MERS Granted Motion for Summary Judgment in Texas Court; Lien Reinstated

first_img  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / MERS Granted Motion for Summary Judgment in Texas Court; Lien Reinstated MERS Granted Motion for Summary Judgment in Texas Court; Lien Reinstated A district court in Collin County, Texas, granted a motion for summary judgment in the favor of MERSCORP Holdings on Wednesday, according to an announcement from MERS.The court also reinstated the MERS lien on the property, finding the lien to be “in full force and effect.” MERS was seeking to reinstate a lien which it claims was improperly extinguished by defendant Kingman Holdings in the case of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. v. Kingman Holdings, Inc. The lien was previously extinguished by Kingman in a quiet title action. MERS contended that their due process rights under both the Texas and U.S. Constitutions were violated when Kingman did not provide MERS, as record beneficiary of the deed of trust, with notice or make MERS a party to Kingman’s action that sought to extinguish the MERS lien.Presiding Judge Scott J. Becker voided the prior judgment that went in Kingman’s favor and reinstated the MERS lien, stating that the MERS deed of trust creates a “valid, subsisting, and enforceable lien” on the property, according to MERS. The judge also ruled that the MERS deed of trust is senior to any Kingman interest and he awarded MERS and MERSCORP Holdings with attorney’s fees and costs associated with prosecuting the case.”This ruling is consistent with case law in numerous states that has determined that MERS has a right to service of process.””This judgment once again confirms that as record mortgagee or beneficiary on security instruments MERS is entitled to notice of all proceedings affecting the real property encumbered by the MERS lien,” MERSCORP Holdings VP for Corporate Communications Janis Smith said. “This ruling is consistent with case law in numerous states that has determined that MERS has a right to service of process.”This is the third major court victory for MERS in the space of a month. In mid-August, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee Nashville Division dismissed a lawsuit that challenged MERS’ role in a deed of trust in Tennessee. In early August, MERS was awarded a victory inU.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which ruled that MERS was not duty-bound by the Pennsylvania recording statute to record all land conveyances.

What’s Wrong In Servicing?

first_img Tagged with: Servicing The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago In a recent three-day online discussion organized by the Urban Institute, industry experts deliberated on the question “Are mortgage servicing costs, complexities, and risks impeding lending?”Urban Institute Housing Finance Policy Center Codirector Alanna McCargo moderated the online event first asking if there are ways to reduce the costs of regulation in servicing without increasing risks to consumers and the housing market. Meg Burns, SVP of Mortgage Policy at Financial Services Roundtable said “Absolutely.”“Consumers do not derive any benefit whatsoever from the complex and inconsistent rules that were imposed over the course of the crisis,” said Burns. “Ironically, the various regulators who issued new policies all had the same goals in mind—to improve servicing practices and enhance the customer experience.”Burns said the regulations have lengthened the time that it takes to resolve delinquent loans, which increases costs and harms the people who are in need of help. David Battany, EVP of Capital Markets at Guild Mortgage agreed. According to Battany, consumer protection regulations need to be powerful, clear, and simple.“When regulations are unnecessarily complex, or intentionally vague, this needlessly creates uncertainty and bureaucracy, which leads to higher costs, all of which are passed onto the consumer and reduces access to credit, particularly for higher risk and harder to serve borrowers,” Battany said.The average cost to originate a loan is about $8,900, according to Battany, which is almost double what it was a few years ago. When borrowers sit down to look at their 100-page loan file, he wonders how many of those papers they actually look at and if the expensive work behind the scenes really adds value to them.“Most regulations [had] very good intentions. Most people would agree that the ability to repay and many servicing regulations created post crisis solved real issues and provide important consumer protections,” Battany said. “The issue lies in the unintended consequences of the people who in good faith wrote the details of the implementation of these regulations without having a full understanding of the complex business processes they were attempting to regulate.”Ted Tozer, former President of Ginnie Mae, said though the CFPB has one foreclosure timeline, an investor has a different one. In his opinion, the servicer should have only one timeline to comply with that doesn’t change based on the location of the property, the servicer’s regulator, or who owns the mortgage.“Servicers need a set of rules and expectations that are specific, standardized, and consistently enforced by regulators and investors,” said Tozer. “A servicer should not be put in a position where they have to decide whose rules they will violate.”This idea is consistent with the views presented in a recent white paper by the National Mortgage Servicers Association (NMSA), which looks to standardize key definitions, guidance, and best practices surrounding the preservation and maintenance of vacant and abandoned properties.“At the end of the day we have to remember the housing finance ecosystem is basically a zero sum game,” said Tozer. “What ever economic burdens are put on mortgage investors and servicers, those costs will be passed on to borrowers in higher credit costs or limited credit availability.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago To view the NMSA white paper, click here.To read the rest of the Urban Institute discussion, click here.

