Wilmington, Del. — On February 22nd, the Arizona State Senate passed SB 1249 requiring lenders that did not originate a loan to produce the full chain of title for all prior beneficiaries or risk the foreclosure sale being voided and award of attorney fees and damages. The bill passed the Republican-dominated Senate by an overwhelming margin of 28-2. The bill is now in the House where it is expected to pass despite opposition from the state’s banking industry.
The legislation, if passed into law, would become the first in the country requiring lenders to prove they have the right to foreclose by providing a complete list of any previous owners of the mortgage, or chain-of-title documentation on the debt.
In 2006, Global Debt Registry (GDR) recognized the serious weaknesses in consumer data management practices, and began development on a new technology platform that would ensure the integrity of managed and traded data, track account-level chain of title, and provide a turnkey portfolio and document-management repository. Today, the Company offers a fully developed and proven solution that addresses many of the issues facing the mortgage finance and servicing industry today.
“It is crucial for lenders, legislators, and consumers to understand that a solution to the issues that created this crisis already exists,” said Mark Parsells Executive Chairman of GDR. “Our system provides a single source for management of all data and documentation for Issuers, servicing entities, debt buyers, sellers, legal collection firms, regulators, judges, industry participants, and consumers. We are the only turnkey provider of chain of title, data integrity, and media-management services globally, and we stand ready to provide leadership in the recovery of the lending markets and a return to the fundamentals of law.”
Bruce Gilmore, President and CIO added, “Our patent-pending technologies are in use by more than 60 accounts-receivable clients and servicing entities in all 50 states. The system can be easily customized to provide titling, data integrity, and media-management services for any asset class and industry. Users can easily transmit and receive data and documents while meeting the most stringent regulatory and industry data protection requirements.”
Lawmakers in other states including New York, Oregon, and Virginia have proposed legislation similar to the Arizona bill. Attorneys General of all 50 states are collectively investigating the mortgage servicing industry. GDR offers its knowledge and expertise to those seeking a proven, carefully measured solution to the issues facing the debt industry today.
