FORECLOSURE-RELATED GLOSSARY AND DEFINITIONS

SEARCH FEATURE: Control + F (at the same time) then type word/phrase you are looking for.

GLOSSSARY AND LEGAL DEFINITIONS

Acceleration clause- This is a portion/clause contained in your mortgage that allows the bank to call in the whole balance due on the loan in the event of missed payments. Without this clause, the bank must declare a separate default for each missed payment as the payment is missed. An acceleration clause allows a missed payment to be considered a default of the whole note and mortgage, and allows the bank to call the full balance due. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTPgAtaY5a8 )

Accrued Interest – The amount of interest earned on a note, but not yet received in payment.  An example would be a straight note (no payments).  At the end of the first year the balance owed would be the original principal plus one year’s interest.

Ad Valorem Taxes– is a Latin term meaning “based on value,” which applies to property taxes based on a percentage of the county’s assessment of the property’s value. The assessed value is the standard basis for local real property taxes, although some place “caps” (maximums) on the percentage of value or “parcel taxes”, which establish a flat rate per parcel. Ad valorem taxes may also be applied to personal property, such as a duty on imported items and motor vehicles.

Add-On Interest – The interest is applied to the loan amount to get yearly interest.  This is multiplied by the number of years.  This total interest is added on to the loan balance.  The monthly payment is calculated by dividing this number (principal plus add-on interest) by the number of payments.  This method contrasts with charging interest on the remaining principal balance.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) – A mortgage or other real estate loan wherein the interest rate and payments that correspond to the interest are adjustable from year to year according to some index such as the rate paid by the government on Treasure Bills.

Adversary– The bankruptcy rules consist of nine distinct parts with Part VII governing adversary proceedings. Under Bankruptcy Rules Rule 7001, an adversary proceeding may be filed in a debtor’s bankruptcy action for certain specific reasons. An adversary proceeding may be filed to recover money or property of a debtor, for the sale of a debtor’s property by a co-owner, to object or revoke a discharge, to revoke the confirmation of a reorganization plan, to determine the dischargeability of a debt, to obtain an injunction or other equitable relief, and for other matters.

Affirmative Defense– is a type of defense in which the defendant seeks to avoid liability by introducing new evidence not addresses in the claims of the plaintiff’s complaint. Such a defense must be raised in the defendant answer, and because affirmative defenses require the assertion of facts beyond those claimed by the plaintiff, the defendant has the burden of proof for the defense. The burden of proof is typically lower than beyond a reasonable doubt. It can either be clear and convincing or preponderance of the evidence. An affirmative defense must be timely made by the defendant in order for the court to consider it, or else it is considered waived by the defendant’s failure to assert it. SEE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfp1LQ_YPNk and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mizeLdLOBEM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm26tleKJWg

Algebraic Logic – The calculator logic of putting the operation sign (plus, minus, times or divided by) before the number is entered.

All-Inclusive Deed of Trust – A note secured by deed of trust that “wraps around” a smaller senior loan.  See also “Wraparound Mortgage”.

Allonge– A paper attached to a negotiable instrument to enable writing endorsements when the back of the bill is full. An allonge is rare because bills of exchange are no longer very common. Limited case law regarding this matter exists because of its rarity, but there is some.

Amendment Of A Note – Changing the interest, payment schedule, or due date on an existing note without writing a new note.

Amortization – The payments on an amortized loan are established to contain both principal and interest so that the loan will be paid off in full by the end of the amortization period.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) – The true cost of a loan to a borrower as required by the Truth in Lending Laws.

Arrears – 1)  Behind in making payments, as in “The payments were 3 months in arrears.”  2)  Later than earned, as in “Loan interest is paid in arrears.  The interest for May is paid in the June payment.

Assignee – The person acquiring a note from a previous holder. 

Assignment – Transfer of the right of a note from one holder to another. 

Assignor – The person giving up ownership of a note to a new holder.

Automatic stay– is a freeze imposed on the lender as soon as you file for bankruptcy. The stay prevents lenders from moving forward on debt collections. Bankruptcy automatically triggers the stay, but in some situations lenders can convince the bankruptcy court to lift the stay.

Bankruptcy- Chapter 7– A filing under Chapter 7 is called liquidation. It is the most common type of bankruptcy proceeding. Liquidation involves the appointment of a trustee who collects the non-exempt property of the debtor, sells it and distributes the proceeds to the creditors. Not dischargeable in bankruptcy are alimony and child support, taxes, and fraudulent transactions. To qualify for relief under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, the debtor may be an individual, a partnership, or a corporation or other business entity. Filing a bankruptcy petition automatically suspends all existing legal actions and is often used to forestall foreclosure or imposition of judgment. After 45 or more days a creditor with a debt secured by real or personal property can petition the court to have the “automatic stay” of legal rights removed and a foreclosure to proceed. When the court formally declares a party as a bankrupt, a party cannot file for bankruptcy again for seven years.

Bankruptcy Chapter 13–   Bankruptcy law provides for the development of a plan that allows a debtor, who is unable to pay his creditors, to resolve his debts through the division of his assets among his creditors. The philosophy behind the law is to allow the debtor to make a fresh start, not to be punished for inability to pay debts. Bankruptcy law allows certain debtors to be discharged of the financial obligations they have accumulated, after their assets are distributed, even if their debts have not been paid in full. Chapter 13 allows individuals who have reliable incomes to pay all or a portion of their debts under protection and supervision of the court. Under Chapter 13, you file a bankruptcy petition and a proposed payment plan with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The law requires that the payments have a value at least equal to what would have been distributed in a Chapter 7 liquidation case. An important feature of Chapter 13 is that you will be permitted to keep all your assets while the plan is in effect and after you have successfully completed it

Bankruptcy remote is a term that describes the relative position of one company as it relates to bankruptcy vis-a-vis others within a corporate group, whereby the insolvency of the bankruptcy remote entity has as little economic impact as possible on other entities within the group. A bankruptcy remote entity is often a single-purpose entity. In practice, due to the concept of limited liability, most companies in developed legal systems will be de facto bankruptcy remote from other members of the group (except in limited circumstances where creditors are permitted to pierce the corporate veil). However, in financial structuring, references to bankruptcy remoteness usually imply additional steps being taken to protect group members from attendant liability, such as by using an orphan structure to remove the legal ownership of the bankruptcy remote vehicle from the group, whilst retaining the economic benefits of it. Such structures are used where the vehicle’s activities may give liability to the group as a whole, for example, under certain environmental protection legislation, or in relation to tax liabilities in certain countries.

Commercial mortgage loans often require that the properties financed be placed in special limited liability companies (LLCs) or corporations which are bankruptcy remote from their owners, to allow the lender to seize the property in the event of loan payment failures and not be stopped by the owner’s filing bankruptcy.

Balloon Payment – A large payment on a note, usually due at the end of the payment schedule.  There can also be partial balloon payments during the note term.

Beneficiary – The person entitled to receive the payments on a note.

Bifurcation -Splitting something into two pieces. For example, an investor might wish to run portfolio analysis under different market conditions, such as if an interest rate cut occurs or does not occur. See http://www.youtube.com/user/consumerwarningnet#p/a 

Blended Rate – The overall interest rate when two or more loans are on a property.  It is higher than the rate on the lowest rate loan and lower than the rate on the highest interest loan.  Also called Overall Rate (OAR).

Boiler Plate – Slang for standardized legal language or template format writing often used in loan forms, real estate closings, and legal contracts.

Buy Down – In order to reduce the interest and payments on a loan for the buyer, the property seller may pay the lender some money up front to “buy down” the interest and payments for a certain period of time.  Example – The seller buys down on a 30-year loan at 14% interest so that the buyer of the property only pays 11% interest for the first 2 years.

Calculator – An electronic machine, programmed to perform specific computations.  It has a “mind of its own” which was developed by the programmer and manufacturer.  Different calculators are designed for performing different jobs.

CallableAble to be redeemed prior to maturity. The term usually applies to bonds and convertible securities. The issuer of a callable security has to state the conditions under which the security may be called at the time of issue. For most securities, there is a certain initial time period in which the security cannot be called. A bond will usually be called when market interest rates fall below the yield being paid on the bond (bonds are usually called when the price rises to a certain point). To reflect this risk, a callable security is usually priced lower than a non-callable security

Carry Paper – For a property seller to take part of the entire sale price of the property in the form of a secured note.  Example – The seller carried $20,000 in paper to facilitate the sale of his property.

Cash Flow Diagram – A graphic representation of a series of cash flows, in or out or both, showing how much and their timing.

Cause of Action– is a right to bring a lawsuit. A person or entity may have a cause of action limited by the time frame set forth by statute for bringing a lawsuit. A cause of action may exist under the common law (judge made law) or granted by statutes. In order to have a valid cause of action, all the legally defined elements of a claim must exist.

CDO.- An investment-grade security backed by a pool of various other securities. CDOs can be made up of any type of debt, in the form of bonds or loans, and usually do not deal with mortgages. CDOs, like CBOs and CMOs, are divided into slices, each slice is made up of debt which has a unique amount of risk associated with it. CDOs are often sold to investors who want exposure to the income generated by the debt but do not want to purchase the debt itself.
. A general term used to refer to collateralized bond obligations (CBO), collateralized loan obligations (CLO), and collateralized mortgage obligations (CMO).

Certified Mail– is a method of delivery used for important mailings that require proof of receipt, such as legal notifications. Certified mail provides the sender with a mailing receipt and a delivery record that is maintained by the Postal Service. A return receipt that provides the sender with proof of delivery can also be purchased for an additional fee. Certified mail service is available for First-Class Mail and Priority Mail. Certified Mail using Priority Mail is not yet available through this service.

Chain of titleChronological order of conveyance of a property given in an abstract of title from the earliest owner to the current one.

Chargeoff- A chargeoff of a debt occurs when, after a certain period of time, credit card or loan issuers consider an unpaid credit card or loan account as a loss and therefore charge it off their books. Often, the account is then turned over to collection firms or attorneys for handling. A chargeoff for debts can be collected several years later unless it was discharged in a bankruptcy procedure.

Civil Procedure– is the body of law governing the methods and practices used in civil litigation. It can be enacted by the legislature or the courts. It can be the rules that are used in handling a civil case from the time the initial complaint is filed through the pretrial discovery, the trial and any subsequent appeal. In a nut shell it can taken as the methods, procedures, and practices used in civil cases.

Clear – Remove previous instructions and data from the calculator so they will not interfere with the next calculations.  You can clear the program, the financial registers, the storage registers, and the display.

Clear Title– refers to the uncontested and unencumbered ownership of real property. A property lacking clear title is said to have a cloud on its title. A cloud on title may arise, for example, by a lien for nonpayment of a note secured by the property. Clouds on title may be removed by bringing an action to quiet title in a court of equity.

Closed-End Mortgage– is a loan in which the lender is given a security interest in real estate and the borrower may not repay the loan before the maturity date. The loan amount may not be increased or extended over the life of the loan. The borrower must also seek permission from the lender to incur additional debt, using the same collateral as security for the debt. It is the opposite of an open-end mortgage.

Closing – Completion of a transaction, including details like preparation and recording of legal documents, procurement of applicable insurance coverage, and transfer of fund.

Closing Costs – Closing costs are the expenses associated with buying real estate. Some of the items that may be included, among others, are:

– the loan origination fee or a point, charged for the lender’s costs of processing the loan. The fee is usually a percentage of the loan amount and the percentage varies among lenders the loan discount, called point or discount point, which is a one-time charge imposed by the lender or broker to lower the interest rate credit report fee, used by banks to determine the borrower’s credit rating. The Real Estate Procedures Closing Act, RESPA, requires lenders and mortgage brokers to give you a Good Faith Estimate of the loan-related expenses that are due at closing. However, this is only an estimate and actual costs may be significantly higher. Certain costs are prorated between the buyer and seller, such as property taxes. Closing costs may be negotiated between the buyer and seller. State and federal laws, which vary, apply to determine whether the seller or buyer may negotiate at the time of contract who pays certain closing costs. For example, FHA loans and 90% LTV (Loan to Value) typically allow a 6% seller contribution.

