Foreclosure Workshop #61: Capital One v. Peck and Gilliam v. Bank of America — Unraveling the Ancient Mysteries Behind Contemporary “Standing” Disputes in Foreclosure Courts

For centuries, one of the most important yet confusing concepts in American Law has been that of the “standing” of a party to pursue claims and defenses in court.

Without “standing,” claims and defenses will be dismissed in court, which makes “standing” one of the most powerful weapons in foreclosure litigation especially.

Foreclosure defense concepts by themselves have traditionally remained confusing enough, as our listeners know, varying from jurisdiction to Continue reading

The Rise and Fall of Securitized Trusts: Eleven Future Strategies To Dismantle Them in Their Retreat

Your Host: Attorney Gary Victor Dubin
with
Co-Host:  Former Hawaii Governor John D. Waihee 

At first, securitized trusts received obedient kowtowing from the American Judiciary, unwittingly deceived by, if nothing else, their long impressive titles including in their names the names of otherwise past respected financial institutions supposedly acting as their trustees.

And when securitized trusts, starting with the mortgage crisis of 2008, began their unending wave of foreclosures, they did so exclusively as mortgagees, since state foreclosure laws have always been written to exclusively authorize foreclosures on traditional mortgages only and not in favor of the holders of promissory notes.

Foreclosure Workshop #57: LCP-Maui vs. Tucker — What Every Homeowner Facing Foreclosure Needs To Know About Deficiency Judgments

Your Host: Attorney Gary Victor Dubin
with
Co-Host:  Former Hawaii Governor John D. Waihee 

In most States, as one of the most vicious aspects of the foreclosure system, if the auction sale price is not enough to pay off the balance of a loan, the lender or its collection agency assignee is entitled to a deficiency money judgment.

Deficiency collection can then consist of aggressively garnishing wages, seizing bank accounts, and foreclosing on a borrower’s other real property if any, forcing many borrowers into bankruptcy, further increasing the emotional trauma and financial loss due to being foreclosed on.

Homeowners in growing numbers lately, even pro se, have suddenly been defeating summary judgment in foreclosure proceedings or securing appellate reversals of prior summary judgments remanded for trial.

As our listeners know, there are many foolproof ways of challenging the validity of default notices, general loan ledgers, and ownership of promissory notes at filing inception, which we have addressed on prior shows, one or more usually sufficient to defeat summary judgments once you know how easily it can be done, depending of course always on how knowledgeable your foreclosure Judge is.

Foreclosure Workshop #54: US Bank v. Arizumi — 15 Defects To Look For When Analyzing and Defeating a Foreclosing Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment
——————————-
The main event in any judicial foreclosure is the summary judgment hearing in which a foreclosing plaintiff attempts to convince the court that it should immediately prevail and your property should be sold at auction, since it argues there is no need for a trial as it owns your mortgage debt, you are in default, and it is entitled to foreclose.

By defeating summary judgment, the odds of saving one’s home improve greatly as a borrower can thereafter generally look forward to securing either finally an attractive loan modification, a significant discounted payoff, or in rare cases wiping out one’s mortgage debt entirely. Continue reading

———————
For too long most of our courts have cavalierly discriminated against homeowners by consciously or otherwise going out of their way to protect foreclosing plaintiffs, applying legal doctrines against mortgagors differently than in other areas of the law. Continue reading

America’s Homeowners’ SuperPAC Launched!

By Sydney Sullivan

wewilluniteDuring the weekly Sunday afternoon Foreclosure Hour broadcast, Honolulu attorney Gary Dubin and former Governor John Waihee announced the formation of the Homeowners’ SuperPAC.

“The time has come,” said Mr. Dubin, “where the voice of the American homeowner needs to be heard and the rights to live in their homes protected.”

In the United States, a political action committee (PAC) is a type of organization that pools campaign contributions from members and donates those funds to campaign for or against candidates, ballot initiatives, or legislation. Gov. Waihee and Mr. Dubin have designed a Homeowners’ Bill of Rights and plan to organize the Homeowners SuperPAC initiative in every state.
