The Trustee is given the presumption of correctnes

The Trustee in a non-judicial foreclosure procedure is given the presumption of correctnes[s] in the performance of their position.  This is what the banks or beneficiaries are well aware of and use to their advantage in a non-judicial foreclosure procedure.  Because, by law as ordered by the CA Supreme Court, the Trustee is ruled to be independent and act on behalf of the court in the transaction and is to be at arms length from either the borrower or the lender, the documents filed by the Trustee are considered to be true and correct.  What exactly is true and correct anymore?  As we move forward through this post I may repeat myself a few times in order to make sure of the reader’s clarity.

You see, the Trustee is given the power of the court and subsequently is given the presumption of correctness.  Meaning that, if there were to be a legal action taken by a borrower against a beneficiary for wrongful foreclosure in a non-judicial foreclosure action, the court will first abide by what the Trustee says to be true and correct because they are acting as the court.  It is now the job of the party being foreclosed on to show the court of the illegalities being made by the beneficiary, rather than the Trustee doing their job to begin with, because the Trustee works for the banks and is a strawman in the transaction acting in the best interest of the bank.

It is the job of the Trustee to be independent and to make sure that the paperwork being filed is done according to the rules and is true and correct as it relates to the necessary actions to be taken in the power of sale.  What this truly means is that the paperwork that is submitted by the beneficiary is to be filled out correctly, however, this does not mean that the contents and actions which are stipulated within the documents have been done correctly and in accordance to the rule of law.  So, therefore, the Trustee oversees that the paperwork might be FILED correctly, however, that does NOT mean that the actions to which the beneficiary is claiming to have done, that have been stipulated within the documents in order to comply with the rules of the power of sale, or the contents of the documents, have been done correctly or if at all.  But, because the Trustee is given the presumption of correctness by the court it is assumed by the Superior court that things have been done according to the rules of the power of sale.

So, what happens when the beneficiary does NOT follow the rules of the power of sale?  According to the court, because the Trustee allowed the paperwork to be filed in the County Recorder’s Office, the Superior and Federal Courts assume that the contents of the documents are true and correct.  Why is this?  Because the Trustee is to be independent of both parties in the contract and is to be without bias to the information one way or the other.  It is because of this assumed independence that the Trustee is given the presumption of correctness in their actions.

The beneficiaries know that they have owned the Trustee and have since 1998.  They know that the Trustee is not independent and that the Trustee works in the best interest of the beneficiary and with no interest to the borrower.  For this reason, the Trustee will file any document that is filled out by the beneficiaries, or any party acting as a beneficiary, even if all of the information in those documents are a lie, false, and fraudulent.

When Wells Fargo came at me with guns blazing and filing their Notice of Default, I noticed that the documents were filled with incorrect information.  See my post Notice of Default.  The contents of the information were incorrect.  The papers that were being filed were being filed in order to deceive the court so that the beneficiary could quickly foreclose without allowing us the opportunity to rectify the situation from our end.

The beneficiary is able to use the accepted public perception, and the rule of law set down by the CA Supreme Court in 1978, which dictates that the Trustee is independent.  In this independence it is the intent that the Trustee act on behalf of the court.  Therefore the paperwork is considered true and correct because of the presumption of correctness that is given to the Trustee no matter what the information in the paperwork seems to state.  This is how someone who is current on their payments can be foreclosed on.  This is how someone who paid cash can be foreclosed on.

The Trustee has worked for the banks and has been since the Senate Bill 1638 was passed as law and became active law on January 1, 1998.  The courts have turned a blind eye on fact that the beneficiary and the Trustee are to be independent.  The courts have incorrectly allowed or acted in a complicit nature to the fact that the banks and the Trustee are able to work together in a fraudulent manner.  The courts have turned a blind eye to the fact that when there are any changes to a real estate contract they must be signed by all parties.  The State has incorrectly allowed or acted in a complicit nature in order to allow the banks to fraudulently use a deed of trust mortgage since the year 1998.

(NOTE: If you have not read my previous posts on this issue you can do so and catch up by clicking How is your deed of trust VOID?)

The judicial system itself sold out to a law that had been in the books since 1677.  In 1998 when CA Civil Code 2934a was amended through Senate Bill 1638, and instilled into law on January 1, 1998, it was reiterated in the new law that all parties must sign to any changes to the contract agreement.  Because the courts have turned a blind eye to the fact that the Trustee is to be independent is the exact reason that the deed of trust agreement is fraudulent and VOID.  Because the courts and the state have turned a blind eye to the fact that all parties must sign any and all changes or substitutions that are done to the deed of trust agreement also show how corrupt things have become.

How is your deed of trust VOID?

How is your deed of trust VOID?  The example herein will be using CA law, however keep in mind that there are 34 other states that use deeds of trust.  Due to the nature of the foreclosure fraud that happens throughout the country in EVERY state, there is a sure chance that there are similar laws and rules that dictate a similar scenario in your state.

