Across the country, mortgage complaints accounted for a smaller share of overall complaints last year than in 2016. States where the share of mortgage complaints are highest are all on the East Coast.

Of all complaints filed by consumers with the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection during 2017, just 12 percent were filed against mortgage companies.

That’s significant because the preceding year, the bureau reports that complaints filed against mortgage companies made up 18 percent of the annual total.