Collateral – Property pledged as security for performance of an obligation.

Collection Service – A neutral third party, other than the borrower or lender.  The collection agency or collection service collects the payments due on a note and forwards the proceeds to the proper recipients.

Complaint– In foreclosure, a complaint is the initial document filed with the court or other authority by a person or entity claiming legal rights against another. The party filing the complaint is usually called the plaintiff and the party against whom the complaint is filed is called the defendant or defendants. Complaints must properly state the factual as well as legal basis for the claim. A complaint also must follow statutory requirements, which vary by jurisdiction. When the complaint is filed, a copy of the complaint and the summons must be served on a defendant before a response is required

Compounding – The situation where interest accrues and then gathers interest.  Example – A $310,000 straight note (no payments) with 12% compound monthly interest earns $91,200 the first year.  Adding that to the original principal gives the next year starting balance of $401,200.  This sum will earn 12% interest.  The process repeats each year.

Compound Interest – See Compounding.

Constant (Loan Constant) – The yearly payment on a loan divided by the remaining principal balance.  As amortized loans are paid down, the Loan Constant increases.

Continuance– is a postponement of a date of a trial, hearing or other court appearance. An order for a continuance may be requested from the court by one of the parties, or the parties may agree to stipulate to a continuance. A court is more likely to decline a continuance if there have been other previous continuances. A continuance may be requested for various reasons, such as unavailability of an attorney or interested party, necessity of extra time to prepare for the matter, and others

Contract for Deed – A contract for deed allows the seller and purchaser to elect specific requirements concerning purchase price, interest, and payment terms. Also, fees related to insurance and taxes can be set in the direction of seller or the purchaser at their option before the signing of the agreement. A deed is the written document which transfers title (ownership) or an interest in real property to another person. The deed must describe the real property, name the party transferring the property (grantor), the party receiving the property (grantee) and be signed and notarized by the grantor. To complete the transfer (conveyance) the deed must be recorded in the office of the County Recorder or Recorder of Deeds. There are two basic types of deeds: a warranty deed, which guarantees that the grantor owns title, and the quitclaim deed, which transfers only that interest in the real property which the grantor actually has. The quitclaim is often used among family members or from one joint owner to the other when there is little question about existing ownership, or just to clear the title. A quitclaim deed conveys only such rights as the grantor has. A warranty deed conveys specifically described rights which together comprise good title.

Core Proceedings– In bankruptcy law, a proceeding is core if it invokes a substantive right provided by the Bankruptcy Code or by nature could arise only in the context of a bankruptcy case

Court Costs– include filing fees, charges for serving summons and subpoenas, court reporter charges for depositions, court transcripts and copying papers and exhibits. Court costs are often awarded to the successful party in a lawsuit. Attorneys’ fees can be included as court costs only if there is a statute providing for attorneys’ fee awards in a particular type of case, or if the case involved a contract which had an attorneys’ fee clause. Some statutes provide that costs may be waived upon the petition of an indigent person in certain cases where otherwise a person would be deprived of their due process rights of access to the judicial system.

Courthouse – Place where deeds and real estate paper are recorded.  See also Recorder’s Office and Registrar of Deeds.

Counter-Claim– is made by the defendant to a civil proceeding, in a main action against the plaintiff or against the plaintiff and other people. This claim may be an attempt to offset or reduce the amount/implications of the plaintiff’s original claim against the defendant, or it may be a different claim.

Credit Report – The report on a person’s credit standing issued by a credit information bureau such as Experian.  It shows what credit a person has been granted and what their payment record is.

Creditor – The person to whom money is owed.

Current – Payments are current when they are up to date.

Current Principal Balance – The balance currently owed on a note, which may be smaller or larger than the original principal balance.

Dead Equity – Equity in property, not earning interest, not being used to acquire more property.

Debt – An obligation owed by a borrower to a creditor.

Debtor – One who owes money to another.

Debt service – The monthly payments required to keep the loans on a property current.

Decimal – The period between numbers designating the difference between whole numbers and parts thereof.  Example – 1,1, wherein the first 1 is a whole number and the second 1 represents 1/10th.  In this case there is on number to the right of the decimal.

Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure– is a method sometimes used by a lienholder on property to avoid a lengthy and expensive foreclosure process, With a deed in lieu of foreclosure (DIL), a foreclosing lienholder agrees to have the ownership interest transferred to the bank/lienholder as payment in full. The debtor basically deeds the property to the bank instead of them paying for foreclosure proceedings. Therefore, if a debtor fails to make mortgage payments and the bank is about to foreclose on the property, the deed in lieu of foreclosure is an option that chooses to give the bank ownership of the property rather than having the bank use the legal process of foreclosure.

Deed of Trust – A deed of trust is a document which pledges real property to secure a loan, used instead of a mortgage in certain states. A deed of trust involves a third party called a trustee, usually a title insurance company or escrow company, who acts on behalf of the lender. When you sign a deed of trust, you in effect are giving a trustee title (ownership) of the property, but you hold the rights and privileges to use and live in or on the property. The trustee holds the original deed for the property until you repay the loan. When the loan is fully paid, the trustor requests the trustee to return the title by reconveyance. If the loan becomes delinquent the beneficiary can file a notice of default and, if the loan is not brought current, can demand that the trustee begin foreclosure on the property so that the beneficiary may either be paid or obtain title. Unlike a mortgage, a deed of trust also gives the trustee the right to foreclose on your property without taking you to court first.

Default (legal meaning) – default refers to a failure to fulfill a legal obligation or duty. For example, a default by a borrower under a loan agreement permits a lender to take certain actions in response to the default. Also, refers to the failure of a party to do something that the law required him to do. A default occurs when a person who is required to be present before the court of law for some proceedings before it, fails to appear in court.

Defective Title– Defective title refers to a title to real property which is invalid because a claimed prior holder of the title did not have title, or there is an inaccurate description of the property, or some other “cloud” over it, which may or may not be learned from reading the deed. To avoid a defective title problem, a purchaser will often research the chain of title.

Chain of title refers to the history of passing of title ownership to real property from the present owner back to the original owner. A record of title documents may be maintained by a registry office or civil law notary. Chains of title include notations of deeds, judgments of distribution from estates, certificates of death of a joint tenant, foreclosures, judgments of quiet title, and other recorded transfers of title to real property. Before purchasing property, the purchaser will usually hire a title companies or abstractors to search out the chain of title and provide a report so that a purchaser will be assured the title is clear of any claims. In many real estate transactions, insurance companies issue title insurance based upon the chain of title to the property when it is transferred.

Delinquent – When payments are overdue, they are said to be delinquent.

Delta – A Greek symbol shaped like a triangle, which stands for change between two numbers.  Example – Delta % from 100 to 125 is 25% increase.

Deposition– The sworn testimony of a witness taken before trial held out of court with no judge present. The witness is placed under oath to tell the truth and lawyers for each party may ask questions. A deposition is part of pre-trial discovery (fact-finding), set up by an attorney for one of the parties to a lawsuit demanding the sworn testimony of the opposing party, a witness, or an expert intended to be called at trial by the opposition. If the person requested to testify, called the deponent, is a party to the lawsuit or someone who works for an involved party, notice of time and place of the deposition can be given to the other side’s attorney, but if the witness is an independent third party, a subpoena will be served on that person to appear to testify.

Discount – A purchase price less than the remaining principal balance of a note.

Discounted Paper – Real estate paper bought or sold at a price less than the principal balance.

Discounting – The practice of adjusting the price of a note to compensate for other factors such as terms, payments, interest rate, security, and needs of the seller.  The discount raises the yield to the buyer.

Discount Points – A point is one percent of the principal amount.

Discount Rate– refers to the interest rate that banks pay on loans to them from the Federal Reserve. Banks whose reserves dip below the reserve requirement set by the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors must take immediate action to make up their shortfall. The Federal Reserve will usually make a short-term loan to a bank in this situation to give the bank an opportunity to make adjustments in its loan and investment portfolio that will permit it to raise its reserves.

Discovery– is a fact-finding process that takes place after a lawsuit has been filed and before trial in the matter, in order to allow the parties in the case to prepare for settlement or trial. It is based upon the belief that a free exchange of information is more likely to help uncover the truth regarding the facts in issue. Court rules and state rules of evidence govern the discovery procedure. Some discovery methods include written questions called interrogatories, requests for admission which can be only admitted or denied, oral questions at depositions, requests for inspection of property impossible or impractical to move, and requests for production of papers and other physical items to be delivered to the requesting party. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyecWBmGqfU

Double Escrow – Two separate but related escrows or closings, each contingent or dependent on the other.  Example – You are buying a note and reselling it immediately for profit.  The buy and resale escrows are contingent on each other and close at the exact same time.  See Simultaneous Closing.

Due Process– Due process generally requires fairness in government proceedings. A person is entitled to notice and opportunity to be heard at a hearing when they have property at stake. Laws should be applied to persons equally, without discrimination on prohibited grounds, such as gender, nationality, handicap, or age. For example, when a person’s home is in danger of tax foreclosure, the notice of delinquency is required to be sent within a certain time period and the person must be allowed to pay the full amount owed before it is sold to a third party. If there is an error in taxation or the person wishes to contest the appraisal, an appeals process is available.

Due on Sale Clause– Due on sale clauses are provisions in a contract, typically a loan against property, which is an acceleration clause in a loan, calling for payment of the entire principal balance in full, triggered by the transfer or sale of a property. Such a clause permits a secured mortgage lender (federal, state or private) to call the entire unpaid loan balance due and payable immediately if the property securing the loan is sold, transferred, traded, gifted or otherwise disposed of without the lender’s prior written consent.

Durable Power of Attorney– is a legal document that enables the grantor (Principal) to designate another person called the agent or attorney-in-fact to act on behalf of the Principal, even in the event the individual becomes disabled or incapacitated. Therefore a “durable” power of attorney stays valid even if the Principal is not able to handle his or her affairs (incapacitated). Usually a power of attorney becomes ineffective if its grantor dies or becomes incapacitated. If the grantor does not specify that that the power of attorney is to be durable, it will automatically end when the principal becomes incapacitated.

Effective Interest Rate – The overall yield earned on an investment, taking into account the discount and all existing loan terms.

Encumbered– means to burden with debts or legal claims. For example, an interest in real property may be encumbered by mortgages. When property is jointly owned, signatures of all owners is usually required to encumber the property.

End Buyer – The person who purchases the real estate note you find.

Endorsement–  A signature used to legally transfer a negotiable instrument. Usually found at the bottom of last page of the Note, if there is no room, then an Allonge is attached.

Enlargement of Time– refers to extension of time during which a party may plead a case, file a requisite document in court etc. The party seeks the court’s leave for granting such time when he or she files a motion for Enlargement of time.

Enter – Putting a number or other information into the calculator.  An entry starts in the display and then is entered into the calculator inner workings for use.

Equity – The amount left over after subtracting the loans from the value of the property.

Equity Cushion – The margin of safety over and above a specific loan on a property.  A $100,000 property with $65,000 in loans would have a $35,000 equity cushion to protect the loans.

Escalation – Rising loan payments as time goes on.

Escrow – A neutral third party stakeholder that receives the instruments, contracts, documents and funds in a transaction as needed from both parties.  Escrow sees that the terms and conditions of the contract are fulfilled according to the escrow instructions.

Escrow Instructions – Written instructions to an escrow officer, signed by both parties to a transaction.  This tells the escrow officer exactly what to do to complete the transaction.

Escrow Officer – The person responsible for administration of the transactions in an escrow office.

Execution – The legal signing of a document.  In order to record an instrument, a Notary Public must witness its execution.

Existing Financing – The financing on a property before making any changes.  Example – When looking for a property to buy, you are first interested in the existing financing.  See also Proposed Financing.

Extension Agreement – A written agreement giving a debtor more time to pay on an obligation.

Face Amount – The original principal balance appearing on the face of the note.  Be sure to check the current principal balance of a seasoned note because it may be drastically different than the face amount.