*********************************************

If someone lends you money it seems quite natural to pay them back for that action.  This is the world we have all seemingly agreed to live within.  In our global paradigm of capitalism it is natural to most people that it is honorable and just to pay the lending party back for the money that was borrowed.  This seems fair and responsible to want to pay back the lending party for their generosity.  This is something that I have heard from everyone that I have spoken to on this subject.  Sometimes there are transactions that have the person who lent the money receive interest for the money that they lent the borrowing party. All of this seems quite natural in the order of things.  People find it honorable and their personal responsibility and duty to return borrowed money.  This seems to be human nature.

There are also times when money gets exchanged and there is a contract involved outlining the details of the exchange.  In normal contract law, both parties must understand all of the details that are outlined within the documents.  It is the obligation of the contracting party(lender) to make sure that the borrower understands all of the details that pertain to the contract.  If there are certain details that are within the contract that the borrower does not understand it is the job of the lender to make clear of any questions or concerns for the borrower.  There must be a “meeting of the minds”.  Everyone must be “on the same page”.  This means simply that the lender and the borrower must know and understand all of the terms of the contract and must agree to all of the terms of the contract.

Now, let’s put this into a context using real estate.  In this context, the contract MUST be in writing.  This dates back to a law called the Statute of Frauds, back to the year 1677.  All of the terms and conditions of the contract MUST be clear and understood by the borrower, as we said that this is standard contract rules.  In real estate, the contract, through the life of the contract, MUST be signed by all parties within the contract.  This comes from the Statute of Frauds.  If there are changes in a contract, then the changes or amendments create a new contract between the parties, therefore, all parties must sign off on any changes throughout the duration of the contract.  Seems fair, right?  If this doesn’t take place and there is confusion about any of the terms of the contract this means that the contract is voidable.

What if the lender does not inform the borrower of certain terms and conditions that are in the contract?  This would mean there is never a meeting of the minds and the contract is voidable. However, what would happen if the lending party actually deceived the borrower, by hiding certain details that exist in some of the terms of the contract, in order to entice the borrower into signing a contract that if the borrower were to know that information would not sign the contract?  These details that are withheld are paramount to the meaning of the contract itself and if the borrower were to have known the details of this withheld information prior to signing the documents they would have not agreed to the terms of the contract.

If this were to happen then the contract is not voidable, it is VOID.  The contract is not worth the paper it is printed on.  This is due to the fact that the lending party knowingly defrauded the borrower by not informing the borrower of imperative details of the contract agreement, so therefore through the actions and choices made by the lender in an attempt to deceive the borrower in order to create the transaction, the contract is VOID.  The borrowed money doesn’t need to be paid back because it was created out of fraud.  If a contract is created out of fraud it is not voidable, the contract is void.  This is clear law.  It is VOID because it was knowingly created in order to deceive one party over the other.  So, the party who attempted to deceive the other is out that money due to the risk of deception they chose to enter into in order to orchestrate the contract agreement.

Everyone knows that there is some level of deception in a monetary transaction when they go to the table in Vegas to gamble.  Everyone knows that the house always wins.  However, in real estate we don’t normally think that we are being deceived when we borrow money to buy a property.  In this case, your house doesn’t win, you lose your house.

This is what happens everyday, in every deed of trust contract, in CA, and all other states throughout the country.  Again, we will use CA as an example for this, but there are another 34 other states in the United States that use deeds of trust.  And many of the other states are attempting to pass legislation that will create deeds of trust states.  If you are a homeowner then this is what happened to you, or your family, your neighbor and every homeowner you know who borrowed money using the regular avenues of institutional financing.  This has been happening in the state of CA everyday, on nearly every deed of trust agreement since the year 1998.  Whether the property is valued at $1 or $100,0000,000, or more.

How is that?  Some of this is laid out in my previous post found here, but we’ll go over it again in order to make things clear.  Do review the previous post as well for a broader scope of information and point of view.

It is hard for people to grasp that they have been swindled when they are still in their homes, are paying for their money that they borrowed and no one is knocking on their door demanding for their money.  Life seems “normal”.  It seems that all is okay and that they were not defrauded.  I hear it every time I talk with people.  They say, “Oh, that didn’t happen in my case, because everything is going well.”  However, you have been swindled and the bank is betting on your moral compass that you will pay them for defrauding you.  And the banks are winning.  You’ve all been duped.

But, what if the contract were VOID and you didn’t have to pay back the bank for defrauding you out of your hard earned money?  How would that change your life?  How would that change our society?  What would you do with all of that money?  How different would your life be if you didn’t have to pay back the bank every month for their deceptive behavior?  It was their actions, not yours, which dictated the result of them not receiving their money back because they lent the money through deceptive means.  Why should the bank be rewarded the return of their money if the only way for you to borrower it was to deceive you?

What makes the banking industry immune to the rule of law?  Why are they able to lie to every borrower in order to secure a contract?  Why are they able to cheat every borrower out of hundreds, thousands or millions of dollars on a monthly basis?  Every month, every year, for decades?  Every month a property owner receives a statement requesting payment for a mortgage.  Every month a property owner is deceived out of their money through this statement from the financial institution requesting payment for the VOID contract that they are collecting on.  Every month, on every deed of trust real estate contract, the bank is defrauding you of your money.  This is mail fraud, and this goes on for each contract throughout the country, month after month, year after year.

