About me

If you obtained your mortgage between the years of 2001 and 2007 then there is a good chance it was securitized. If this is this case your loan note was likely sold on Wall Street resulting in the separation of the note and the deed. Real estate law says that if you separate the note from the deed then the security is rendered void. Resulting in an unenforceable security instrument. This leads to standing issues relating to your pending foreclosure. With the proper filings your foreclosure could be temporarily stopped, your loan audited for problems with your note and deed, and this could give the leverage to acheive a loan modification allowing you to stay in your home at an affordable rate. As an attorney, certified mortgage securitization auditor, and expert witness I work with attorneys/clients in every state all the time to keep homeowner's American dream alive. Good luck, however, remember that time is not on your side.
