Are We Heading for Another Housing Crisis?
money.usnews.com | May 12, 2016
Ten years ago, a storm was brewing in the housing market. Lenders were handing out mortgages seemingly to anyone who applied, and in many cases, borrowers weren't asked for documentation to prove income. Some institutions rolled out adjustable-rate mortgages that featured teaser rates and were marketed to consumers as loans that could be easily refinanced before the interest rate was scheduled to reset and send payments into the stratosphere.

California high court opens door to wrongful foreclosure suits
latimes.com | March 6, 2016
During the bust that followed last decade's housing boom, hundreds of thousands of Californians lost their homes to foreclosure. It was a process later found to be rife with problems, such as overwhelmed bank employees who sometimes didn't even read the foreclosure documents in front of them. But challenging foreclosures on the basis of paperwork problems proved to be mostly futile, given California courts had ruled that borrowers who weren't paying their mortgages didn't suffer financial harm.

The Banks Business Model is Foreclosing on Homeowners
March 2, 2016
Securitization is the reason banks want homeowners to foreclose. When a bank assigns the risk of a loan to the investors (certificate holders) of a Real Estate Investment Conduit Trust (SPV), the “bank” is no longer a traditional bank that gets the benefit of mortgage payments. Mortgage banks give as few modifications as possible and comply minimally with statutes put in place to protect borrowers, all while employing tricks to “cash in” on homeowners’ defaults, pushing them to foreclosure.

February 17, 2016
The collapse in 2008 of the housing bubble and its accompanying system of home loan securitization led, among other consequences, to a great national wave of loan defaults and foreclosures. One key legal issue arising out of the collapse was whether and how defaulting homeowners could challenge the validity of the chain of assignments involved in securitization of their loans. We granted review in this case to decide one aspect of that question: whether the borrower on a home loan secured by a deed of trust may base an action for wrongful foreclosure on allegations a purported assignment of the note and deed of trust to the foreclosing party bore defects rendering the assignment void.

Calif. Supreme Court Lets Borrowers Challenge Wrongful Foreclosures
nationalmortgagenews.com | February 19, 2016
The California Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that borrowers may challenge a wrongful foreclosure on the grounds that the assignment of the deed of trust was invalid. The decision in Yvanova v. New Century Mortgage Corp. has the potential to radically increase the number of lawsuits brought by borrowers, particularly on loans that were pooled into securitized trusts, experts on both sides of the issue said.

The Mortgage Industry Keeps Showing It Doesn’t Care About You

When the mortgage industry attributes some of its recent problems to TRID, they aren’t referring to some unheralded Star Wars character. They’re actually engaging in a uniquely unseemly lobbying tactic: using their own failings to bludgeon basic consumer protections.

$5.4 Million! Jury Finds Wells Fargo Committed Fraud When It Used Robo-Signed Document
i-uv.com | December 14, 2015
Congratulations to the experts and attorneys on this. As Marie McDonnell states in the article reproduced below this case is important because it is the first time that Robo-signing has resulted in an award of damages for fraud. I would add that the lawyers must have done a fine job at trial — because ordinarily we don’t see jury instructions that would support punitive damages for robo-signing. The pages are turning on a new chapter.

Pre-crisis mortgage bonds still haunting investors
reuters.com | August 26, 2016
NEW YORK, Aug 25 (IFR) - A New York City property that investors were told would be the home of another iconic Apple store has instead wound up stuck in a mortgage bond facing hundreds of millions in unpaid debt. Apple never built a store on the 34th Street site and, like much of the bond's remaining US$1.7bn collateral, not one penny of the principal on its US$100m mortgage has been repaid.

Welcome To Hell(ocs)! Home Equity Loans Come Back to Haunt Borrowers, Banks
anthonybsanders.wordpress.com | August 24, 2016
A home equity lines of credit (or HELOC) is a loan, using your home as collateral, that lets you borrow up to a certain amount, rather than a set dollar amount. A HELOC acts like a credit card: It has a credit limit, and you can borrow against it, pay all or part of the balance, and borrow again up to the credit limit. The interest rate varies with the prime rate.

This is just the beginning of what I have been predicting for 10 years.

A 53-year-old plaintiff told a federal court that the company's mortgage servicer would call him almost every day — sometimes two or three times a day — threatening foreclosure and pressuring him to accept an unfavorable change to his loan.

