The attorney general's office will receive an additional $433,000 in legal fees and costs.
Washington is among the states that agreed to a roughly $120 million settlement with Lender Processing Services over practices that included the "robo-signing" of foreclosure documents without proper review of the papers.
Ferguson said the settlement will require proper execution of documents and prohibit signatures by unauthorized people or those without firsthand knowledge of facts referenced in the documents.
He said the settlement is one more opportunity to improve lending and foreclosure practices for homeowners in the future.
