If you thought this was a foreclosure crisis brought about by the Mortgage Meltdown, you would be wrong. If this were a foreclosure crisis only those in foreclosure would be the ones having problems. And only those loans in foreclosure would be the ones having title issues and “robo-signer” issues. I cannot say this loud enough: FORECLOSURE IS NOT THE PROBLEM. Homeowners not making payments is not the problem. “Freeing up” credit to stimulate lending is not the problem. If you didn’t get a subprime loan, and yours is a 30 year fixed, you are at risk of a clouded title almost as much as anyone in foreclosure. In fact, if you have refinanced or purchased your house from 2000 or later, you could easily have a defect in title. Since I am not a lawyer and can only give myself legal advice, I will only discuss my own case. And of course these are only my opinions based on my knowledge, education, training and research. Apparently my title company thinks my title is good. I know because somebody asked them and they said it was good. At the end of the article I will explain why they would say that. What they meant to say was “Everything is great because we, as a title company, are not at risk at all based on our review of your title”. Continue reading “Title Crisis”
NEW GRANDMA IN CALIFORNIA DOES SLEUTHING AND DISCOVERS MAJOR ROBO NOTARY VIOLATIONS WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR HOMEOWNER-BORROWERS, INVESTORS AND MAJOR BANKING & INVESTMENT FIRMS. IS THERE IRS TAX EVASION ON THE PART OF BANKS & INVESTMENT FIRMS?

In 2001 she discovered accounting irregularities at a Fortune 500 where she was a Director in Information Technology. This led to investor lawsuits against that company for accounting fraud and insider trading. At a prior employer she contacted the FBI and worked with them to ensure they investigated Medicare Fraud. The CFO of that company went to prison.
Now, in fighting to determine title on her home, she has discovered something even more slimy and with much broader implications. In an attempt to validate a ‘squiggle’ type mark on a recorded document with the Alameda County Recorder’s office, Ms. Carr felt it imperative that she obtain a copy of the page from the notarial journal from the California notary who performed the notarization of the ‘Corporation Deed of Assignment’ related to her property.
Ms. Carr, under California laws, is entitled to purchase a copy of the page in the notarial journal related to her property and so she wrote to the Orange County Recorder’s office and sent a check to cover the copy fees. Orange County is where the notary was registered. Within weeks she received a certified letter back from the Orange County recorder stating that they should have the notarial journal, but they did not have it. See, once a notary is no longer a notary in California, it is the law that they must turn in their notarial journal to the county recorder.