Fannie Mae– is another name for the Federal National Mortgage Association. Fannie Mae is a private, shareholder-owned company that aims to assist Americans become homeowners. Rather than lending money directly to home buyers, Fannie Mae works with lenders to ensure they have sufficient money to lend to those trying to obtain mortgages.

Final Judgment -. the written determination of a lawsuit by the judge who presided at trial (or heard a successful motion to dismiss or a stipulation for judgment), which renders (makes) rulings on all issues and completes the case unless it is appealed to a higher court. It is also called a final decree or final decision. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkDTeW5-Sh8

Flipping – Slang for referring a note to an investor and making a quick cash profit.

Foreclosure – A judicial foreclosure is the means of enforcing one’s right to payment under a Mortgage.  The judge orders the property to be sold at auction and the proceeds used to pay the creditor.  A Trust Deed can be foreclosed by having the Trustee auction the property via Trustee’s Sale.

Free and Clear – Property that has no loans on it whatsoever is free and clear.

Full Disclosure– is a legal requirement in various situations, such as real estate transactions and prenuptial agreements, that seeks to balance the negotiating power of both parties to a transaction through equal possession of relevant information. It is a requirement that the whole truth must be told before a purchase is made or a contract is signed, so that the purchaser or signer is fully informed about the consequences of his/her decision.

Fully Amortized – A loan whose payments include both interest and principal and will eventually be paid in full during its term with no balloon payment.

FV – Future Value – The balloon payment of a loan or the loan balance as of some future date.

Ginnie Mae– is a nickname for the Government National Mortgage Association, which guarantees investors the timely payment of principal and interest on mortgage-backed securities (MBS) backed by federally insured or guaranteed loans — mainly loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Good Faith Estimate– provides the borrower with the information needed to shop for a loan effectively. A Good Faith Estimate sets out all the costs associated with the mortgage, and often experts recommend seeing it before committing to a loan. When a person applies for a mortgage, the government requires the lender to give a “Good Faith Estimate” within three days of the application. A Good Faith Estimate helps to compare the real costs of competing mortgage offers. It may be tricky if different lenders list the same costs in different way, or if the same costs are incomplete or inaccurate. A Good Faith Estimate covers every expense associated with a home loan, including interest rate and discount points, lender’s fees, title and transfer charges, prepaid interest, insurance, and expected increase in fees. A person can protect himself/herself from nasty surprises by asking the lender to “lock in” its fees. Along with the Good Faith Estimate, the lender also provides a Truth in Lending disclosure form which gives the Annual Percentage Rate on the mortgage.

Grantee– in the context of real property law is a person to whom an estate or interest in real property passes, in or by a deed. The person who passes the property is called a grantor. Laws affecting the rights and obligations of grantees are primarily governed by state laws, which vary by state.

Grantor– in the context of real property law is a person from or by whom an estate or interest in real property passes, in or by a deed. The person to whom the property passes is called a grantee. Laws affecting the rights and obligations of grantors are primarily governed by state laws, which vary by state.

Green Note – A note that is created in the sale of property for the specific purpose of immediate resale to a prearranged investor. In this case it might be construed to be a direct loan of money from the investor to the property Seller; and therefore subject o usury and truth in lending laws.  See also Usury and Truth in Lending.

Though title to the property is not transferred, hypothecation creates a right by the creditor to liquidate the property to satisfy the debt in the event of default. If the debt isn’t paid, the creditor may have the property seized to satisfy the debt, although the person hypothecating the property is not personally liable if the collateral doesn’t pay off the debt

The lender has the ability to accept or deny a request for a loan modification after evaluating the borrower’s application and financial history. Loan modifications may reduce the interest rate, but extend the duration of loan; these types of modifications may end up costing the borrower more money in the long run. SEE

Non-Judicial Foreclosure- Non-judicial foreclosure is only available for deeds of trust with power-of-sale clauses. They are not available for traditional mortgages. Where available, non-judicial foreclosures are heavily regulated. Generally, before foreclosing, lenders must give special notice to the property-owner. Afterwards, lenders must wait a specified time before auctioning off the property.

THE NON-JUDICIAL FORECLOSURE PROCESS

There are many states that use Deeds of Trust rather than mortgages. An example of a non-judicial foreclosure is as follows:

1. The Notice of Default (NOD) starts the non-judicial foreclosure process. The lender forwards a Declaration of Default and an Instruction to the Trustee to proceed with the NOD, the Trustee will sign and cause to be recorded the NOD in the Office of the County Recorder of the appropriate county.

A copy of the NOD is mailed to all parties entitled to its receipt. The Trustee will order a Trustee’s Sale Guarantee (TSG) from a title company. The TSG assures the priority of each lien or encumbrance recorded against the property and provides the mailing information for the parties entitled to receive the NOD.

2. The Three (3) Month Reinstatement Period. This is the minimum period, required by law, to wait before a Notice of Sale can be published and recorded. Throughout the foreclosure process, up until five (5) days prior to the Trustee’s Sale date, or postponed sale date, the borrower can fully reinstate the loan.

The lender may endeavor to negotiate workout and forbearance agreements.

3. The Notice of Trustee’s Sale – 21 Day Publication Period. No sooner than three (3) months from the recording date of the NOD, a Notice of Trustee’s Sale, indicating the place, date and time of the sale, must be published in a local newspaper.

Twenty-one (21) days thereafter the property may be eligible to be sold at public auction to the highest bidder.

The borrower has the right to reinstate the loan up until five (5) days prior to the published sale date, or postponed sale date. In the event the NOD was filed due to a balloon payment and/or maturity date, the lender(s) may require the loan be paid in full at any time during the foreclosure. Otherwise, in the five (5) days preceding the sale or postponed sale, the lender(s) may accept reinstatement, or require that the loan be paid in full.

4. The Trustee’s Sale. The Notice of Trustee’s Sale will designate the date, time and location of the auction. The property is typically sold along with other properties auctioned by the Trustee.

A. Bidding.

Full Credit Bidding. The lender(s)’ opening bid for the property (also known as the “Credit Bid”) may be the total amount due on the loan, including principal, accrued interest to the date of the sale, late charges, legal fees, foreclosure fees, advances, interest on advances, etc. (referred to as a full credit bid).

Under Bidding. The opening bid requested by the lender(s) may be less than the total amount due. These circumstances may require the advice of an attorney, an accountant or other professional. Specific bidding instructions to the Trustee are required if under bidding is elected by the lender(s).

Bidding Instructions. While full credit bidding may not be appropriate, unless otherwise instructed in writing, no later than three (3) days prior to the sale date, or postponed sale date, the lender will direct the Trustee to proceed with a bid usually in the amount of the unpaid principal balance of the loan, directing the Trustee to increase the Lenders’ bid to the unpaid debt if a third party is bidding at the sale.

The property is sold to the highest bidder. If no one bids at the sale, the property is sold to the foreclosing lender(s) for the opening bid, whatever it may be. The Trustee conveys title by signing and recording a Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

When Can a Lender Foreclose? To exercise a non-judicial foreclosure against a borrower’s property, the lender(s) must follow certain statutory

procedures set forth in the Civil Code. A lender can begin a non-judicial foreclosure (without proceeding with a lawsuit to foreclose) when a borrower defaults under the terms, covenants and conditions contained in the Note and/or Deed of Trust. Most often a non-judicial foreclosure is begun because a borrower has not paid one or more of his/her/their regular installment payments.

How can a Lender Try to Collect from the Borrower? The Lender may begin following up with borrowers if their payments are not received within the normal 10 day grace period.

The first contact is attempted by telephone with a follow up letter. If the borrower fails to respond to both telephone and/or written notice of the late payment, a letter is written letting them know of the Lenders intention to foreclose.

What are the Costs Associated with a Foreclosure?. The Lender may use a specialist company to provide foreclosure services, from filing the NOD through conducting the Trustee’s Sale.

Acting as the Trustee, the company can charges fees as allowed by law. In addition, the Trustee passes along their mailing, posting, recording and other related costs and expenses of the foreclosure. The Trustee purchases a Trustee’s Sale Guarantee, described above, from a title company. Required publication of the Notice of Sale in newspapers or other publications local to the property result in additional costs and expenses. Depending upon where the property is located and the length of the legal description of the property, the publishing and posting fees vary.Who Pays For the Foreclosure? If the borrower reinstates the loan, or enters into a Forbearance Agreement, the foreclosure fees, costs and expenses are collected from the borrower. The lender(s) is/are otherwise responsible for the payment of all foreclosure fees, costs and expenses.

Predatory Lending–  Predatory” is a term used in lending contracts. Lenders following predatory lending practices target vulnerable consumers like women or those who do not qualify for conventional loans. Predatory lending has one of the following characteristics:

 The target group will be mainly the elderly or those with very low income. The cost or loan terms at closing are not what you initially agreed to. Aggressive sales tactics. Repeated refinancing options over short periods of time enabling the lender to collect additional/penalty fees. This strips the homeowners’ equity from their homes. The lending will not be in tune with the borrower’s ability to repay. The lender’s focus will be foreclosure. The borrower is blind to many underlying truths. There may be a lot of misrepresentations on the nature of loan, the amount of payment. The transaction will be packed with high fees which will be hidden from the borrower’s eyes. The aggressive sales tactics trick borrowers, mostly the uninformed groups, into accepting unfair loan terms. The federal remedies available to victims of predatory lending are: the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA), which is a 1994 addition to TILA, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), the Fair Housing Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act.

An attorney may make a special appearance to protect the interests of a potential client but before a fee has been paid or arranged because the attorney has not committed to represent the client in all future matters.”

Stop Date – The date of the last payment on a note.  It may be fully amortized or there may be a balloon payment.  Also referred to as Call Date.

Storage – Placing a number in a regi8ster or memory unit of the calculator for later recall and use.

Statute of Limitations– is a law which sets the maximum period which one can wait before filing a lawsuit, depending on the type of case or claim. The periods vary by state and by type of claim. Federal statutes set the limitations for federal lawsuits. If the lawsuit or claim is not filed before the statutory deadline, the right to sue or make a claim is lost forever.

Straight Note – A note having no payments during its term, with a balloon payment at the end.  It may have either simple or compound interest.

Stipulation– is an agreement made by parties or by their attorneys in a judicial proceeding before the court. Stipulations are often made on procedural matters. Stipulations are also sometimes made regarding factual matters not in dispute in order to save time required in producing evidence in court. Some stipulations are oral, but are often required to be put in writing, signed and filed with the court. Stipulations save time and promote judicial efficiency.

Sua Sponte– is a Latin term meaning “of one’s own accord.” It refers to when the court addresses an issue that has not been presented for consideration by the litigants. A common situation is when the court dismisses an action, for example by determining that jurisdiction is not proper even though both parties have agreed to appear in the court.

Subject Matter Jurisdiction– is the authority of a court to hear the type of case brought before it. It is jurisdiction over the type of claim brought by the plaintiff. For example, a small claims court only has subject matter jurisdiction of claims up to a certain dollar amount. Federal courts have jurisdiction over claims involving federal laws.

Submortgage– is an agreement in which a mortgage lender uses a mortgage held by him/her as collateral for his/her own loan. The original lender uses a borrower’s property rather than his/her own property for getting loan for his or her personal use.

Subpoena– is an order directed to an individual commanding him to appear in court on a certain day to testify or produce documents in a pending lawsuit. The power to subpoena a person is granted officers of the court, such as clerks of courts, attorneys and judges. A person may be subpoenaed to appear in court or any designated location to provide testimony for trial or deposition or produce documents or other evidence. A subpoena which requests items be brought with the person is called a “subpoena duces tecum.

Substitute Service– is service of legal papers on someone other than the named party when the named party is unable to be served personally. A court will generally allow substituted service when it is proven that all reasonable efforts in the circumstances have been made to effect personal service: and an alternate method of substituted service is proposed that will likely result in the matter coming to the attention of the party sought to be served. The order for substituted service may include instructions for service on relative, service by ordinary mail, postage pre-paid and where appropriate, registered mail, addressed to the party to be served at the last known address, or other manners of service.

