  2. Litigation

      1. Mortgage Backed Bonds – bonds are not created equal
      2. Table Funding – illegal for a bank to NOT use its own money
      3. Originator – bank that originated the loan
      4. Sponsor/Seller – middle bank bought note from originator and sold it to depositor to package in the trust – most missed the closing date
      5. Depositor – bank that sold the Note to the investor
      6. Lack of Standing
        1. Injury – each time the note was illegal sold the equity in the home significantly decreased
        2. MERS – Mortgage Electronic Registry
          1. Every mortgage is supposed to registered on this system
          2. Intended during the 1990s to cut recording costs/fees for the banking industry; also helped hide chain of title from the public
          3. Approximately 65 million mortgages MERS is beneficiary or nominee
        3. Each time the NOTE was transferred by law there was supposed to be a duly signed assignment (from Originator to Sponsor/Seller to Depositor); this did not occur in most cases.

      2. Substitution of Trustees, Corporate Assignments, and Assignments are red flags for transfer problems
    2. Violation of UDAP [Fairness Doctrine]
  4. Waiver
    1. Contractual issue – bank has told HO to stop making payments to be considered for a modification; thus, the bank has waived any right to enforcement of the terms of the contract under the note; it gave that right up to enforce the contract by telling the home owner to stop making payments; homeowner relied on that waiver, stopped making payments for a modification, is denied modification, - bank cannot then come back and state it is entitled to enforce the payments
