By about 10 AM ET tomorrow morning, the nation will know if the GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have the votes needed to pass the nomination on to the full Senate floor.  If they do, that vote will likely occur next week, perhaps by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Whatever happens, there are sound bites that both sides will have to use for fundraising and get-out-the-vote efforts for the looming midterms.  That’s what several members of the Senate arguably wanted.  “We Provide, You Decide.” © ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)

Are Loans Unsafe Outside QM?

April 18th, 2013 Comments off

According to nationalmortgagenews, bankers were relieved when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released its qualified mortgage rule (QM) in January, which gives the lender protection if a borrower defaults. But now some bank executives are hesitant to make loans outside the QM rule, and worry they could be rapped on the knuckles if they do not. In testimony before a House Financial Services subcommittee (financial institutions), Ken Burgess of First Bancshares of Texas says the risk is too high outside the QM rule, and his bank will no longer offer those loans. Other bankers noted tighter credit standards make it tougher to meet the Community Reinvestment Act requirements, which is lending to less creditworthy borrowers. Charles Kim of Commerce Bancshares representing the Consumers Bankers Association, says, “There’s a continual friction between safety and soundness regulation and then the need to make loans in underserved markets.” MHProNews has learned the panelists support a bill in both houses of Congress to create an independent appeals procedure for bank examinations.

Court Determines Deed Improperly Filed

July 20th, 2012 Comments off

MHProNews has learned following a five day bench trial, the law firm of Hart, King & Coldren (HKC) of Santa Ana, California successfully defended its client, a trust, against another trust that claimed 75 percent ownership of real property in Los Angeles County of which HKC’s client owned half. Having learned the plaintiff’s claim was based on an improperly filed deed more than a decade ago by plaintiff’s prior attorney, HKC filed a counterclaim to correct the deed, recover the expenses used to maintain the property that the plaintiff had refused to pay, and appoint a referee to sell the property. In court, the prior attorney for the plaintiff admitted to a drafting error in creating the deed, and HKC proved the plaintiff’s testimony surrounding the deed’s preparation lacked credibility. In addition, the judge ruled HKC’s client could be reimbursed for attorney’s fees and costs.

MHI Testifies at Dodd-Frank Hearing

July 12th, 2012 Comments off

Speaking for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) at a hearing on the impact of Dodd-Frank mortgage requirements before the House Financial Services subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Wed. July 11, Tom Hodges, General Counsel for Clayton Homes, suggested Congress create a secondary market for manufactured home buyers so all residential borrowers will have access to the same products. Drawing more lenders to the market would create more competition and lower financing charges, he said. He also urged Congress to avoid any regulation that would be a barricade to lenders’ ability to make manufactured housing loans. His role at Clayton, the largest producer of manufactured homes in the country,  includes implementation of Dodd-Frank and other regulations.
