MERS 62 Million Homes May Become Free and Clear Some Day!
Yep, it’s true it’s my understanding over 62 million homes are currently held in the name of MERS [Mortgage Electronic Registration System]. This is a system that was concocted by and for the benefit of the mortgage industry. A bankruptcy court in California recently ruled that this electronic shortcut makes it not possible for banks to prove and establish their ownership of property titles; therefore they can not foreclose on mortgaged properties and this decision was made following landmark cases in other jurisdictions.

Bundling mortgages into securities were a favored type of investment of speculators at the height of the financial bubble which led to the crash of 2008. Oftentimes, the securities changed hands numerous times, and to top it off it seems the companies profiting from the mortgage payments were all to often not even the same parties that negotiated the loans with the consumers. May I add – it’s probably way over 62 Million Homes too.
Now, you guessed it, at the center of this disconnect was the Mortgage Electronic Registration System, or MERS. MERS is a company that acts as the mortgagee of record for lenders, which allows properties to change hands without the necessity of recording each transfer. That, in case you didn’t know, is a big 62 Million Homes of NO NO!
MERS a Bust with These 62 Million Homes on the Brink:
Oh sure, MERS was very convenient for the mortgage industry. However courts are now questioning the impact of all of this financial juggling when it comes to who owns the mortgages of the 62 million homes. And rightfully so. FYI: In order to foreclose on real property, the plaintiff must establish the chain of title thereby entitling it to relief. Yet, MERS has acknowledged, and recent cases have also held, that MERS is just a “nominee” — which means it’s an entity appointed by the true owner simply for the purpose of holding property in order to facilitate transactions. The great news is, that recent court opinions stress that this defect is not just a procedural one but is a substantive failure, one that is fatal to the plaintiff’s legal ability to foreclose on a possible 62 million homes.
What does this mean? It means that hordes of victims of predatory lending could end up owning their homes free and clear – and the financial industry could end up falling on their on sword.
