Until recently, the concept of a “foreclosure crisis” was
assumed to be limited to the subprime, high rate segment of the mortgage
market. As foreclosure actions multiplied exponentially in the last few
years for all types of mortgage products, a category of litigation that
once advanced through the court system discreetly, methodically and
largely unopposed has suddenly fallen under the microscope. Practices
that once went unquestioned are now being challenged. Many courts have
grown increasingly impatient with some mortgagees’ inability to
produce adequate documentation of their ownership of mortgage loans or
to correctly calculate loan balances. The New York State Legislature has
implemented numerous new procedures to attempt to insure that both
residential homeowners and their tenants feel less at a loss when a
foreclosure action is commenced.
This expert faculty will provide practitioners with the latest
instruction/tips on how to handle residential foreclosure actions.Program Topics
