For the second time since late last year, the parent of United Wholesale Mortgage has reached a settlement with government authorities. The latest action was due to interest overcharges.

On Dec. 28, 2016, the Department of Justice announced a $48 million settlement with United Wholesale-parent United Shore Financial Services LLC.

The lender was accused of violating the False Claims Act by pressuring and compensating underwriters to approve loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration.
