Why the Mortgages Cannot Legally Be Enforced livinglies.wordpress.com | August 30, 2016
From the point of view of Article 9 there can be no foreclosure of a mortgage without the party claiming rights under the mortgage showing that they purchased the mortgage for value. Read more
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.

YVANOVA affirms GLASKI!!! 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 thefiscaltimes.com | December 30, 2015
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. Read more
$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. Read more
Defunct Law Firm Sues Wells Fargo Over Foreclosure Work wsj.com | October 20, 2016
A New Jersey law firm that helped Wells Fargo Bank N.A. foreclose on thousands of homeowners has sued the lender, saying the bank’s delayed efforts to fix its robo-signing problems led the law firm to collapse. Lawyers for the Zucker, Goldberg & Ackerman law firm, which laid off most of its 335 workers last year, are accusing Wells Fargo of taking several years to comply with a 2010 New Jersey Supreme Court order that called for lenders to show that they were properly submitting mortgage details before foreclosing on a property.

California Law: What to Know About Reverse Mortgages wsj.com | October 20, 2016
Most people do not realize what a reverse mortgage is, let alone what the laws in California are on them. But this money-saving information can be invaluable, so it’s important to acquaint yourself with California laws regarding reverse mortgages. A reverse mortgage is a different kind of home loan that allows you to turn the equity you have in your home into cash. This is great for those people who need a constant amount of cash monthly but do not want to take out a loan. They are in essence selling their home one month at a time to the reverse mortgage company. Read more
Six things to consider if your mortgage is underwater myajc.com | October 20, 2016
First, you probably know what it means, but just to be sure… You are underwater if first, you took out a mortgage on your home and you still owe money on it. And second, your home value – what it would fetch on the market – is less than the amount that you owe on the mortgage. Being underwater means that if you were to sell the home, you would need to bring money to the closing to pay off the loan. Read more

Preventing another meltdown thewhig.com | October 16, 2016
Knowledge of past financial crises does not necessarily give policy-makers the ability or wisdom to avoid every pitfall or systemic problem that could lead to a future financial meltdown. However, there is no denying that possessing a firm grasp of financial history could help politicians and central bankers to better understand the perils of lax monetary policy, asset bubbles and mania.

David Dayen: When You Find Out Your Neighbors Own Your House and They Try to Evict You livinglies.wordpress.com | October 12, 2016
Danny Shedd's nightmare began with some cows. When Shedd, a 12-year veteran with combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, finished up his military service at Fort Benning, Georgia, he and his wife, Jacinda, wanted to move to the prairie. The house they settled on in Big Cabin, Oklahoma, was perfect: a 5,400 square-foot, four-bedroom spot built in 2006, which mortgage giant Fannie Mae purchased in a foreclosure auction and was selling for one-third of its appraised value.

RBS to pay $1.1 billion to resolve some of its U.S. mortgage claims reuters.com | September 28, 2016
Royal Bank of Scotland Group will pay $1.1 billion to resolve claims that it sold toxic mortgage-backed securities to credit unions that later failed, the U.S. National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) said. The resolution comes as RBS prepares to settle a number of U.S. cases where it is accused of mis-selling mortgage-backed bonds and brings the U.S. regulator's recoveries against various banks to $4.3 billion over their sales of such securities before the 2008 financial crisis.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Securities and Exchange Commission is dropping some fraud charges against two former executives of Santa Fe-based Thornburg Mortgage.

ABSENCE OF CREDITOR: Breaking Down the Language Of The "Trust" livinglies.wordpress.com | September 26, 2016
The problem with all this is that the REMIC Trust never received the proceeds of sale of the MBS and therefore could not have paid for or purchased any loans. It had no assets. And THAT is why the Trust never shows up as a Holder in Due Course (HDC). HDC is a very strong status that changes the risk of loss on a note. Under state law (UCC) of every state alleging and proving HDC status means that the entire risk shifts to the maker of the note (the person who signed it) even if there were fraudulent or other circumstances when the note was signed.

Latest Case on TILA RESCISSION NOTE: Disagreement Among Circuits Perhaps Ripe for USSC Review Remanded justia.com | October 20, 2016
After plaintiff began missing loan payments on a house she bought in Long Beach, ReconTrust initiated a non-judicial foreclosure. In this case, the lender was Countrywide, the borrower was plaintiff and the trustee was ReconTrust. Plaintiff subsequently filed suit alleging that ReconTrust violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), 15 U.S.C. 1692e(2)(A), by sending her notices that misrepresented the amount of debt she owed.

Judge rejected in its entirety the government's argument to hide Fannie & Freddie docs foxnews.com | October 5, 2016
As the Obama administration runs out the clock on its second term, it seeks to hide ever more of its policies from public scrutiny.

Yes, housing. Read more

FDCPA and FCCPA: Temperatures rising livinglies.wordpress.com | August 24, 2016
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. Read more

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. Read more
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. Read more

Deutsche Bank v. Pinette justia.com | July 1, 2016
Plaintiff-lender Deutsche Bank National Trust Company (as trustee) appealed a superior court decision to grant defendant-borrower Kevin Pinette's motion to dismiss. The lender tried to foreclose on property of Pinette, but the superior court dismissed its claims on foreclosure, the unpaid balance on a promissory note, and a deficiency judgment on the ground that they were barred by claim preclusion, as lender had previously instituted an identical action against borrower in 2013, which had been dismissed for failure to prosecute.
