According to the lawsuit, Citi and Wells used the wrong code to report the short sales to credit reporting agency Experian.Experian was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Plaintiffs allege that the credit reporting agency failed to ensure that the information Citi and Wells reported to them was accurate and that the credit agency failed to properly investigate consumers’ complaints regarding the matter.The lawsuit seeks class action status and was filed on behalf of John Shaw of Alpine, California, and other consumers. The suit accuses the defendants of violating the U.S. Fair Credit Reporting Act.Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda said regarding the case, “Wells Fargo is prepared to present its arguments in court.” Citi spokesman Mark Rodgers said, “We deny the allegations and believe the case is without merit.” Experian could not immediately be reached for comment.

Home sales increased in Boston, Philadelphia, Richmond, St. Louis, Dallas, and San Francisco, but fell in Cleveland and Kansas City. Weather conditions slowed home construction in New York, Philadelphia, and Cleveland and caused Boston to have low levels of inventory. The report notes that lack of desirable lots and low inventory levels continue to slow the market.Philadelphia, Boston, and New York all saw relative growth. All six New England states saw an increase in single-family home sales at the end of December 2014. In Massachusetts, December was only the second month, of the past six, with a year-over-year increase in home sales, while prices have increased 26 out of the last 27 months. The New York District’s housing markets have strengthened somewhat in early 2015. Rents across the rest of the District are up roughly 2 percent over the past year. Housing markets across the rest of New York State and New Jersey have mostly been sluggish, in part due to the inclement weather. Although home sales are increasing rapidly in Philadelphia, growth is slower in the rest of the state.Residential real estate activity increased moderately in the Richmond district. Realtors in Virginia and North Carolina reported increased sales, especially for higher end homes in North Carolina. Home sales increased in the St. Louis district on a year-over-year basis. Compared with the same period in 2013, December 2014 monthly home sales were up 5 percent in Louisville, 11 percent in Little Rock, and 29 percent in St. Louis.Home sales rose in Dallas, although reports on the pace of growth were mixed. Contacts in Dallas-Fort Worth noted a strong, earlier-than-normal pickup in traffic and sales, while demand in Houston held steady. Home prices continued to edge upward in this district.Home sales fell in Cleveland and Kansas City. Cleveland single-family home sales for all of 2014 were down slightly below last year, while the average sale price rose 4 percent. Kansas City residential sales decreased modestly in part to seasonal sale patterns and low inventory. Sale of low and medium priced homes continued to outpace sales of higher priced homes in the city.center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Ratings Agency Publishes Report on Freddie Mac Loan Loss Data Next: Lack of Credit Availability, Low Inventory Challenging Housing Market Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily March 4, 2015 837 Views Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book Share Save Subscribelast_img read more

The data gathered is based on mortgage performance health, stages of delinquency as well as transition rates from one stage of delinquency to the next. In its previous report, released on December 2018, CoreLogic revealed an upward spike in serious delinquency rates in disaster-affected areas. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic pointed out to a sharp rise in the 30- or 60-day delinquency rate by 19 percent in the Redding metro area between August to September—recording the largest monthly rise in the metric since 2006, the period that marked the beginning of foreclosure crisis. With the exception of disaster-affected areas, the report found that U.S. serious delinquency and foreclosure rates were the lowest for September in 12 years. It also reflected a steady drop in the past due rate on an annual basis, for the past nine months consecutively. Nationally, 4.4 percent of mortgages were in some stage of delinquency, recording a decline in the overall delinquency rate at 0.6 percentage, compared to 5 percent last year.“Outside of the areas affected by natural disasters, serious delinquency, and foreclosure rates have declined steadily across the nation as the labor market has improved and home prices have risen,” said Frank Martell, President, and CEO of CoreLogic.CoreLogic will release its latest Loan Insights Report on Tuesday, 9 a.m. ESTHere’s what else is coming in The Week Ahead:AEI National Housing Market Indicators, Monday, 11 a.m. ESTMBA Apps, Wednesday, 9 a.m. ESTFOMC Minutes, Wednesday, 2 p.m. ESTFed Balance Sheet, Thursday, 4:30 p.m. ESTFreddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Index, Thursday, 9 a.m. EST The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: A Closer Look at Mortgage Performance Share Save Subscribelast_img read more

