Learn from the Foreclosure Mills Themselves: Dealing with Defects in Non-Judicial Foreclosure States

Dealing with Defects in Non-Judicial Foreclosure States

On Thursday, the Legal League 100 held a webinar with a focus on title defects and how they can disrupt the foreclosure process, titled “How to Lose Your Case Before It Starts-Title Defects.”

The webinar was provided free of charge the mortgage servicing industry and hosted by Jim Deloach, Senior Counsel at McCalla Raymer Liebert Pierce, LLC and Chairman of the Legal League 100 Education Subcommittee. The speakers, in addition to Deloach, were Caren Jacobs Castle of the Wolf Firm, Shaun Ramer of Sirote and Permutt, and Morgan Weinstein of Van Ness Law Firm.

For approximately 45 minutes, the experts covered multiple scenarios title defects could rear their ugly head. Topics covered included wrongful release of a lien, servicing transfers, correcting recording issues, and statute of limitation concerns.

A portion of the webinar cited case studies on hot topics specific to individual states, with the understanding that any of these issues could easily spread to neighboring states.

“We are pleased to be able to provide these type of educational opportunities for the industry,” said Legal League 100 Executive Director Derek Templeton. “Whether it be by conducting webinars, producing reports, or simply providing a forum for legal professionals to collaborate with their mortgage servicing partners at the Legal League 100 Servicer Summits, we look forward to further showcasing the expertise represented by our member firms.”

  1. Interesting webinar, but absolutely no help for most of us who are battling illegal foreclosures. These lawyers are proceeding on the notion that the foreclosing entity is the owner of the note, which in most cases of illegal foreclosures is not true. These vulture lawyers would not even go near the question of ownership of the note.

  2. Beauduke- good question- let us know how you make out- just call the title company and ask them point-blank.
    Don’t let them squirm out of answering.

  3. Why don’t we all submit a petition to the White House to stop illegal foreclosures by the crooked banks? President Trump can’t say no, if he has true intent to make America great.

  4. Evil f*cks now collaborating. They make me sick.

  5. White House Petition for Service Members, Veterans and Military Retirees

    Dear friends,
    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 99,999 signatures by April 23, 2017, the White House will review it and respond!
    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the White House to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the White House will issue an official response.
    You can view and sign the petition here:
    Here’s some more information about this petition:
    Initiate Legislation to put a permanent moratorium on the Foreclosure of Service Members, Veterans, and Military Retiree
    This legislation needs to be implemented because our Service Members, Veterans, and Military Retirees are being foreclosed upon at an alarming rate. The majority of these foreclosure are illegal. Another percentage of these foreclosures occur because there are quite a few ridiculous states that conduct Non-Judicial foreclosures, which is a huge issue in itself. We know that these illegal foreclosures are occurring because of the recent Department of Justice Case against the major banks, which found them to be conducting illegal foreclosures on our Service Members. Our Members have served and still serve this country honorably and should not have to face loosing their homes for any reason.

  7. How could we redress effectively a defect in the assignment of mortgage to stop a non-judicial foreclosure?

  8. If my loan docs state the “X” is the lender but the title company issues a policy to “Y”, wouldn’t that be proof that “Y” is the actual lender and not “X”? Also, if the the title company, as the closing agent, issued a policy to “Y” while stating in the closing docs that “X” is the lender, would they be commuting fraud?

    Give me a few days to get a some pressing matters out of the way, and then I’ll return to this thread with a comment for access, probably on the Tube.

  10. Is there any way to download this flash video or get a transcript?