PwC sued for $5.5bn over mortgage underwriter TBW’s collapse
ft.com | August 16, 2016
PwC is being sued for a record $5.5bn for failing to detect fraud that led to a bank collapse during the global financial crisis, in a case that could bring more auditing firms into the line of fire. Since the financial crisis, banks have paid out hundreds of billions of dollars in settlements while other services companies, such as credit rating agencies, have had to dig deep for payouts. But there have only been a handful of significant cases involving audit firms, which have argued they cannot be held liable for missing signs of fraud.

Mortgage lenders and investors needn’t worry about whether a homeowners’ association super lien will be given priority over a first mortgage in the state of Nevada, at least for now. According to an alert published Monday by Ballard Spahr, the Ninth Circuit Court Appeals ruled last week that an older version of Nevada’s laws, which previously gave super-priority status to HOA liens, is unconstitutional.

DOJ Takes Aim at Individuals: A quest to uncover violations of criminal law that purportedly occurred during the 2007-2008 financial crisis
metrocorpcounsel.com | August 14, 2016
Notwithstanding the recent series of record-breaking settlements between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and many of the world’s largest financial institutions[1], the DOJ has now set its sights on investigating individuals – pursuant to a civil statute – in a quest to uncover violations of criminal law that purportedly occurred at or around the time of the 2007–2008 financial crisis. Specifically, the DOJ is relying on the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA)[2], a broadly drafted law enacted as a result of the savings and loans crisis in the 1980s, in order to pursue fraud charges related to the mortgage-backed securities industry that it previously concluded were not viable as a criminal prosecution.

Forbes: Fannie, Freddie Could Need as Much as $126 Billion in Crisis
livinglies.wordpress.com | August 9, 2016
Fannie and Freddie have reportedly been cash-cows for the federal government who have allegedly held the quasi-governmental guarantors hostage during eight-years of government receivership. Fannie and Freddie have returned to the Treasury over $60 billion more than they received in the bailout. But the amount they owe to the government remains outstanding. It is likely that the tax payer is being prepped to dole out another bail-out for the profitable GSE’s that insure trusts that are empty or no longer exist.

Beware of Thieves and Con Artists
livinglies.wordpress.com | August 8, 2016
I know that the first line of thieves and con artists are viewed by many as the banks and the "servicers" and the "trustees." But the second wave are those who prey on the emotional turmoil of homeowners and get them to deed their homes into some sort of convoluted entity that will (1) shred the homeowners credibility in court and (2) essentially allow the new thief to get into your living room before the old thief has a chance to do so. In all events none of these schemes will ever do anything substantive to save a home, although some of the schemes may delay the judgment and sale for a short period of time.

FDCPA and FCCPA (or similar state legislation) claims are getting traction across the country. Bank of America violated the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA") and the related Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act ("FCCPA"). (Doc. 26).

California Code of Civil Procedure section 128.5
July 26, 2016
Prior to 1995, courts had the ability to impose monetary sanctions on litigants and their counsel for almost any kind of transgression, and some judges developed reputations for doing so very liberally! The relative calm that reigned after a significant change in the law in 1995 may be over. Effective January 1, 2015, California Code of Civil Procedure section 128.5 — a statute that authorizes the imposition of monetary sanctions for bad faith litigation tactics that are frivolous or solely intended to cause delay — is back. Dormant for several years but never repealed, the Legislature resuscitated it in 2014, and it again becomes part of every California litigator’s arsenal. This article briefly explains this development.

Saterbak Petition for Review Denied Sc Notification for: S234109
appellatecases.courtinfo.ca.gov | July 14, 2016
Laura Saterbak appeals a judgment dismissing her first amended complaint (FAC) after the sustaining of a demurrer without leave to amend. Saterbak claims the assignment of the deed of trust (DOT) to her home by Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS) to Structured Asset Mortgage Investment II Trust 2007-AR7 Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates 2007-AR7 (2007-AR7 trust or Defendant) was invalid. Arguing the assignment occurred after the closing date for the 2007-AR7 trust, and that the signature on the instrument was forged or robo-signed, she seeks to cancel the assignment and obtain declaratory relief. We conclude Saterbak lacks standing and affirm the judgment.

Deutsche Bank's Chief Economist Calls For €150 Billion Bailout Of European Banks
zerohedge.com | July 12, 2016
The cards have been tipped, and it appears Italy's Prime Minister may have been right. In the aftermath of Brexit, much of the investing public's attention has turned to Italian banks which are in desperate need of a bailout as a result of €360 billion in bad loans growing worse by the day (and not a bail-in, as European regulations mandate, as that would lead to an immediate bank run) to avoid a freeze and/or collapse of Italy's banking sector. This has pushed stock prices - and default risk - on Italian banks to record levels.
