Default Question about mortage loans.

My question is when home mortgages loans were bundled together and sold to wall street firms which in turn sold them as investments to people all over the world did the deeds from all these mortages follow the investments or what happens to them.

When I look at the problems major lenders are having proving that they have the right to foreclose on homeowners it make me wonder if the people who purchased these investments have anything to really fall back when their their investments went bad.

Were the deeds included with these investments as security or what happened to them?

Thanks Jim Hill

There are two components to a mortgage; the promissory note and the deed of trust. It was the deed of trust that was transferred using MERS. The promissory note is where the chain of title is created. It requires the actual notarized signatures of buyer and seller to be on the note, every time the property is transferred to a new owner of the deed of trust. MERS was never set up to handle the promissory note. The deed of trust never was funded with the promissory note because the mortgage was going to be sliced and diced to investors.

With out the promissory note and a clear chain of title, a mortgage servicer cannot prove they have standing to represent to a court to execute the foreclosure according to the deed of trust.

The actual deeds from many mortages definitely did not follow the investments, because those MBA geniuses on Wall Street decided to slice the individual mortgages into many pieces when they were securitized and resold. Pieces of one mortgage are often split into various securities.

It sounds like in many cases the original mortgage documents cannot now be found, (maybe intentionally lost to cover their tracks on all those wonderful loans done in the past 6-7 years?)

I think you might be right but my next question is why would anyone purchase these types of investments for billions of dollars without some type of security being part of the deal just in case it went bad.

How would they ever recover any of their investment other then suing the wall street firms that sold it to them in the first place?

These wall street firms had to be wondering many of these same questions when they sold this junk to investors.

What did they do with all the paper work or did they also use the same company that the banks used?

Maybe I am wrong but the more I think about this whole mess I think we just might be at the tip of the ice berg.

Many investors right now won't touch a bank stock because of just what might be coming next and all the law sues for years to come.

BOA will be lucky if they survive this whole mess without their stock tanking below $5.00 dollars a share like Citi did.

Short sellers must be licking their chops right now looking at BOA

It was simply a scheme that legalized money laundering and responsbility laundering by a new name and process.

The top management knew what they were doing and why is was so great for them, the people below are just worker bees and most had no idea of the big picture.

I heard an interview just recently with a couple Wall Street guys while they were at a bar. According to their reasoning, we had no choice to bail them out - they were against the current admin, since they used money to bail them out. They we going on about how intelligent they are and more intellegent than most and that was why they kept their jobs, not because they were bailed out by the public (much of which has been repaid so far, by the way). The interviewer was trying to understand their logic, so they went on to explain. Evidently, both the fact that Wall Street had leverage over the rest of the government and economy and had to be bailed out, means they are smarter than the rest of us. Basically, each time they rip someone off, they believe it proves their IQ is higher, because they got the upper hand - I can easily see this as being representative of the Wall Street culture. It's like organized crime, with less morals and lower IQ.

It is the tip of the ice-berg, we have no idea. Bank lobbyists spent well over 1 million dollars a day to influence congress this summer. They want to tie a few strings to your back and make you serve them, just like some politicians.

current administration did not bail them out, TARP was Bush and Paulson. MSNBC has a ok documentary on GS and the bailout. It most be noted that Obama is also surrounded by GS former employees. I say national strike!!!!!!!

The way I see it is that you are totally correct; however, the Obama admin insisted they actually pay back the money and wanted to set up an escrow account funded by banks to prevent public bailouts in the future. I don't believe Bush would have been so stringent about getting paid back, because that would be argued as hurting the banks and jobs. The current admin took the baton from Bush and completed the process - Bush was propelled by economists to start the process and the fed and the current admin has been guided by economists.

However, the public has a very short memory and Wall Street is only working for their interests at the moment. They certainly don't feel good about being regulated, I mean actually regulated. It means less profits from ripping off the public - bad for business.

The best regulation is to let those with p*ss poor management fail and go out of biz. The bailouts prevented the market from correcting itself, what a shock that they still are being mis-managed...

Mortgage requirements change from state to state. In some states a Deed of trust makes forclosure easy in others a complicated court procedure is required before a sheriffs deed can be issued. Mortgages are not stock certificates that can be bought and sold in an instant, each transaction must follow a strict procedure.

It seems that the big banks forgot about that just as they forgot about local sales and reporting requirements. Three cheers for the MBA's and the mess that they have made of the real estate market.