Summary Judgment– is a decision made on the basis of statements and evidence presented in the legal pleadings and documents filed, without a trial. It is used when there is no dispute as to the facts of the case, and one party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Summary judgment is properly granted when the evidence in support of the moving party establishes that there is no genuine issue of material fact to be tried. A material fact is one which tends to prove or disprove an element of the claim. The motion for summary judgment may be brought by any party to the case and supported by declarations under oath, excerpts from depositions which are under oath, admissions of fact and other discovery, as well as case law and other legal authority, that argue that there are no triable or unresolved issues of fact and that the settled facts require a summary judgment for the moving party. If the motion for summary judgment is denied, the case proceeds in the court system until settled or concluded after trial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAIkfmTsgww  

Tax Deed– Transfers the ownership of the property to the person who pays the deliquient or back property taxes due on the property.

Temporary Injunction– is a court order prohibiting an action by a party to a lawsuit until there has been a trial or other court action. The purpose of a temporary injunction is to maintain the status quo and prevent irreparable damage or preserve the subject matter of the litigation until the trial is over. After the trial the court may issue a permanent injunction or dissolve the temporary injunction.

Tenancy By The Entirety– has some characteristics different than other joint tenancies, such as the inability of one joint tenant to sever the ownership and differences in tax treatment. It is similar to joint tenancy because when a spouse dies the surviving spouse takes the entire estate in fee simple. Unlike joint tenancy, there is no unilateral right to division of property. Divisions can me made only in a divorce action or by mutual agreement. A major advantage of this type of tenancy is that the creditors of an individual spouse cannot reach the entireties property.

Tenants in Common– hold title to real or personal property so that each has an “undivided interest” in the property and all have an equal right to use the property. Tenants in common each own a portion of the property, which may be unequal, but have the right to possess the entire property. There is no “right of survivorship” if one of the tenants in common dies, and each interest may be separately sold, mortgaged or willed to another. A tenancy in common interest is distinguished from a joint tenancy interest, which passes automatically to the survivor. Upon the death of a tenant in common there must be a court supervised administration of the estate of the deceased to transfer the interest in the property.

Term – The length or duration of time a loan runs.  Example – A 5-year term.

Terms – The main feature of a loan: principal amount, interest rate, payment schedule, and due date.

Title Examination– is a close examination of all public records that affect the title to the real estate you are purchasing. The search involves reviewing past deeds, wills, and trusts to make sure the title has passed correctly to each new owner. The examiner tries to verify that all prior mortgages, judgments, and other liens have been paid in full. Defective title refers to a title to real property which is invalid because a claimed prior holder of the title did not have title, or there is an inaccurate description of the property, or some other “cloud” over it, which may or may not be learned from reading the deed. To avoid a defective title problem, a purchaser will often research the chain of title. Chain of title refers to the history of passing of title ownership to real property from the present owner back to the original owner. A record of title documents may be maintained by a registry office or civil law notary. Chains of title include notations of deeds, judgments of distribution from estates, certificates of death of a joint tenant, foreclosures, judgments of quiet title, and other recorded transfers of title to real property. Before purchasing property, the purchaser will usually hire a title companies or abstractors to search out the chain of title and provide a report so that a purchaser will be assured the title is clear of any claims. In many real estate transactions, insurance companies issue title insurance based upon the chain of title to the property when it is transferred.

Title Guaranty/Insurance– is also referred to as title insurance. Title insurance is a policy issued by an insurance company guaranteeing that the title to a parcel of real property is clear of any claims or liens and properly in the name of the title owner and that the owner has the right to sell or otherwise transfer the property  to another. The insurance company will pay the damages to the new title holder or secured lender or take steps to correct the problem if a problem with the property ownership is later discovered, such as an incorrect boundary description. Title insurance covers problems that did not show up during the title search or were missed by the examiner and errors in public records. Title insurance does not cover defects that occur after you purchase the property. Policies often exclude problems having to do with easements, mineral and air rights, and liens. Title insurance policies are paid in-full with a one-time fee which is usually part of closing costs. Payment is usually made by the buyer, unless the state requires the seller to purchase title insurance or the seller agrees to pay for it.

Tranche– One of a set of classes or risk maturities which comprise a multiple-class security, such  as a CMO or REMIC.

Transcript– is an official recording of a legal proceeding. It may be the transcript of a proceeding in court or out-of-court proceeding, such as a deposition. A transcript is usually prepared by a court reporter and copies of the transcript are typically available to be purchased by the parties, usually on a per-page cost basis.

Treasury Bond– A negotiable, coupon-bearing debt obligation issued by the U.S. government and backed by its full faith and credit, having a maturity of more than 7 years. Interest is paid semi-annually. Treasury bonds are exempt from state and local taxes. These securities have the longest maturity of any bond issued by the U.S. Treasury, from 10 to 30 years. The 30-year bond is also called the “long bond.” Denominations range from $1000 to $1 million. Treasury bonds pay interest every 6 months at a fixed coupon rate. These bonds are not callable, but some older Treasury bonds available on the secondary market are callable within five years of the maturity date. also called U.S. Treasury bond or T-bond.

Tri-Merge Credit Report– a document showing your credit history as reported by the three major credit reporting agencies.

Triple Damages– Triple (treble) damages are a tripling of an award in a lawsuit against a defendant who is subject to punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded when a defendant’s conduct was malicious, or in reckless disregard of plaintiff’s rights. Punitive damages are designed to deter such wrongful conduct by the defendant in the future, rather than compensate the plaintiff for a particular loss or injury. Such damages are an exception to the rule that damages are to compensate not to punish. Punitive damages are often awarded in cases of fraudulent acts by the defendant.

Trust Deed – Or Deed of Trust – is the written document which transfers title (ownership) or an interest in real property to another person. A trustee’s deed is a deed to be executed by a person serving as a trustee in their appointed capacity. A trustee’s deed is often used, for example, by a trustee in bankruptcy to sell real property of the debtor. The deed must describe the real property, name the party transferring the property (grantor), the party receiving the property (grantee) and be signed and notarized by the grantor. To complete the transfer (conveyance) the deed must be recorded in the office of the County Recorder or Recorder of Deeds. There are two basic types of deeds: a warranty deed, which guarantees that the grantor owns title, and the quitclaim deed, which transfers only that interest in the real property which the grantor actually has. The quitclaim is often used among family members or from one joint owner to the other when there is little question about existing ownership, or just to clear the title. A written document for the transfer of land or other real property from one person to another. A quitclaim deed conveys only such rights as the grantor has. A warranty deed conveys specifically described rights which together comprise good title.

Trustee – One who holds property in trust for another to secure the performance of an obligation.  The person who manages a trust, the trustee, has a legal duty to manage the trust’s assets in the best interests of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. Typical trustee duties include managing rental properties, investing funds or paying income to the beneficiary. An example of a trustee would be a title company or attorney.

Trustee in Bankruptcy– is a person appointed by the United States Department of Justice or by the creditors involved in a bankruptcy case. Under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, the trustee duties are gathering the debtor’s non-exempt property, managing the funds from the sale of those assets, paying expenses and distributing the balance to the owed creditors. The trustee is responsible for receiving the debtor’s monthly payments and proportionally distributing those funds to the bankrupt’s creditors. The Bankruptcy Trustee acts on behalf of the debtor to guarantee that both the creditors’ and the debtor’s interests are maintained in accordance with the bankruptcy laws. The trustee in bankruptcy is often required to act as a negotiator between the two parties.

Trustor – The person who conveys property in trust.  One who deeds his property to a trustee to be held as security until he has performed under the terms of a deed of trust.

Truth in Lending Laws – Legislation that pertains to fair dealing and full disclosure in making new loans.  It does not apply to the sale of existing notes. Also known as TILA. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmdttNrwa2c

Unclean Hands Doctrine- The clean hands doctrine is a rule of law that someone bringing a lawsuit or motion and asking the court for equitable relief must be innocent of wrongdoing or unfair conduct relating to the subject matter of his/her claim. It is an affirmative defense that the defendant may claim the plaintiff has “unclean hands”. However, this defense may not be used to put in issue conduct of the plaintiff unrelated to plaintiff’s claim. Therefore, plaintiff’s unrelated corrupt actions and general immoral character would be irrelevant. The defendant must show that plaintiff misled the defendant or has done something wrong regarding the matter under consideration. The wrongful conduct may be of a legal or moral nature, as long as it relates to the matter in issue. Robo-Signing is a good example of “unclean hands”

Uncontested– means not disputed or that all issues are agreed upon by both the parties. When a law suit is not actively defended by the responding party it is referred to as uncontested.

Usury– is a civil or criminal violation involving charging more than the maximum interest rate allowed by law. The rate of interest legally allowed is governed by state statutes. If a court finds that the rate of interest on a loan is usurious, the interest due becomes void and only the principal of the loan needs to be repaid.

Vacate– In the context of a court order or decision, vacate means to overrule or void. A decision may be vacated for error, however, the error must be significant enough that it affected the outcome. In the context of landlord-tenant law, vacate means to leave the premises, either voluntarily or involuntarily. A landlord generally may not evict a tenant from a rental unit for any reason, other than for nonpayment, unless he or she has served the tenant with a valid written notice to vacate. Local laws, which vary, govern the notice requirements for a landlord seeking a tenant’s vacancy.

Verified Petition– is a formal written request to a court for an order of the court (1) under oath taken before a notary public or other officer authorized to take affidavits and to administer oaths or (2) under a declaration stating in substance “I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct” and further stating the date and place of execution.  Verification, in the legal context, refers to a declaration under oath or upon penalty of perjury that a statement or pleading is true. The verification is located at the end of a document. False information given in a verified legal pleading is subject to penalties for perjury.

Voluntary Dismissal– refers to the termination of a suit at the request of the plaintiff in a suit. The plaintiff is the party who initially filed a law suit with the court. In a voluntary dismissal, the plaintiff voluntarily withdraws the action or claim it brought before the court. Voluntary dismissal procedure is discussed under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 41(a). Voluntary dismissal may be made by the plaintiff alone or by both the plaintiff and defendant jointly making a stipulation for the dismissal. The plaintiff can make a voluntary dismissal of a suit only before the defendant makes any formal court action. If the defendant has made a formal court action, the plaintiff can dismiss the suit only if the defendant signs an agreement with the plaintiff to dismiss the case or by seeking a court order for the dismissal. The plaintiff may bring the suit once again to the court unless the order for dismissal denies it in cases where a court order was sought for the dismissal. A voluntary dismissal again in that case will mean that the plaintiff shall loose their right to bring a same action again to court.

Voir Dire– is a Latin term meaning “to see or speak”. Voir dire is a legal procedure conducted before trial in which the attorneys and the judge question of prospective jurors to determine if any juror is biased and/or cannot deal with the issues fairly, or if there is cause not to allow a juror to serve. Some of the reasons a juror might not decide a case fairly include knowledge of the facts, acquaintanceship with parties, witnesses or attorneys, occupation which might lead to bias; prejudice against the death penalty, or previous experiences such as having been sued in a similar case.

Unconscionable– in legal terms refers to  a contract or bargain which is so unfair to a party that no reasonable or informed person would agree to it. In a suit for breach of contract, a court will not enforce an unconscionable contract. The court in such a case will determine that to enforce the contract would be grossly unfair to one of the parties based upon their being misled, lacking information or signing under duress or misunderstanding, often due to the acts of the person seeking enforcement.

Uneven Payments – The payments of a loan vary from time to time, they are said to be “uneven” payments.  Example – $100/month the first year, then $200/month the second year, and then $300/month thereafter.  See IRR.

Unmarketable Note – A note which has such soft terms that it cannot be sold for cash.  It might be used in trade as part of the down payment on real estate however.

Unsecured Loan – An unsecured note or personal note and is not backed up by collateral.  It is secured only by the maker’s written promise to pay.  No specific security has been pledged to back up the promise to pay.  Credit card debt and medical expenses are examples.

Unsecured Note – See Unsecured Loan.

