Why Should you Attend:
This course is designed to assist banking professionals in understanding the civil litigation process as it relates to mortgage foreclosures, deficiency judgments, suits against borrowers and guarantors and other actions related to loan collection. Attendees will gain an understanding of our civil court system, how a case proceeds from start to finish, how to minimize delays in the process, the common defenses brought by borrowers and guarantors, how deficiency judgments are obtained and, more importantly, collected, the impact of bankruptcy on loan collection litigation and more! The focus is on commercial loans but bankers working with residential and consumer credits will also benefit as the majority of the concepts discussed are applicable there as well.
The Home Affordable Mortgage Program, or HAMP, "will never have the reach necessary to put an appreciable dent into the foreclosure process" - partly because it's doing a poor job monitoring how lenders are handling troubled mortgages. When the HAMP was launched two years ago, the administration said it would keep between 3 million and 4 million homes out of foreclosure. But the oversight panel said it now seems likely that HAMP will prevent only 700,000 homes from going into foreclosure nationwide - a fraction of the 8 million to 13 million foreclosures expected by 2012. before the recent robo-signing controversy, the lack of clarity around the foreclosure process had only created fear, uncertainty and doubt among buyers, leaving them to wonder, when, if ever, the millions of homes that are either delinquent or in foreclosure will hit the market," said Foreclosure Radar founder Sean O'Toole. "Now issues related to robo-signing and other foreclosure and lending practices have led to call into question the validity of some foreclosures creating fear among buyers that the purchase of their home may later be deemed invalid."
