It was a good day at my desk, if one has to work on Saturdays.
- I gave notice that one client was rescinding a $180,000 mortgage for Truth in Lending violations.
- I found three clients whose second deeds of trust can be eliminated as liens on homes because they are completely underwater.
- I sent out three Qualified Written Requests under RESPA to lenders whom I suspect have played games with the servicing on my client’s mortgages.
My conclusion about the mortgage meltdown is that there is not one universal approach to getting clients some breathing room on their mortgage debt, but there are a number of approaches that can lessen the pain borrowers are feeling, and raise the odds these people can keep their homes.