Usury – There are “usury” laws, which specify the maximum rate private parties can charge each other on loans.  Above that rate, it is “usury” and the loan would be “usurious.”  This involves stiff legal penalties.  There is absolutely no limit as to how much yield a person can get when they buy a note at discount, however.

Value – What one party is willing to pay for something.  There are as many values for something as there are parties considering owning it.  When there is widespread agreement of value, we have a market value (generally agreed -upon price such as the price of gasoline).  On the other hand, notes have a less well-defined market.  Therefore negotiation has a large part in determining value or price.

WAC – Weighted Average Coupon – this formula is used to weigh the average yield on a portfolio of two or more notes.  To calculate WAC, multiple each note’s coupon (interest) rate by its individual remaining balance.  That gives you the approximate existing yield for a package of notes with varied interest rates.

WAMWeighted Average Maturity – Allows you to calculate the overall maturity rate of a note portfolio, reflecting a truer measure of where the weight falls on a time line.  More accurate than an average maturity, calculation when dealing with many notes, or where you have the bigger notes for longer terms and a couple of smaller notes on real short terms.  A simple average would be extremely distorted in bias toward the low side in remaining months to maturity.

Walking Backwards – A note whose payments are less than Interest Only.  This means the amount owed increases with time.  See also Negative Amortization, Straight Note.

Without Recourse – The way of endorsing a note to an assignee.  This protects the assignor from any further liability on the sale, even in the event the Maker fails to pay on the note.  This is the way to sell a note to protect yourself.  See also Recourse.

Wrap-Around Contract – A Land Contract that wraps around earlier existing financing.  See Wrap-Around mortgage.

Wrap-Around Mortgage – A larger Mortgage that “wraps around” a smaller senior lien.  The debtor pays to the holder of the “Wrap-Around” and the holder of the “Wrap” pays on the included senior lien.

Yield – In a financial context, it is the annual rate of return on an investment, expressed as a percentage. It may be calculated according to various methods. For bonds and notes, it may be calculated with the coupon rate divided by the market price. For securities, it is the annual dividends divided by the purchase price. However, these methods do not factor in capital gains, The true rate of return on investment on a note bought at discount, taking into account the actual amount invested and the remaining payments and their timing.  The yield is often far greater than the interest rate specified in the note itself when the note is bought at discount.

THE UNOFFICIAL MERS WEBSITE

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO

MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC.  (MERSCORP)

MERS, a creation of the mortgage banking industry, has effectively destroyed the institution of private property in America. Ironically, MERS was created to facilitate quick and easy and cheap securitization of mortgages — what are called mortgage-backed securities. In fact, what it did was to eliminate any backing of the securities by mortgages. Of the total securitized asset universe, $7 trillion are (supposedly) backed by residential mortgages. That would create the largest single transfer of wealth in the history of mankind.  However, MERS helped to delink the securities from the mortgages. At best, they are unsecured debt — there is no property backing the securities. What this means is that foreclosure is not permitted. As I have said before, it is likely that most or even all foreclosures occurring in the US are illegal seizures of property — home thefts. We are talking about 100,000 completed home thefts per month, with another 250,000 new foreclosures started to steal homes every month. Projections are that 13 million homes will have been “foreclosed” (read: stolen) by 2012.

Worse, from the perspective of the banks, they’ve got to take back all the fraudulent MBSs, most of which are toxic.

In what follows I want to present the most favorable case for the mortgage industry. That is to say, I will ignore fraud and criminal conspiracies. Let us look at the current predicament as if it resulted from a series of monumental errors. With that in mind, what is the best-case scenario?

First a caveat: I have relied on my perusal of reported evidence, personal observations, plus  discussions with various attorneys in the related field, Wall Street investment consultants and a social scientist’s convincing argument that the securitizations of mortgages resulted in securities that are not backed by mortgages.

With that caveat, let us work through the problems now facing the banks.

1. A valid “mortgage” requires a (“wet signature”) note and a security instrument; these must be kept together, and any subsequent transfer of lien rights to the security instrument must be recorded at the appropriate public office. The mortgage note must be properly indorsed each time the mortgage is transferred. In the era of securitized mortgages this can be a dozen times or more. If ever presented for foreclosure, endorsements should demonstrate a clear chain of title, from origination through to foreclosure; and this should match the records at the public office.

2. MERS intended to provide an electronic registry of all mortgages. By appointing a “vice president” in every financial firm, it believed that all transfers of lien rights among these firms were “in house”. Hence it operated on the belief that no subsequent public recording was necessary, and no further endorsement of the mortgage note was necessary for in-house transfers of the payment intangible as it kept a record of transfers of the mortgage. It claimed to be a nominee of these firms (purported to hold the mortgage) but also to be the holder of the mortgages including the “Unidentified Indorsees In Blank” — mortgages that were never properly endorsed over to purchasers. We know, however, that MERS recommended that mortgage servicers retain notes, so MERS‘s claim to be the holder rests on its claim that appointed VPs are employees. But these employees are not an agent/employee of the “Unidentified Indorsee in Blank”, nor are they paid by MERS or in any way supervised by MERS.

3. This practice is in violation of numerous laws. Property law requires filing sales in the public record. Notes must be affixed (permanently) to the security instrument — a mortgage without the note has been ruled a “nullity” by the Supreme Court. MERS’s recommended business practice (with the servicer retaining the note) would make the mortgages a “nullity”. A complete chain of title is required to foreclose on property — every sale of a mortgage must be endorsed over to the purchaser, and properly recorded. Without this, it is illegal to foreclose on property — no matter how many payments the homeowner has missed.

4. However, if the notes can be found and if MERS can provide records, it is possible that the mortgages can be made valid (“proved up”) for purposes of collecting upon the indebtedness, but foreclosure would not be possible without a valid continuous perfected mortgage showing a chain of title from origination through to the current party trying to enforce the mortgage note. Any break in the chain of endorsements along with any break in the chain of title renders the Power of Sale clause in the security instrument to be a nullity and therefore no party can foreclose on the real property. So long as there is no fraud affecting the mortgage note, then rights to enforce the indebtedness can be further negotiated. If there is no break in the chain, when fraud is shown affecting the security instrument (such as robo-signers, etc), this does not affect the rights to enforce the mortgage note — but such fraud will affect the validity of the security instrument perhaps making foreclosure impossible. Fraud affecting the mortgage note would affect the right to foreclose.

5. If the notes cannot be found and a Lost Note Affidavit cannot reestablish the indebtedness, then foreclosure is not possible and collecting of the indebtedness is also not possible. Homeowners still can be sued for collection of owed moneys upon a “proved up” note or lost note affidavit but a current perfected lien is required to foreclose.

6. However since the mortgage-backed securities are governed by PSAs (pooling and service agreements), the practices above make the securities unsecured debt and there is no solution. The securities are no good. (This would be a Representation & Warrant violation as the MBSs stated that a secured indebtedness was to be purchased, but since the Trustees of the securitization would not have the notes, the securities cannot be “secured”.)

What does all this mean? In plain simple language, the banks are royally screwed. They cannot foreclose on the properties. Holders of the “mortgage-backed” securities can turn them back to the banks because they are actually unsecured debt. In previous pieces I have also explained why MERS’s recommended practice also violates US tax code — so back taxes are owed. And we know that the mortgages stuffed into the securities did not meet the “reps” of the PSAs.

So, in short, banks have got to take the whole lot of toxic waste securities back. Trillions of dollars worth. There is no cooking of the books that will turn this blackened toast back to bread.

RULE 1

MEMBERSHIP

Section 1.                                                                    MERSCORP, Inc. (“MERS”) shall make the services of its mortgage

electronic registration system (the “MERS® System”) available to any Member of MERS. A Member is defined as an organization or natural person who has signed a Membership Agreement and is not more than 60 days past due as to the payment of any fees due and owing to MERS.

Section 2.                                                                  Actions with respect to approval or disapproval of applications for

membership shall be taken on behalf of MERS by such persons as may from time to time be designated by the Board of Directors of MERS. Subject to Section 3 of this Rule, no applicant shall be approved unless it meets each of the standards of financial condition, operational capability and character defined below:

(a) If the applicant anticipates registering transactions on the MERS® System, the applicant has demonstrated to the satisfaction of MERS that it has adequate personnel capable of registering transactions on the MERS® System with necessary promptness and accuracy, that such personnel shall complete the computer-based training program designated by MERS, and that the applicant has internal security procedures in place to conform to any condition and requirement which MERS reasonably deems necessary for its protection and the protection of other Members:

 

(b) MERS has received no information which, in the sole discretion of MERS, would adversely reflect on the applicant, or any person associated with the applicant as defined in Section 3 below, to such extent that access of the applicant to the MERS® System should be denied, and any such applicant may be deemed not to meet the qualifications set forth in this paragraph only if:

(i)      MERS shall have reasonable grounds to believe that the applicant, or any person associated with the applicant, has been or is responsible for (A) fraud, fraudulent acts or breach of fiduciary duty, (B) making a misstatement of a material fact or omitting to state a material fact to MERS in connection with its application to become a Member, or thereafter while a Member, or (C) the violation of such statutes, rules and regulations applicable to the applicant.

(ii)    the applicant, or any person associated with the applicant, has been convicted prior to the filing of its application to become a Member, or at any time thereafter while a Member, of any crime, felony or misdemeanor which involves the purchase, sale or pledge of a mortgage loan or any interest therein or arose out of conduct of the business of funding, acquiring, lending on the security of, or servicing mortgage loans (or any business ancillary or related to any of the foregoing), or involves robbery, larceny, embezzlement, fraudulent conversion, forgery or misappropriation of funds or other property, or other dishonest acts; or

 

(iii) the applicant has been, or while a Member is, prohibited from transacting business with one or more of the following: (A) Fannie Mae, (B) Freddie Mac, (C) Ginnie Mae, (D) the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or (E) the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; provided, however, that such prohibition shall not be the sole basis for denial of membership.

(c) Eligible organizations and natural persons seeking to become Members shall make application on such form as MERS shall from time to time prescribe. In connection with its application, an applicant shall submit its audited financial statements for its two most recent fiscal years. MERS shall review the application to verify that the applicant satisfies all of the standards for membership, and in connection therewith the applicant shall make available to MERS such books and records and shall provide such other information as MERS shall reasonably request for such purpose. Failure of an applicant to cooperate in providing requested books, records, and information shall be grounds for denial of the application for membership.

Section 3.                                                            MERS may approve the application of any applicant, either

unconditionally or on an appropriate temporary or other conditional basis, if MERS in its sole discretion determines that any standard specified in this Rule, as applied to such applicant, or any person associated with such applicant, is unduly or disproportionately severe or that the conduct of such applicant or person associated with such applicant has been such as not to make it against the interest of MERS, the existing Members, and the public to approve such application. MERS shall notify each applicant of the action taken with respect to its application and the reasons therefore. For purposes of this Rule, the term “person associated with” when applied to any person or entity shall mean (i) any partner, senior officer, director or controlling person of such

 

person or entity or (ii) any officer or employee of such person or entity who has, or shall have, access to the MERS® System.

Section 4.                                          Notwithstanding the foregoing, MERS may decline to accept the

application of any applicant upon a determination by MERS that the MERS® System does not have adequate space, data processing capacity or other operational capability at that time to permit the inclusion of additional Members without impairing the ability of the MERS® System to provide services for existing Members; provided, however, that applicants whose applications are denied solely pursuant to this section shall be approved as promptly as the capabilities of the MERS® System permit, in the reasonable judgment of MERS, in the order in which their applications were filed with MERS or in such other order as may be determined by MERS from time to time in its reasonable judgment.

Section 5.                                              An applicant whose application to become a Member has been approved

by MERS shall be considered a Member after signing and delivering to MERS a Member Agreement as approved by the Board of Directors of MERS and paying the initial MERS membership fee.

Section 6.                                                               Each Member shall immediately notify MERS if at any time it fails to

meet any of the membership criteria specified in this Rule.