In a perspective blog entitled, “Affordable Housing Crisis Demands Renewed Focus on Housing Supply,” Hayward pointed out the plight of buyers seeking reasonably priced homes in a market with an insufficient supply of such units. “In communities across the United States–from our fastest-growing cities to rural towns–imbalances between supply and demand have persisted. Rather than self-correcting, in many places, they have worsened over the last decade. In most cases, these imbalances have been exacerbated by a complex set of policies, incentives, and disincentives that have sharply limited the available supply of moderately priced homes and apartments,” he said. Speaking of single-family homes, Hayward noted that according to Fannie Mae’s analysis of housing data, the inventory of existing single-family homes for sale has declined over 30 percent nationwide since 2011, while the nominal price of homes sold has increased by 57 percent. He cited the inadequate single-family construction in the current expansion relative to job growth as the reason for the insufficient supply of both new and existing homes for sale. “First-time homebuyers, especially baby boomers, are staying in their homes longer, limiting the supply of starter homes for new first-time homebuyers as well as the supply of ‘next homes’ for growing families looking to buy up,” he said. “That is a key reason why the supply-price imbalance for moderately priced homes – those most attractive to new households or first-time homebuyers – has been even worse than higher-priced homes,” Hayward added. Commenting on apartment seekers, Hayward noted that they have it bad as well as low to moderate incomes has remained static since 2010 at a time demand for these units has been brisk. Most new apartments are targeted at higher-income renters even now and have resulted in rents outpacing wages nationwide most major U.S. metropolitan markets. He also addressed the dilemma faced by the entire mortgage market in an environment where housing is becoming expensive by the day in an industry facing difficulties in making mortgages sustainable. However, he noted that “the supply of mortgages may be adequate, but clearly, the supply of homes is not.”  Hayward also touched upon Fannie Mae’s efforts in tackling housing affordability and the significant role of innovations and partnerships in renewing the focus on housing supply.

