Big words – pure Bullshit.
Here’s what one lawyer is peddeling in Southern Califirnia.
“Here is some info that we send out to brokers. Our fundamental principal under which we work is the “educated supposition” that a preponderance of real estate loans having been originated by the banking industry in the last several years were, at least in part, predatory in nature and fraught with myriad blatant illegalities, errors and omissions in their construction and execution. We find as well that many of the documents which purport to secure these alleged loans with ownership in your real estate, have been lost or destroyed in favor of creating the more convenient and legally protective electronic mortgage recording system (MERS): thereby rending certain of the documents largely unavailable and unenforceable under the law. Our primary contention is that a copy of a negotiable instrument is not a valid instrument. Irrespective of the production of such items as “Certified Copies” or “Affidavits of Lost Document”, a certified copy of a dollar-bill will obviously not buy you a dollar’s worth of anything: as well, an affidavit saying your dog ate your dollar-bill won’t buy anything either.
During the examination (forensic auditing) phase of your transaction, we generally discover that your “lender” never made you a “loan.” We find instead that your signature and averred obligation to pay was in fact sold for a large profit well before your “loan” documents were presented to you. We find that in fact no money was ever expended by your “lender” on your behalf: thereby inferring that your negotiable and highly valued signature did in effect retire your so-called mortgage obligation well before your payment-stream was established.
Since its inception, your alleged loan has most likely been sold and re-sold several times before it was purchase by a Wall Street stock brokerage and fractionalized to securitize international stock market purchases (mostly by foreign investors, who, at the time, had an exaggerated faith in the US tock and real estate market, but who long-since have accepted their losses). For the most part, these unfortunate folks have moved on and have no expectation of recompense of any kind. Ergo, one might ask: “So where does all the money go when I am evicted for non-payment and my bank sells the property for top dollar?” The answer lies with each party in the line succession: i.e., those who purchased, re-sold and fractionated your loan by including it in a multi-million (or billion) dollar bundle of other mortgages. Each party in the queue have long since been paid far more from their acquisition of your loan than they paid for it, and in effect will have lost virtually nothing as a result of a homeowner’s inability to pay.”
Ya just gotta wonder where teh State Bar is in shutting these types down. They are as bad as the banks that started this in the first place.