Section 7. Any Member may withdraw its membership from MERS by giving 90 days written notice to the President or Secretary of the Corporation. Such withdrawal shall be effective

on the ninetieth day after receipt at which time all rights and obligations of the withdrawing Member shall cease, except any obligation of such Member to pay fees or assessments assessed prior to withdrawal to the extent such obligation has not been fulfilled and except for any conditions the Board of Directors may establish for the de-registration of mortgages from MERS, including fees to defray the costs of such deregistration.

(a)          Any Member that sells, transfers, or otherwise disposes of all or substantially all of its assets to any entity that is not a member of MERS, shall be treated as having withdrawn from membership in MERS as of the effective time of such disposition of assets or combination with such entity unless the acquiring entity signs a Membership Agreement with MERS and as such shall be bound by the Rules of Membership and Procedures of MERS.

(b)         If any Member that merges or otherwise combines with any other entity and such other entity is the surviving entity and is a non-Member of MERS, then the Member Agreement entered into by the Member shall remain in full force and effect as to the non-Member entity unless the surviving non-Member withdraws from membership or is removed in accordance with the Rules of Membership or Procedures.

(c)Members have an affirmative obligation to notify MERS in writing in the event of (i) any merger or combination with, or acquisition of, another member or (ii) merger, combination or acquisition by another entity.

Members acknowledge and agree that the Member’s Organization Identification Number (Org ID) and each Mortgage Identification Number (MIN) associated with that Org ID are the property of MERS and the use of such Org ID and MINs are subject to the terms and conditions of these Rules and the other Governing Documents for membership.

(d)   If a Member sells the contractual rights to service a loan registered on the MERS® System to another Member, then the selling Member shall reflect such transfer on the MERS® System in accordance with MERS rules and procedures and a Seasoned Servicing Transfer Fee in the amount specified in the MERS Fee Schedule in effect at the time the transfer is effective shall be due to MERS for each loan transferred, provided that the transfer date is more than 270 days from the Note Date for that loan. If (i) a Member initiates a servicing transfer transaction on the MERS® System between two Org IDs issued to that Member or (ii) a Member initiates a servicing transfer transaction on the MERS® System to another Member who is affiliated with that Member, then such transfer transaction shall be subject to a Intracompany Transfer Fee for each loan transferred in the amount specified in the MERS Fee Schedule in effect at the time the transfer is effective, provided that the transfer date is more than 270 days from the Note Date for that loan and further provided that the affiliate relationship between the two Org Ids is shown on the MERS® System (i.e., referred to as a Parent/Child relationship in the MERS Procedures).

Section 8.                                                   A Member may change its Membership Profile on the MERS® System at

any time. Each Member shall designate one individual within its organization as its contact person for all of such Member’s dealings with MERS. It is the Member’s responsibility to update the MERS® System if the contact person changes.

 

RULE 2

REGISTRATION ON THE MERS® SYSTEM

Section 1.                                                    MERS, in its sole discretion, shall determine the type and level of access

to the MERS® System permitted to each Member and the types of transactions that such Member may register on the MERS® System. No Member may register or attempt to register any transaction not authorized under the Rules of Membership or the Procedures.

Section 2.                                           Subject to Section 1 above, each Member may register any mortgage loan

on the MERS® System in accordance with the Procedures.

Section 3.                                                      Each Member shall promptly, or as soon as practicable, register on the

MERS® System, in accordance with the Rules of Membership and the Procedures, any and all of the following transactions to which such Member is a party which involve a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System until such time as the mortgage loan is deactivated from the MERS® System:

(a)    the pledge of any mortgage loan or security interest therein and the corresponding release of such security interests;

(b)   the pledge of any servicing rights or security interest therein and the corresponding release of such servicing rights or security interests;

 

(c)    the transfer of beneficial ownership of a mortgage loan by a Member to a Member;

(d)   the transfer of beneficial ownership of a mortgage loan by a non-Member to a Member;

(e)    the transfer of beneficial ownership of a mortgage loan by a Member to a non-Member;

(f)     the transfer of servicing rights with respect to a mortgage loan by a Member to a Member;

(g)    the registration of servicing rights with respect to a mortgage loan from a non-Member to a Member;

(h)   the transfer of servicing rights with respect to a mortgage loan from a Member to a non-Member (requiring deactivation);

(i)      the initiation of foreclosure of any mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System;

(j)     the release of a lien with respect to a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System;

 

(k) the creation of a sub-servicing relationship with respect to a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System; and

(l)   any renewal, extension or modification of a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System that involves the recording of a new security instrument and does not merely change the rate, principal balance or term.

    Section 4.                  (a)                                                                          The transfer to a non-Member of servicing rights with respect to a

mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System shall require the deactivation of such mortgage loan from the MERS® System in accordance with these Rules and the Procedures. Upon the withdrawal or removal of a Member, all mortgage loans for which such Member acts as servicer shall be deactivated from the MERS® System, provided, however, that the mortgage loans shall remain registered with MERS if the substitute servicer is a Member and all MERS fees relating to the servicing transfer to the substitute servicer are paid. The transfer to a non-Member of a beneficial interest in a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System shall not require the de-registration of such mortgage loan from the MERS® System unless: (i) the servicer is a non-Member of MERS or (ii) such non-Member beneficial owner shall require deactivation.

   (b)                                                             As long as there are no contrary instructions, when the beneficial

ownership of a mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System is vested in a non-Member,
MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. shall at all times comply with the
instructions of the Member shown on the MERS® System as the servicer of such mortgage loan

 

with respect to transactions relating to such mortgage loan. Such Member shall indemnify and hold harmless MERS, and any employee, director, officer or affiliate of MERS, for any and all liability incurred as a result of compliance by MERS with instructions given by such Member on behalf of the non-Member beneficial owner.

Section 5.                          (a)                                                                          Each Member, at its own expense, shall cause Mortgage Electronic

Registration Systems, Inc., to appear in the appropriate public records as the mortgagee of record with respect to each mortgage loan that the Member registers on the MERS® System. Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of MERS created for the purpose of serving as the mortgagee of record in the appropriate public records. The Member shall monitor the public records to verify that it has complied with the preceding sentence and shall maintain an adequate quality assurance program to ensure that its verification procedures are effective. The Member hereby warrants to MERS that either (i) an appropriate mortgage, or deed of trust, or other such instrument as may be required under applicable state law, naming Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as mortgagee, or (ii) an appropriate assignment of mortgage, or assignment of deed of trust, or other such instrument as may be required under applicable state law, naming Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as mortgagee, has been or as soon as practicable shall be, properly prepared and delivered to the appropriate recording office and the Member shall promptly register on the MERS® System the date on which such instrument was delivered. As soon as practicable, the Member shall register on the MERS® System the specific recordation information provided by the custodian of public records which evidences that Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. is mortgagee of record with respect to such mortgage loan. Upon the Member’s becoming aware of any discrepancy between

 

the information shown on the MERS® System and the information in the public records, the Member shall promptly correct the information on the MERS® System.

(b)      At or prior to the time a Member registers a mortgage loan on the MERS® System, such Member shall provide evidence reasonably satisfactory to MERS demonstrating that Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. is, or as soon as practicable shall be, properly recorded as mortgagee of record in the appropriate public records with respect to such mortgage loan.

(c)       Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. shall not act as mortgagee of record for the purpose of procuring borrowers for the Member or making mortgage loans on behalf of the Member.

(d)      Reference herein to “mortgage(s)” shall include deed(s) of trust, and any other form of security instrument under applicable state law. References herein to “mortgagee of record” shall include the named beneficiary under a deed of trust in those jurisdictions where deeds of trust are used to secure loans, and any similar status as used in connection with any other form of security instrument under applicable state law.

Section 6.                                                                MERS shall at all times comply with the instructions of the holder of

mortgage loan promissory notes. In the absence of contrary instructions from the beneficial
owner, MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. may rely on instructions from
the servicer shown on the MERS® System in accordance with these Rules and the Procedures

 

with respect to transfers of beneficial ownership, transfers of servicing rights, and releases of security interests applicable to such mortgage loan. The beneficial owner shall give any such contrary instructions to MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. in writing and they may rely on such instructions until receipt of further written instructions from the beneficial owner.

Section 7.                                               Each Member shall review for accuracy and completeness all information

shown on the MERS® System with respect to mortgage loans and related transactions registered by such Member, and promptly update any incorrect information.

Section 8.                                                                 Within ten (10) business days of receiving notice from the Member

servicing the loan that the mortgage loan has been paid in full, MERS shall give notice to all Members shown on the MERS® System as having interests in such mortgage loan. The Member servicing the mortgage loan shall be responsible, at its own expense, to:

(a)        take, or cause to be taken, appropriate action, including delivery to the appropriate recording office of an instrument of satisfaction or release (which may be signed by a certifying officer of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc.), to extinguish the lien of such mortgage in the proper manner within the applicable state imposed time frames, and register on the MERS® System the date of such action, or

(b)        notify MERS that, in fact, the mortgage loan has not been paid in full. If MERS is notified that a lien release has not been executed in compliance with applicable state

 

imposed time frames, and the Member fails to take such action or give MERS notice that the mortgage loan has not been paid in full, then MERS reserves the right to release such mortgage. Such Member, upon demand, shall reimburse Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. for its out-of-pocket costs in connection with release of the mortgage, including any penalties for failure to release the mortgage or take other action in a timely manner, and shall pay an administrative fee determined by Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., and

(c) indemnify MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. with respect to any liability which may arise as a result of the failure of such Member to take such action or give MERS such notice in a timely and accurate manner. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, such indemnification shall extend to circumstances in which a mortgage is released by Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., but the mortgage loan has not been paid in full, or in which such Member wrongfully refuses to authorize Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. to release the mortgage.

 

RULE 3

OBLIGATIONS OF MERS

Section 1.                                                               MERS shall within two (2) business days forward to the appropriate

Member or Members, in the form prescribed by and otherwise in accordance with the Procedures, all properly identified notices, payments, and other correspondence received by MERS with respect to mortgage loans registered on the MERS® System for which Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. serves as mortgagee of record.

Section 2.                                                             MERS shall provide to Members certain standard reports concerning

information contained on the MERS® System, as specified in the Procedures, and such other reports as MERS may determine from time to time.

Section 3.                         (a)                                                                            Upon request from the Member, Mortgage Electronic Registration

Systems, Inc. shall promptly furnish to the Member, in accordance with the Procedures, a corporate resolution designating one or more officers of such Member, selected by such Member, as “certifying officers” of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. to permit such Member (i) to release the lien of any mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System to such Member, (ii) assign the lien of any mortgage naming MERS as the mortgagee when the Member is also the current promissory note-holder, or if the mortgage is registered on the MERS® System, is shown to be registered to the Member, (iii) to foreclose upon the property securing any mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System to such Member, (iv) to take any and all actions necessary to protect the interest of the Member or the beneficial owner of a mortgage loan in any bankruptcy

 

proceeding regarding a loan registered on the MERS® System that is shown to be registered to the Member, (v) to take such actions as may be necessary to fulfill such Member’s servicing obligations to the beneficial owner of such mortgage loans (including mortgage loans that are removed from the MERS® System as a result of the transfer thereof to a non-Member), (vi) to take action and execute all documents necessary to refinance, amend or modify any mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System to such Member, (vii) endorse checks made payable to MERS to the Member that are received by the Member in payment on any mortgage loan registered on the MERS® System that is shown to be registered to the Member. In instances where Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. designates an officer of a Member as a certifying officer of MERS for the limited purposes described above, such Member shall indemnify MERS and any of its employees, directors, officers, agents or affiliates against all loss, liability and expenses which they may sustain as a result of any and all actions taken by such certifying officer.

(b)              Upon request by Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. , the Member shall deliver to Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. a corporate resolution naming the Corporate Secretary of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as a “certifying officer” of the Member solely for the purpose of installing Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as mortgagee of record on mortgage loans which have been registered on the MERS® System by the Member.

(c)                                   At the request of the beneficial owner of a mortgage loan, or any designee thereof as shown on the MERS® System, Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. shall provide to such beneficial owner or designee a recordable assignment for such mortgage loan to

 

another party designated by the beneficial owner or designee; provided, however, that such beneficial owner or designee shall warrant to Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. that such assignment shall be promptly recorded. Requests for recordable assignments may be made only for purposes of deactivating a mortgage loan from the MERS® System. The deactivation of a mortgage loan for any reason shall be subject to the payment of all applicable fees and expenses, including, without limitation, the costs of preparing and recording the assignment. All such applicable fees and expenses shall be included in a fee schedule.

