David Lewis lives near Kezar Stadium in San Francisco with his wife and two children. The family pursued a loan modification from Wells Fargo when payments became difficult due to an injury David’s wife sustained working as a flight attendant, which reduced the family’s income by 40 percent. Wells Fargo denied the loan modification due to the reduction in income, then encourage the Lewis family to apply for another loan modification. However, they dual tracked the Lewis’ and sold their home at a foreclosure auction during the loan modification negotiations, a practice that will be illegal starting January 1, 2013, due to the California Homeowner Bill of Rights. David and his family want to remain in their home, so they are demanding that Wells Fargo rescind the sale of their home and offer them a fair deal loan modification based on current family income.