A Look at Securitized Trusts and Diversity Jurisdiction

Edling is the Appellate Practice Chair for the national law firm, Houser & Allison, APC. Her practice focuses on mortgage servicing and other business litigation, as well as appellate advocacy before Washington, California, and Oregon Courts, Federal Circuit Courts, and Bankruptcy Appellate Panels. Ms. Edling’s appellate successes include the lead Oregon case clarifying the proof required to show entitlement to enforce a note, Deutsche Bank Trust Co. Americas v. Walmsley, 277 Or App 690, 696-97 374 P3d 937 (2016), and the recent decision in Demarest v. HSBC Bank USA, N.A. as Tr. for registered holders of Nomura Home Equity Loan, Inc., Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2006-HE2, No. 17-56432, 2019 WL 1510430 (9th Cir. Apr. 8, 2019). She can be reached at [email protected] In a good news ruling for Investors in mortgage real estate trusts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has published a decision which allows securitized trusts to stay in federal court based on diversity jurisdiction. The Court rejected an argument that would have jeopardized the ability of investment trusts to ever remove a lawsuit to federal court on diversity jurisdiction grounds.  See Demarest v. HSBC Bank USA, N.A. as Tr. for registered holders of Nomura Home Equity Loan, Inc., Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2006-HE2, No. 17-56432, 2019 WL 1510430 (9th Cir. Apr. 8, 2019).  Federal Courts are preferred for those with mortgage investment interests for a number of reasons, such as locale, court processes, efficiency, and quality.The Demarest case involved a borrower, Joan Demarest, who initiated several suits to stall foreclosure on property securing her loan after she defaulted on her loan.  Demarest filed her latest suit against “HSBC Bank USA, N.A.,” the entity serving as trustee for an investment trust (the “Trust”) to which Demarest’s note and deed of trust had been transferred.  The defendant in the suit removed the case to federal court, identifying itself as “HSBC Bank USA, N.A., as Trustee for the Registered Holders of Nomura Home Equity Loan, Inc., Asset-Backed Certificates, Series 2006-HE2,” providing the full name of the Trust.  The Trust’s removal notice advised that removal was proper based on diversity jurisdiction because Demarest was a California citizen and HSBC was a national banking association considered a citizen of Virginia for diversity jurisdiction purposes.Demarest did not challenge the removal during the trial court proceedings.  However, when the Trust later prevailed on summary judgment, Demarest appealed, asserting for the first time  that an investment trust could only establish diversity jurisdiction by showing that the citizenship of all of its beneficiaries – not just its trustee – was diverse from the plaintiff.Although the Ninth Circuit has ruled for decades that a trust’s citizenship is that of its trustee, Demarest argued that this precedent had been overturned three years ago, when the U.S. Supreme Court considered the case, Americold Realty Trust v. Conagra Foods, Inc., 136 S. Ct. 1012 (2016).  In Americold, the Supreme Court was asked to determine whether diversity jurisdiction existed in a case involving an unincorporated real estate investment trust created under Maryland law, which had brought suit in its own name, as it was authorized to do pursuant to Maryland statute.  The Americold Court concluded that the Maryland trust’s citizenship for diversity jurisdiction purposes was that of the trust’s members rather than its trustees, likening the Maryland trust to a limited partnership or joint-stock company, artificial entities whose citizenship is determined by its members or shareholders.  Id. at 1016-1017.Since Americold, courts determining the citizenship of a trust for purposes of assessing diversity jurisdiction have applied different tests, but typically consider both the identity of the party actually named in the suit, as well as evaluate the type of trust involved.  See, e.g., Bynane v. Bank of New York Mellon for CWMBS, Inc. Asset-Backed Certificates Series 2006-24, 866 F.3d 351, 357 (5th Cir. 2017) (“Where a trustee has been sued or files suit in her own name, the only preliminary question a court must answer is whether the party is an active trustee whose control over the assets held in its name is real and substantial”); Raymond Loubier Irrevocable Tr. v. Loubier, 858 F.3d 719, 722 (2d Cir. 2017) (holding where a party trust was created “from trust agreements establishing only traditional fiduciary relationships” and is not a distinct entity under state law, legal proceedings were properly brought against the trustee and the trustee’s citizenship controlled).  Until Demarest, the Ninth Circuit had not yet weighed in on the issue.  Accordingly, Joan Demarest argued that Americold constituted a “sea change” in how courts determine the citizenship of a trust, and required the Ninth Circuit to find that an investment trust’s citizenship was that of all of its beneficiaries.Had Demarest prevailed in her argument, an investment trust’s ability to remove a case on diversity jurisdiction grounds would have been precluded unless the trust could prove that no beneficiaries of the trust resided in the same state as the borrower – a potentially formidable task, as the beneficiaries of these trusts presumably reside in many states across the country.  The Ninth Circuit rejected the argument, however, finding that the citizenship of an investment trust, sued in its own name, and arising out of a trust agreement containing typical fiduciary powers, is the citizenship of its trustee.The Court’s decision was premised on two separate grounds.  First, the Court distinguished Americold from Demarest on the grounds that the trust in Americold had brought suit in the trust’s own name, as it was allowed to under Maryland law.  In contrast, Demarest had brought suit against “HSBC Bank, N.A.,” itself, naming the Trustee only and not the Trust.  The Demarest Court noted that Americold, as well as other prior Supreme Court precedent, supported the ruling that “when a trustee files a lawsuit or is sued in her own name, her citizenship is all that matters for diversity purposes.”  Demarest, 2019 WL 1510430, at *5 (citing Americold, 136 S. Ct. at 1016; Navarro Savings Assn. v. Lee, 446 U.S. 458, 462-466, 100 S. Ct. 1779 (1980)).Second, the Ninth Circuit distinguished the mortgage-backed investment trust in Demarest from the Maryland investment trust in Americold, finding that the Trust in Demarest was, “under any criteria, properly characterized as a traditional trust.”  2019 WL 1510430, at *5. The Court noted that traditionally a trust was not considered a distinct legal entity capable of suing and being sued, and that the Maryland trust in Americold therefore differed from a traditional trust because it was authorized by statute to sue in its own name.  Further, the Trust Agreement governing the Trust in Demarest indicated that it was a common law trust governed by New York law and provided that HSBC as Trustee had the power to hold the Trust’s assets, sue in its own name, transact the Trust’s business, and engage in other necessary activities.  HSBC as Trustee was therefore the real party in interest for the Trust, given it possessed “certain customary powers to hold, manage, and dispose of assets for the benefit of others.” 2019 WL 1510430, at *5. The Court held that, as the real party in interest, a trustee’s citizenship controlled for purposes of the diversity jurisdiction analysis.In sum, the Demarest Court concluded that Americold was limited in application, and did not upset Ninth Circuit or prior U.S. Supreme Court precedent holding that where a trustee is sued in its own name, or where it is a traditional trust that is sued, the citizenship of the trust remains that of its trustee.