Section 4.                                       Unless otherwise specifically stated herein, any action required or

permitted to be taken by MERS or Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. pursuant to these Rules shall be taken on behalf of MERS by such persons as may from time to time be designated by the respective Boards of Directors of MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc.

 

RULE 4

RULE CHANGES

     Section 1.                                          (a) MERS shall notify in writing all Members of any proposed changes to

the Rules of Membership, and shall provide a copy of such proposed changes to all Members no fewer than ninety (90) days prior to the proposed implementation date of such changes.

(b)      Members may submit to MERS for its consideration their comments with respect to any such proposal, and such comments shall be reviewed by MERS and filed with the records kept by MERS. Notwithstanding the receipt of any such comments, the Board of Directors of MERS, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to amend, add to or repeal any Rule or part thereof after the expiration of such ninety (90) day comment period, so long as such amendment is not contrary to the Certificate of Incorporation of MERS.

(c)       Each Member shall be bound by any amendment to the Rules with respect to any transaction occurring subsequent to the time such amendment takes effect as fully as though such amendment were now a part of the Rules; provided, however, that no such amendment shall affect the Member’s right to withdraw from MERS in accordance with the procedures set forth in these Rules before such amendment or change becomes effective.

(d)                                 MERS shall provide a ninety (90) day written notice for any changes to the MERS Membership Terms and Conditions.

 

RULE 5

FEES

Section 1.                          (a)                                                                                                 Each Member shall pay such fees, charges and assessments to

MERS for membership, registrations, transfers, and other transactions on the MERS® System and other services rendered by MERS as shall be determined from time to time by MERS in its sole discretion, and specified in a fees schedule promulgated by MERS which may change from time to time.

(b)                  MERS shall provide all Members with at least thirty (30) days advance written
notice of changes to the fees schedule with the effective date of the new fees.

(c)                   Transaction fees for the transfer of servicing between MERS Members (including
Intra-company Transfers) shall be payable by the transferor. If the transferor fails to pay such transaction fees due to bankruptcy, or because the transferor is no longer in business or cannot otherwise be located or contacted, MERS will invoice the transferee and the immediate payment of those transaction fees shall be the responsibility of the transferee. Any monies received by MERS from the bankruptcy estate of the transferor shall be applied as a credit to the transferee’s MERS account. MERS has invoked this provision because the transferee has received the benefit of the service provided by MERS and is in the best position to protect itself by holding back a portion of the purchase price when purchasing the corresponding loans. The transferee will also be responsible for the cost if the servicing transfer transactions have not been initiated on the MERS® System, and the transferor cannot initiate the transactions themselves due to the circumstances listed in the preceding sentence and the transferee requests such transaction to be initiated by MERS. If the transferee fails to pay any transaction fees by the invoice due date,

 

MERS may suspend the transferee’s access to the MERS® System pending the payment in full by the transferee of such transaction fees.

(d)                                  If a Member registers a mortgage loan on the MERS® System pursuant to the

Rules of Membership and Procedures, and that Member subsequently transfers the servicing rights to that mortgage loan to another Member without first paying the registration fee to MERS pursuant to Rule 5, Section 1(a), and the transferor fails to pay such transaction fees due to bankruptcy, or because the transferor is no longer in business or cannot otherwise be located or contacted, MERS will invoice the transferee and the immediate payment of those transaction fees shall be the responsibility of the transferee. Any monies received by MERS from the bankruptcy estate of the transferor shall be applied as a credit to the transferee’s MERS account. MERS has invoked this provision because the transferee has received the benefit of the service provided by MERS and is in the best position to protect itself by holding back a portion of the purchase price when purchasing the corresponding loans. If the transferor has not registered the mortgage loan on the MERS® System and is unable to register the mortgage loan due to bankruptcy, or because the transferor is no longer in business or cannot otherwise be located or contacted, then the transferee must register the mortgage loan and pay the corresponding registration fee pursuant to Rule 5, Section 1(a). If the transferee fails to pay any transaction fees by the invoice due date, MERS may suspend the transferee’s access to the MERS® System pending the payment in full of such transaction fees.

Section 2.                                                                 MERS shall have the authority to charge a Member for any unusual

expenses caused directly or indirectly by such Member, or incurred at its request, including,
without limitation, the cost of producing records pursuant to a court order or other legal process

 

in any litigation or other legal proceeding to which such Member is a party or in which such records relating to such Member are so required to be produced, whether such production is required at the instance of such Member or of any other person, provided however, that MERS shall give the Member written notice of such Court Order or legal process in advance of producing the records to enable the Member to pursue its legal rights to refuse the request.

Section 3.                                        Each Member shall pay interest on any delinquent fee payments at the rate

set from time to time by MERS. Said interest rate shall be specified in the fees schedule.

Section 4.                                                Whenever a Member receives notice of a foreclosure proceeding, service

of process on a lawsuit naming MERS as a defendant, or a code violation notice, that is forwarded to the Member by MERS on a property where MERS holds a lien or held a lien for that Member, the Member has an affirmative duty to MERS to review the document and respond accordingly. This includes retaining counsel to defend MERS against any possibility of a monetary judgment against MERS. If the lawsuit or document involves a foreclosure action with MERS holding a lien on behalf of the Member, and the Member determines not to contest the foreclosure or answer the lawsuit, the Member should inform the foreclosing party to send subsequent documents in the lawsuit or foreclosure to MERS c/o of the Member’s address.

If MERS determines that MERS receipt of mail involving a foreclosure proceeding, lawsuit or code violation resulted from a violation of any of the MERS Rules or Procedures, then MERS shall be entitled to charge the Member a fee of $12.00 for each filing or document in the proceeding or for each piece of mail received related to the code violation that MERS forwards to the Member beyond the initial service of process or notification that MERS received on behalf of that Member.

 

RULE 6

PROCEDURES

Section 1. (a) MERS shall prescribe from time to time reasonable Procedures with respect to the business and operation of MERS and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. and the execution of transactions on the MERS® System. Each Member shall be bound by such Procedures and any amendment thereto in the same manner as it is bound by the provisions of the By-Laws and these Rules.

(b) MERS shall give Members sixty (60) days notice prior to implementation of any amendment to the Procedures.

 

RULE 7

more violations of these Rules or the Procedures or for errors, delays or other conduct detrimental to the operation of MERS or Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., the MERS® System or other Members, including, without limitation, a Member’s failure to provide adequate training and supervision to its employees to enable proper use of the MERS® System, by imposing any of the following:

(d)         censure; or

(e)          any other fitting requirements that may be determined by MERS.

Section 2.                                                   MERS shall give written notice to the applicable Member of the terms of

any such violation and possible sanction, which shall include a brief description of the basis for the imposition of the sanction. The Member shall then have fifteen (15) days from the date of receipt of the notice to provide a written response and have an opportunity to be heard. At the expiration of the fifteen (15) days, if MERS determines that a breach has occurred and that sanctions may be imposed, the Member shall be given thirty (30) days to cure the breach. If the breach is not cured within the thirty (30) days, MERS may impose such sanctions on the

 

Member. If the Member does not cure the breach during the thirty (30) day curing period, then upon the expiration of the curing period, MERS shall notify any other member of MERS for whom the breaching Member acts as an authorized servicer or sub-servicer of mortgage loans registered on the MERS® System.

Section 3. If the nature of the breach is the same or similar to a breach by the Member that has occurred within the last year, there may not be a curing period.

 

RULE 8
FORECLOSURE

Section 1.                         (a)                                                                              With respect to each mortgage loan for which Mortgage Electronic

Registration Systems, Inc. is the mortgagee of record, the beneficial owner of such mortgage loan or its servicer shall determine whether foreclosure proceedings with respect to such mortgage loan shall be conducted in the name of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., the name of the servicer, or the name of a different party to be designated by the beneficial owner.

(b)                  The Member servicing a mortgage loan registered on the MERS®
System shall be responsible for processing foreclosures in accordance with the applicable agreements between such Member and the beneficial owner of such mortgage loan.

(c)                     In the State of Florida, the authority to conduct foreclosures in the
name of MERS granted to a Member’s Certifying Officers under Paragraph Three of the Member’s MERS Corporate Resolution is revoked. Effective June 1, 2006, the Member shall be sanctioned $10,000.00 per violation for commencing a foreclosure in Florida in the name of MERS.

(d)                  In the event that the beneficial owner or its designated servicer determines that foreclosure proceedings shall be conducted in the name of a party other than Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., the servicer designated on the MERS® System shall cause to be made an assignment of the mortgage from Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. to the person designated by the beneficial owner, and such beneficial owner shall pay all recording costs in connection therewith.

Section 2:          (a)                   If a Member chooses to conduct foreclosures in the

name of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., the note must be endorsed in blank and in possession of one of the Member’s MERS certifying officers. If the investor so allows, then MERS can be designated as the note-holder.

 

(i)                    The Member shall not plead MERS as the note-owner in any foreclosure document; including but not limited to, the foreclosure complaint.

(ii)                   The Member shall not plead MERS as a co-plaintiff in a foreclosure action.

(iii)       If the note is lost or cannot be located, the Member shall not commence a foreclosure action in the name of MERS, but rather must assign the mortgage out of MERS.

(b)      In non-judicial foreclosure states, if the Member chooses to foreclose in MERS name under the power of sale provision in the security instrument and is not seeking a deficiency judgment, then the note does not need to be in the possession of the Member’s MERS Certifying Officer when commencing the foreclosure action; provided, however, that under no circumstances may the Member allege that the note is in their possession unless it so possesses.

(c)       If the Member pleads MERS as the note-owner or as a co-plaintiff or commences a foreclosure in the name of MERS when the note is lost or cannot be located, it shall be considered a violation of the MERS Membership Rules and MERS may dismiss such foreclosure action. Effective June 1, 2006, the Member shall be sanctioned $1,000.00 for the first violation and $5,000.00 for each subsequent violation of this Rule.

(d)      For all foreclosures conducted in the name of MERS, the member shall take all reasonable and necessary steps to avoid having Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. take title to the applicable property that is the subject of a mortgage loan. Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. shall not be obligated to take title to any property that is the subject of a mortgage loan; provided, however, that if the Member so requests, Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. may take title at the conclusion of the foreclosure sale upon prior written consent to the Member from Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. If title is taken in the name of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., the Member

 

shall take all necessary and reasonable steps to remove Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. from title as soon as possible.

(e) If title is put into Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc.’s name and there is a violation of state, county or city codes or any other applicable regulation; including, but not limited to, non-payment of tax bills, the Member shall be responsible to promptly take all necessary action to prevent fines or judgments from being entered against MERS.

MERS and the Member shall use a reasonable degree of care consistent with the Standards for Safeguarding Customer Information (16 C.F.R. parts 314) (the “Safeguards Rule”) to preserve the confidentiality of any such information, and to take all reasonable action by instruction, agreement or otherwise with its directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents to satisfy its obligation with respect to confidentiality, non-disclosure and limitation of use of any such information.

described meet the Objectives specified in the Safeguards Rule. MERS agrees to maintain controls and procedures designed to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information stored on the MERS® System that are no less stringent than those described in the current version of the MERS Integration Handbook. MERS further agrees that any changes or modifications to such controls and procedures will also be designed to meet the Objectives specified in the Safeguards Rule. Each Member shall inform MERS in writing whenever the Member believes that the controls and procedures designed to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information stored on the MERS® System fail to meet the Objectives specified in the Safeguards Rule. MERS agrees the Member (or a mutually agreeable third party representative) will be given access to monitor that MERS has satisfied the provisions of this paragraph, including access to any audits, summaries of test results or other equivalent evaluations of the controls and procedures designed to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information stored on the MERS® System.

