IndyMac Deal Closes, Financial Freedom Becomes Part of OneWest Bank

image Late Thursday the The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced that it had completed the sale of IndyMac Federal Bank FSB to OneWest Bank, FSB, a newly formed Pasadena, California-based federal savings bank organized by IMB HoldCo LLC with total assets of approximately $16.0 billion.

The new owners injected $1.55 billion in common equity and agreed to purchase all deposits and approximately $20.7 billion in assets at a discount of $4.7 billion with the FDIC retaining the remaining assets for later disposition.

According to the statement from OneWest, it will operate as a regional bank focused on deposits and conforming and jumbo mortgage lending for its retail customers in Southern California.  Over the time the bank intends to expand its retail branch network which includes 33 branches located primarily in the Los Angeles area.

  • your in the same boat as me they tell u to do something and once u do it ohh no thats not what we said and we no longer warrant that option. Personally Im getting a lawyer think thats ur bet option too.

  • onewest is not looking to do business with the consumer home owner. They will lie steal and whatever they can to take ur home. Ive been dealing with them for 8 months they say deal then say no we stopped making that deal 1 week later. They took my home loan payment then continued with forclosure.rnDont trust anything they say even if in writing. they will not warrant any deal made in written or verbal form..Buyers beware ur next.

  • Ive had nothing but bad business with them. They lie cheat and steal from consumers. Refuse to work with ppl past due and trying to make good on debt. It went from taking half due to 90% no way ppl can save their homes. They are out for nothing more then moving ur property to their sales books.

  • Well the congrats to Financial Freedom was a little premature. They just announced to the staff at the Rancho Cordova CA office that they are laid off effective today. So any Reverse Mortgage companies looking for good people here is your chance to get a lot of great experienced people in California.

  • Last year at this time, I filed a hardship packet which was promptly turned down. Now that OneWest Bank is taking over I wish to refile with them. Is there a program set up to do this? When I google OneWest Bank it has the same telephone numbers that refer you to Indy Mac. Am I being put off? I just want to refinance to avoid foreclosure!
