Unendorsed Notes Used by Bank of New York in Foreclosures

June 18, 2014

A Study by The Housing Justice Foundation (click to download PDF).

When faced with foreclosure after the financial crisis of 2008, millions of U.S. homeowners filed bankruptcy cases.  In the 12-month period ending December 31, 2008, there were 1,074,225 non-business bankruptcy filings. This was a significant increase from 822,590 non-business filings in 2007, and nearly twice the 2006 filings of 597,965.  The figures were worse in 2009, with 1,412,838 non-business filings.  In 2010, the filings continued to increase with 1,536,799 non-business filings.  The first decrease was in 2011, with 1,362,847 new filings. In 2012, the number of new filings was 1,181,016. In the five years after the financial crisis, 2008 – 2012, over 6.5 million Americans (6,567,725) filed for bankruptcy.  The total is likely well over ten million because many of the filings were joint filings by spouses.

In millions of cases, the debtors were trying to save their homes from foreclosure, or simply escape the deficiency judgment that would follow them even after they lost their homes, as home prices fell over 50% in many of the hardest hit parts of the country, and the mortgage debt far exceeded the home values.

In most cases, filing for bankruptcy merely delayed the inevitable.  With the filing, there was an automatic stay or stop to all collection activities, including foreclosure. But the stay was only temporary relief.  Within a few months of the filing date, a bank would most often file a Motion to Modify or Set Aside the Stay, asking the court to allow the foreclosure to proceed, and in the vast majority of these cases, the bank’s motion was granted.

In most of the cases from 2008-2012, the bank that asked the bankruptcy court for permission to foreclose was not the original mortgage lender.  In most of these cases, the bank was acting as a trustee for a residential mortgage-backed securitized (“RMBS”) trust.  Thousands of these trusts were formed from 2004-2007, with loan pools of several trillion dollars of U.S. mortgage debt.  The pools were sold to investors, who expected a return for 30 years from the stream of mortgage payments.

By the time the average mortgage loan was the subject of a bankruptcy court filing, that loan had been sold at least two, but often three or more times.  The lender (Countrywide Bank, FSB, for example) sold the loan to a related third-party (Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., for example) who sold the loans to a securities company known as a “depositor” (CWALT, Inc., for example), who then sold the loan, combined with several thousand other loans to form an RMBS trust (Alternative Loan Trust 2005-2, for example). Each trust had a trustee (The Bank of New York, for example) and that was the entity that eventually filed the Motion in bankruptcy court to allow it to pursue a foreclosure.  The filing would be made, for example, by The Bank of New York, as Trustee for CWALT Alternative Loan Trust 2005-2, even though the debtors had taken a home loan from Countrywide Bank and made their monthly payments to Countrywide, until the time they defaulted.

When Bank of New York filed its Motion, typically the allegations in the Motion included a statement by the bank’s lawyer that:

Bank of New York as Trustee for the Certificate-holders of CWALT 2005-2 is the holder of a secured claim against the Debtor evidenced by a note and mortgage, copies of which are attached hereto.

The note and mortgage attached by the Bank of New York showed Countrywide Bank, FSB, as the lender, not the Bank of New York or Countrywide Home Loans or the CWALT 2005-2 Trust.  The endorsements on the note were the critical link between the Bank of New York as Trustee and the original lender, showing the bank’s right to proceed.  On the last page of the Note itself, below the signatures of the borrowers, there was a stamp that would read “Pay to the Order of Countrywide Home Loans, Inc.” and, directly underneath, a signature of an officer of Countrywide Bank, FSB (Laurie Meder, Vice President, for example.)  Because this endorsement identified a specific payee, Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., the endorsement was a “special endorsement.”  Under the Uniform Commercial Code of most states, this special endorsement authorized Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., and only Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. to claim to right to enforce the note.

In the example, however, Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. also sold the loan. On the note, on the same last page, near the endorsement stamp of Laurie Meder, for example, there is a second endorsement that reads “Pay To The Order of ____________________” and directly underneath the blank line, a signature of an officer of Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. (Michele Sjolander, for example, as Vice President of Countrywide Home Loans, Inc.). Because this endorsement did not identify a specific payee, this was a “blank endorsement.”  Under the Uniform Commercial Code of most states, this blank endorsement authorized anyone holding the note with the endorsement to claim the right to enforce the note.

On every note submitted in bankruptcy courts by the Bank of New York as Trustee for a CWALT, CWABS or CWMBS trust (which held over $500 billion dollars of loans), that included an endorsement in blank or an endorsement to the Bank of New York, as Trustee, or an endorsement to the particular trust, that note does indeed serve as evidence of a secured claim against the debtor, noting, of course, that evidence can be successfully rebutted.

The terms of the trust agreements specified that the notes were to have been endorsed in blank, as the following provision from the Pooling and Servicing Agreement for CWALT Alternative Loan Trust 2005-72 (p.31) in subsection 2.01, Conveyance of Mortgage Loans specifies:

                  (i) (A) the original Mortgage Note endorsed by manual or

facsimile signature in blank in the following form: “Pay to the order

of ____________ without recourse,” with all intervening endorsements

showing a complete chain of endorsement from the originator to the

Person endorsing the Mortgage Note (each such endorsement being

sufficient to transfer all right, title and interest of the party so

endorsing, as noteholder or assignee thereof, in and to that Mortgage

Note);

These endorsements were to have been made, and the notes delivered, by the closing date of the trust, reviewed by the document custodian or the trustee, and returned to the originators if there were any deficiencies, so they originator could correct the deficiencies or replace the loan with another qualified loan.

The trust agreements also make it clear that the endorsed notes were to have been delivered to the Master Servicer to be used in foreclosures, as the following provision from the Pooling and Servicing Agreement for CWALT Alternative Loan Trust 2005-72 (p.57) in subsection 3.12, Trustee to Cooperate; Release of Mortgage Files specifies:

From time to time and as shall be appropriate for the servicing or foreclosure of any Mortgage Loan…the Trustee shall, upon delivery to the Trustee of a Request for Release in the form of Exhibit M signed by a Servicing Officer, release the Mortgage File to the Master Servicer. Subject to the further limitations set forth below, the Master Servicer shall cause the Mortgage File or documents so released to be returned to the Trustee when the need therefor by the Master Servicer no longer exists, unless the Mortgage Loan is liquidated…

There is a very clear picture of what was supposed to happen whenever a trust wanted to foreclose on a loan in the trust:  the servicer was to file a form, and the trustee was to deliver the endorsed note to the servicer to use in the foreclosure.  This is what actually happened: in nearly 80% of the cases, Bank of New York used unendorsed notes, and an unsupported allegation that it had the right to foreclose for mortgage-backed trusts.

 

UNENDORSED NOTES USED BY BANK OF NEW YORK IN FORECLOSURES:

Bankruptcy Cases Filed in 2008 and 2009 In 3 Jurisdictions Were Reviewed;

Where Bank of New York, as a Trustee, filed a Motion To Set Aside or Modify the Automatic Stay To Allow A Foreclosure To Go Forward (usually for a CWABS, CWALT or CWMBS Trust – that is, Countrywide);

To Determine How Often the Bank filed an ENDORSED NOTE (endorsed either in blank or to a trust or trustee) In Support of Its Motion.

(Only cases that ended in a Standard Discharge by 6-10-2014 were considered).

In 79% of the Cases, the Bank of New York Filed an Unendorsed Note.

Why does Bank of New York as Trustee most often use unendorsed notes in Bankruptcy court foreclosures? 

Did the trusts ever receive the endorsed notes as promised to investors?