FORECLOSURE TOOL-TRUTH IN LENDING ACT

Right of Rescission

Regulation Z: The Right-of-Rescission

The right-of-rescission rules are technical, and the consequences of noncompliance can be very costly to the Banks.  Take the time to review the right of rescission rules for closed-end credit.

What is the right of rescission?

The right of rescission is a consumer protection law found within the Truth in Lending Act

Truth In Lending Act — Regulation Z

The Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Title I of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, is aimed at promoting the informed use of consumer credit by requiring disclosures about its terms and costs. In general, this regulation applies to each individual or business that offers or extends credit when the credit is offered or extended to consumers; the credit is subject to a finance charge or is payable by a written agreement in more than four installments; the credit is primarily for personal, family or household purposes; and the loan balance equals or exceeds $25,000.00 or is secured by an interest in real property or a dwelling.

TILA is intended to enable the customer to compare the cost of cash versus credit transaction and the difference in the cost of credit among different lenders. The regulation also requires a maximum interest rate to be stated in variable rate contracts secured by the borrower’s dwelling, imposes limitations on home equity plans that are subject to the requirements of certain sections of the Act and requires a maximum interest that may apply during the term of a mortgage loan. TILA also establishes disclosure standards for advertisements that refer to certain credit terms.

In addition to financial disclosure, TILA provides consumers with substantive rights in connection with certain types of credit transactions to which it relates, including a right of rescission in certain real estate lending transactions, regulation of certain credit card practices and a means for fair and timely resolution of credit billing disputes. This discussion will be limited to those provisions of TILA that relate specifically to the mortgage lending process, including:

1. Early and Final Regulation Z Disclosure Requirements

2. Disclosure Requirements for ARM Loans

3. Right of Rescission

4. Advertising Disclosure Requirements

Early and Final Regulation Z Disclosure Requirements:

TILA requires lenders to make certain disclosures on loans subject to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) within three business days after their receipt of a written application. This early disclosure statement is partially based on the initial information provided by the consumer. A final disclosure statement is provided at the time of loan closing. The disclosure is required to be in a specific format and include the following information:

  • Name and address of creditor
  • Amount financed
  • Itemization of amount financed (optional, if Good Faith Estimate is provided)
  • Finance charge
  • Annual percentage rate (APR)
  • Variable rate information
  • Payment schedule
  • Total of payments
  • Demand feature
  • Total sales price
  • Prepayment policy
  • Late payment policy
  • Security interest
  • Insurance requirements
  • Certain security interest charges
  • Contract reference
  • Assumption policy
  • Required deposit information

Disclosure Requirements for ARM Loans:

If the annual percentage rate on a loan secured by the consumer’s principal dwelling may increase after consummation and the term of the loan exceeds one year, TILA requires additional adjustable rate mortgage disclosures to be provided, including:

  • The booklet titled Consumer Handbook on Adjustable Rate Mortgages, published by the Board and the Federal Home Loan Bank Board or a suitable substitute.
  • A loan program disclosure for each variable-rate program in which the consumer expresses an interest. The loan program disclosure shall contain the necessary information as prescribed by Regulation Z.
  • TILA requires servicers to provide subsequent disclosure to consumers on variable rate transactions in each month an interest rate adjustment takes place.

Right of Rescission:

In a credit transaction in which a security interest is or will be retained or acquired in a consumer’s principal dwelling, each consumer whose ownership is or will be subject to the security interest has the right to rescind the transaction. Lenders are required to deliver two copies of the notice of the right to rescind and one copy of the disclosure statement to each consumer entitled to rescind. The notice must be on a separate document that identifies the rescission period on the transaction and must clearly and conspicuously disclose the retention or acquisition of a security interest in the consumer’s principal dwelling; the consumer’s right to rescind the transaction; and how the consumer may exercise the right to rescind with a form for that purpose, designating the address of the lender’s place of business.

In order to exercise the right to rescind, the consumer must notify the creditor of the rescission by mail, telegram or other means of communication. Notice is considered given when mailed, filed for telegraphic transmission or sent by other means, when delivered to the lender’s designated place of business. The consumer may exercise the right to rescind until midnight of the third business day following consummation of the transaction; delivery of the notice of right to rescind; or delivery of all material disclosures, whichever occurs last. When more than one consumer in a transaction has the right to rescind, the exercise of the right by one consumer shall be effective for all consumers.

When a consumer rescinds a transaction, the security interest giving rise to the right of rescission becomes void and the consumer will no longer be liable for any amount, including any finance charge. Within 20 calendar days after receipt of a notice of rescission, the lender is required to return any money or property that was given to anyone in connection with the transaction and must take any action necessary to reflect the termination of the security interest. If the lender has not delivered any money or property, the consumer may retain possession until the lender has complied with the above.

The consumer may modify or waive the right to rescind if the consumer determines that the extension of credit is needed to meet a bona fide personal financial emergency. To modify or waive the right, the consumer must give the lender a dated written statement that describes the emergency, specifically modifies or waives the right to rescind and bears the signature of all of the consumers entitled to rescind. Printed forms for this purpose are prohibited.

Advertising Disclosure Requirements:

If a lender advertises directly to a consumer, TILA requires the advertisement to disclose the credit terms and rate in a certain manner. If an advertisement for credit states specific credit terms, it may state only those terms that actually are or will be arranged or offered by the lender. If an advertisement states a rate of finance charge, it may state the rate as an “annual percentage rate” (APR) using that term. If the annual percentage rate may be increased after consummation the advertisement must state that fact. The advertisement may not state any other rate, except that a simple annual rate or periodic rate that is applied to an unpaid balance may be stated in conjunction with, but not more conspicuously than, the annual percentage rate.

The closed-end rescission rules discussed in this article are found in Title 12 CFR Regulation Z 226.23

The open-end rescission rules discussed in this article are found in Title 12 CFR Regulation Z 226.15

Who is able to rescind a loan?

The right of rescission doesn’t apply just to borrowers.  All consumers who have an ownership interest in the property have the right to rescind.

While other parts of Regulation Z typically focus on the borrowers, this is one area where you need to look beyond the applicants, and identify any and all owners of the home being pledged on the transaction. Often times this will require looking at title work and making note of all fee owners of the property.

What does the right of rescission require of lenders?

The right of rescission requires lenders to provide certain “material disclosures” and multiple copies of the right of rescission notice to EACH owner of the property.  Following proper disclosures, lenders must wait at least three business days (until you are reasonably satisfied that the owners have not rescinded) before disbursing loan proceeds.

When does the three-day rescission time clock begin to tick?

The three-day right of rescission period begins once the material disclosures and notice have been given, and lasts three full business days. Business days are defined by Regulation Z to include all calendar days except Sundays and federal holidays. Saturday IS considered a business day for rescission purposes, regardless of whether your offices are open.

In order to properly complete the Notice of Right to Rescind form, you need to know how to calculate the rescission period.  Consider the following example.

Assume a closing is set for Thursday, November 15th, 2001, and that all material disclosures and notices are provided to the parties at that time. The rescission period would run:

Friday, November 16, 2010;

Saturday, November. 17, 2010, and

Monday, November 19, 2010.

Sunday is not counted since it is not considered a business day. The rescission period would end at midnight on November 19, 2010.

When may a borrower waive the right of rescission?

Regulation Z allows borrowers to waive their rescission rights, but this exception only applies in very limited circumstances. The law is protective of the right of rescission, and you should be too.

Borrowers may waive their rescission rights and receive their loan proceeds immediately only if they have what is called a “bona fide personal financial emergency.” This means a financial emergency of the magnitude that waiting an additional three days will be personally or financially devastating to the borrower.  It might include situations involving natural disasters such as flooding, or a medical emergency that requires immediate funds. When this type of situation does arise, the borrower must provide a written explanation of his or her circumstances to the financial institution. This is not a document that you should draft for the borrower.

Waiving the right of rescission is not a common practice, mostly because doing it wrong can backfire and create a rescindable loan, causing all kinds of problems down the road.

What happens once the rescission period is over?

After the right-of-rescission period has expired, make sure you feel reasonably certain that the consumer has not rescinded before you disburse the loan proceeds.  There are some risks in disbursing after the third day.  For example, the law allows consumers to exercise their rescission rights by mail, and a rescission is effective when mailed.  Thus, a rescission mailed on the third day after closing is effective even though the lender may not receive it until the fourth or fifth day after the closing. Because of this potential timing problem, Regulation Z suggests that lenders take extra precautions to ensure that the loan has not been rescinded.

To avoid further delay of the loan proceeds, you may want to obtain a confirmation statement from all the owners stating that they have not exercised their rescission rights. Such a written confirmation provides written documentation that the transaction has not been rescinded. Notice of rescission form contains this confirmation language, which can be an effective way to resolve the rescission issue quickly.

(Note, however, that owners should not sign this confirmation until after the three day period is over.  Otherwise, it may look like they have improperly waived their rescission rights.)

What are the consequences of noncompliance?

There are serious consequences for failing to follow the right-of-rescission rules.  First, until a lender provides the material disclosures and the proper Notice of Right to Rescind, the three-business day rescission period does not start to run, and the transaction remains rescindable for up to three years.  And once a consumer rescinds a transaction, the security interest in the property becomes void and you must reimburse the consumer for all of the finance charges collected over the life of the loan.

Keep in mind that most rescission errors are alleged in response to collection actions or other litigation initiated by the lender.  Because of this, it is important to regularly review your institution’s right of rescission compliance program generally, as well as to verify compliance on the individual level before initiating action against any one borrower.

HERE IS WHAT TO DO:

  1. Examine Mortgage documents for TILA violations (up to $2,000.00 in fines for each violation may be available)
  2. Write rescission letter to Lender and Agents
  3. Send rescission letter to Lender and Agents certified mail
  4. Wait 20 business days for Lender and Agents to respond
  5. Receive Lenders response (if any; usually the Lender defaults)
  6. Write default letter to Lender and Agents
  7. Send default letter to Lender and Agents certified mail
  8. Write “Qualified Written Request
  9. Send  “Qualified Written Request” letter to Lender and Agents certified mail
  10. Wait 60 business days
  11. File complaint (lawsuit)
  12. Lender may respond by sending many (300) pages of fluff. (stall tactics)
  13.  In some cases Lender will make offer to settle
  14. You negotiate to void Lenders security interest in the property and demand payment of violations fines and free and clear title. (all of these damages may not be available in your case)
  15. Lender agrees
  16. Security interest in the property is voided and you collect violation fines and Lender gives you free and clear title

THE PERFECT FORECLOSURE DEFENSE

FOLLOW THE MONEY-THE ABSOLUTE FORECLOSURE DEFENSE

As any detective or investigator will tell you, “follow the money”, it will always lead to solve the crime. The crime we are talking about here is foreclosure fraud (Fraudclosure) . The main crime consists of many smaller crimes such as perjury, forgery, false credentials, improper paperwork, etc. However, the common factor in all these crimes is the fact that they leave a paper trail. The trail cannot be undone or hidden because the documents are either in the Public Records or Court filing, and several other locations not commonly known.

Everyone always looks at the “Robo-Signer” aspect of foreclosure defense, which is obvious and well established now. We know who they are and were, but that took us years to uncover. The banks don’t have the proper paperwork, and the law firms under investigation aren’t going to continue the practice they got away with for years, so the next logical question is “ What are the banks going to do now?” One simple answer is get all new robo-signers, it will take us years to uncover this, and if they are less careless and cavalier this time around, they will change their M.O.. One thing they can never change is the Pooling and Service agreements, certified accounting and sworn reporting to the IRS and the SEC. Insofar  as SEC filings can be found at Edgar’s Database which contains all 8K & 10K filings necessary to be filed.

The documents you need to defend are contained within the accounting practices. All securitized loans must be registered and properly accounted for. No matter how the Banksters “cooked the books”, the money has to show up somewhere, you just need to know where to look. This also creates an excellent item for discovery and production purposes. The standards and requirements for this are extremely stringent and carefully monitored by the government. Without the ability to prove an equitable transfer, or best case scenario, satisfaction of the loan debt, Summary Judgment standards are not possible. In Bankruptcy Court, this creates the ideal adversarial proceeding.