What’s the most expensive rental market? We’ll give you a hint: it’s in California.HomeUnion’s report breaks down the top 10 most and least expensive U.S. rental markets, spotlighting the annual rental for a single-family rental home, the average annual income, and the rent-to-income ratio. Chicago tops the list as the only American metro where typical renters spend less than 20 percent of their annual income on housing. HomeUnion reports an average annual SFR rent in Chicago as $19,956, against an average annual income of $102,180. That works out to a rent-to-income ratio of 19.5 percent.“With its low cost of living, relatively large housing inventory levels, and high affordability, Chicago is an excellent market for residents entering the renting pool,” said Steve Hovland, Director of Research for HomeUnion.The second metro on the list is Charlotte, North Carolina, with an average SFR rent of $15,792. “About one-quarter of the average income of a typical Charlotte resident goes to rental housing, making it appealing to millennials,” Hovland said.The rest of the top 10 most affordable single-family rental markets include Minneapolis, Minnesota; Detroit, Michigan; Atlanta, Georgia; St. Louis, Missouri; Raleigh, North Carolina; Houston, Texas; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Tampa, Florida.On the other end of the spectrum, Oakland, California tops the list of most expensive SFR markets, with an average annual SFR rent of $37,524, an average annual income of $73,284, and a rent-to-income ratio of 51.2 percent.Rounding out the rest of the most expensive top 10 metros are Cincinnati, Ohio; Salt Lake City, Utah; Orange County, California; Portland, Oregon; San Francisco, California; Washington, D.C.; Denver, Colorado; Cleveland, Ohio; and San Diego, California.Hovland explained, “Low affordability negatively impacts all renters in the Bay Area, Denver, Southern California, and Washington, D.C., because of strong local job market conditions, intense demand for rental properties, and high mortgage costs for owner-occupied housing.” He added that “A significant number of potential young renters are migrating out of Ohio to Chicago or booming western metros such as Denver, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles, leaving mostly low-wage earners to occupy rentals.”For more insights into the state of the single-family rental market, be sure to register for the 2018 Single-Family Rental Summit, scheduled for March 19-21 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The event will feature top subject matter experts and skilled SFR practitioners leading discussion panels and training sessions that will answer questions and offer viable solutions related to property acquisition and management, financing, strategies for small, mid-cap, and large investors, and new developments related to technology and professional services.

Recapping the Repeal of Outdated Legislation

first_img Stern & Eisenberg, a regional firm servicing New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and the District of Columbia. A recent decision from the Maryland Court Of Appeals overruled the decision of lower courts in the consolidated cases of Blackstone v. Sharma, Shanahan v. Marvastian, O’Sullivan v. Altenburg, and Goldberg v. Neviaser.The court ruled that “the legislative intent and history of the statute did not intend to force registration on foreign statutory trusts and remanded the case to the Circuit Courts to be reinstated and handled there consistent with the holding of the Court of Appeals.”Kevin Hildebeidel, Esq., Regional Managing Attorney for Non-judicial and Quasi-judicial States for Stern & Eisenberg, hosted a webinar covering the recent ruling over the ruling, and the effects it held over the industry. With this win, certain restrictive license requirements were ruled inapplicable to the mortgage industry and trusts.According to the presentation, what was decided was that the debt collection license requirements of MCALA don’t apply to the mortgage industry or to foreign statutory trusts holding mortgages. This decision, however, did not address any other consumer protection statutes, such as the Maryland Consumer Debt Collection Act (MCDCA) or the Maryland Consumer Protection Act (MCPA).The discussion included the context of the decision in relation to its initial creation and following amendments, an analysis of the decision and how it affected operators, the impact of the court’s newest decision on the portfolios of those operating within the affected area, and forward-looking issues, such as “all mortgage investors, servicers, and trustees will still be subject to requirements of MDCA, MCPA, FDCPA and all other consumer protection statutes even under the main opinion.”Click here to access a recording of the webinar to learn more about the ruling, or to listen in to the live question and answer portion.

The Bureau is proposing changes to certain open-end and closed-end provisions to provide examples of replacement indices for LIBOR indices that meet certain Regulation Z standards. The Bureau is also proposing changes to certain open-end provisions restricting index changes, requiring change-in-terms notices, and addressing how credit card rate reevaluation requirements apply. To assist understanding of the proposed revisions, the Bureau is releasing a Fast Facts high-level summary and an unofficial redline. Comments on the proposed rule are due August 4, 2020.Second, the Bureau has released additional companion FAQ guidance to address other LIBOR transition topics and regulatory questions under the existing rule. This guidance deals with issues related to general implementation considerations, and requirements for adjustable-rate mortgage servicing notices, adjustable-rate mortgage and HELOC origination disclosures, and requirements under AMTPA.Third, the Bureau has revised the CHARM Booklet to provide updates based on consumer testing and remove LIBOR-based rate examples.Additionally, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) have announced that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) have launched new websites that provide key resources for lenders and investors as the Enterprises transition away from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR).
