PODCAST: Helping homeowners How to support homeowners as they come out of forbearance. CUNA

PODCAST: Helping homeowners At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than four million homeowners—credit union members among them—needed mortgage assistance. While many have recovered, there is still a need to support homeowners as they come out of forbearance. Helping homeowners depends on exceptional member care and communication. It also means considering what other support can be offered and what process changes can be made to deliver optimal outcomes.

THERE IS NO CONFLICT BETWEEN ARTICLE 3 AND ARTICLE 9 OF UCC: THE COURTS ARE JUST PLAIN WRONG
CASE DECISIONS ARE NOT SCRIPTURE. But they are precedent and you can expect that once a decision is rendered by an appellate court in a specific jurisdiction all the lower courts in that jurisdiction will most likely follow the reasoning and application of the law in that appellate decision.

REVERSE “MORTGAGES” ARE SUBJECT TO SAME DEFENSES AS ANY OTHER HOMEOWNER TRANSACTION Living Lies

REVERSE “MORTGAGES” ARE SUBJECT TO SAME DEFENSES AS ANY OTHER HOMEOWNER TRANSACTION
I am getting a lot more inquiries about reverse mortgages in which Foreclosure is threatened. That’s far, there appears to be no difference in the challenges and offenses available to homeowner homeowners between what is ordinarily falsely described as a “conventional Loan” and a “reverse mortgage loan.” The goal of the finance side of these transactions is the same: the sale of securities.

STOP BLAMING JUDGES: Their position is wrong but NOT unreasonable Living Lies

STOP BLAMING JUDGES: Their position is wrong but NOT unreasonable
I have often been confronted with a situation in which there are reports of a judge that is bullying the lawyers or litigants. The result is that homeowners are blaming judges for entering rulings or judgments and cutting arguments short. And the perception is that the judges are part of some vast conspiracy to deny due process to homeowners.

If you don’t understand the job of being a judge, then you can’t possibly win Living Lies

If you don’t understand the job of being a judge, then you can’t possibly win
The bottom line is that if you start off with a hostile attitude toward the judge, the possibility of a successful result for anyone defending a case diminishes to practically zero. Likewise for the litigant who expects the judge to carry water for one party or the other. Judges don’t carry water. They merely watch it and weigh it. That is their job.

New mortgage refinance programs from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are expanding to reach more homeowners
For Stacey Foley, refinancing her mortgage was a no-brainer. After paying roughly 4.25% in interest on her existing home loan, refinancing at 3.25% with limited closing costs has saved her $200 monthly. “Two hundred dollars doesn’t sound like a lot of money, but over a year it is,” Foley said.

Discovery Aimed at Insurance Accounts Might Yield Beneficial Results for Homeowners Challenging the Rights to Administer, collect or Enforce
if the payment is directed to the company claiming to be a servicer on behalf of a non-existing creditor, the homeowner’s liability for the scheduled payment is not reduced. Like most foreclosure sales, the proceeds from insurance are used as free money or revenue by all of the participants in the fake process of servicing.

How Wall Street is Committing the Perfect Crime Living Lies

How Wall Street is Committing the Perfect Crime
Back in 2006 on TV, I said something like this: “Given the size and scope of this illegal enterprise, there probably are not enough available assets in the world to purchase and hide from public scrutiny. The banks will inevitably expand into fields in which they have no interest, just like lending. The only way they can hide their illicit gains is by laundering them through the purchase, sale, and trading of assets, some of which will be just as fictitious as the alleged loans they are allegedly creating.”

Want to allege fraud? Not so fast Living Lies

Want to allege fraud? Not so fast
Both homeowners and lawyers like to throw around the term “fraud upon the court.” But it actually ends up diminishing the credibility of both. There are several reasons why you should not allege fraud unless you have indisputable sold proof that the documents and/or oral arguments were filled with statements that were known to be false when they were made.

WASHINGTON, Nov 3 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve threw its weight back behind the drive for a full U.S. jobs recovery on Wednesday, restating its belief that current high inflation is "expected to be transitory" and, despite risks to that view, arguing that price pressures will ease and pave the way for stronger employment and economic growth in the months to come.

About that letter you receive from the company claimed to be your servicer: PennyMac Living Lies

About that letter you receive from the company claimed to be your servicer: PennyMac
People keep getting letters and they tend to treat the information as real simply because it is in writing. That is the nub of the Wall Street scheme — send out written communication and documents without regard to the truth and people will assume that the document or letter would not have been sent if at least someone didn’t think it was true.