How are the banks able to steal homes when someone paid cash for their home and never had a bank in the transaction?  How are banks able to steal homes from people who are current on their mortgage?  If these actions can happen does this mean that the entire system is wrong?

No, actually.  There are laws in place that are designed to orchestrate a proper real estate transaction.  The laws just aren’t being followed or policed.  What it means is that the entire system is corrupt, that’s all.  The systems that pertain to real estate are the lending system and the judicial system.  Both are corrupt in this transaction, otherwise we would have had solutions to this specific issue and I wouldn’t need to be writing this.  But, this is not the case, and I am sitting here writing.

You see,  in 1978, the CA Supreme Court issued a ruling in the Garfinkle v Superior Court for Contra Costa County, respondent being Wells Fargo Bank, specifically detailing the independence of the trustee in a deed of trust agreement.  The independence is what makes the deed of trust work.  They were clear on this, because the Trustee in the transaction is given the power of the court in the transaction.  The independence is what makes the “court” fair and just.

In CA, the process of foreclosing on a borrower is called a non-judicial foreclosure procedure.  The non-judicial foreclosure process was created in order to alleviate any burdens to the court system of any frivolous lawsuits and to help streamline the foreclosure process.  So, if the Superior Court was taken out of the foreclosure process, then another party needed to be reinstated to act as the court in order to conduct a fair and just foreclosure procedure.  So, as the “court” now being the trustee, which the CA Supreme Court ordered was to be independent to both the lender and the borrower in the real estate transaction, they are the rule of law.  It is their position to act independent of all parties and to make sure that both parties in the transaction follow the rules of law as it pertains to a deed of trust agreement.

These rules are outlined in the CA Civil Codes.  The Civil Codes create rules which dictate what is known as a Power of Sale clause that is in a deed of trust real estate agreement.  This rule is CA Civil Code 2924.  When the borrower defaults on the loan payments the Power of Sale becomes activated and the bank is able to begin the foreclosure process.  However, there are also a set of rules with which the lender must comply with.  They must comply each and every rule in order for the non-judicial foreclosure process to be done in accordance to the rule of law. If there is a rule that is missed or done incorrectly, it is the duty of the Trustee stop the foreclosure process.  It is then their duty as “the court” to make the banks comply with the certain code that they failed to comply with.  In other words, the foreclosure process must stop, the lender must make the efforts to comply with the rules of foreclosure and begin the foreclosure action again so that the lender then does in fact comply with all of the rules as they pertain to the foreclosure civil codes and rules of procedure.

So, if the bank doesn’t comply with the rules accordingly, the Trustee is able to stop the bank from wrongly foreclosing on the borrower.  One would think, but no.  It is this reason that people who have paid cash for their home are able to be foreclosed on.  It is for this reason that someone who is current on their mortgage can be foreclosed on.

You see, in the year 1996, the bank lobbyists wrote Senate Bill 1638.  It was brought to the table by then Republican Senator Ross Johnson and signed into law by then Republican Governor Pete Wilson.  This bill became enacted law on January 1, 1998, to amend CA Civil Code 2934a, which is part of the Power of Sale.  What was it that was in this bill that created every deed of trust to become VOID?

 SB 1638, Johnson.  Deeds of trust:  trustee substitution.
   Existing law sets forth the procedures for the substitution of
trustees under a deed of trust upon real property or an estate for
years therein.
   This bill would, as an alternative procedure, set forth the
procedures for the substitution of trustees under a deed of trust
upon real property or an estate for years, given to secure an
obligation to pay money, by the beneficiary or beneficiaries under
the trust deed who hold more than 50% of the record beneficial
interest of a series of notes secured by the same real property or of
undivided interests in a note secured by real property equivalent to
a series transaction.  The bill would also establish a process
through which all of the beneficiaries under a trust deed can agree
to be governed by beneficiaries holding more than 50% of the  record
beneficial interest of a series of notes in real property or
interests in a note equivalent to a series transaction, as specified.
  In order to substitute trustees or agree to be governed by the
majority interest holders, all parties to the transaction would be
required to sign and record a document containing specified
information.

So, as an alternative procedure, the new law set forth the procedures for the substitution of trustee under a deed of trust upon real property.  So, this new law pertains to the party (beneficiary) or beneficiaries under the deed of trust who hold more than a 50% control of the record beneficial interest of the note or a series of notes secured by the property.  In other words, this new law allows the beneficiary to be the party to dictate the substitution of a trustee under a deed of trust.  It goes on to state that in order to substitute a trustee that all parties to the transaction would be required to sign and record a document containing specified information.

Let’s tear this apart.

If the bank is the beneficiary, which in many cases is so, then this gives the bank the power to substitute a new trustee.  So, this means that if an original or other substituted trustee is not allowing the bank to perform illegal actions against the borrower, this law gives the bank the right to substitute to a trustee who will allow the bank to perform illegal actions on behalf of the bank in order to wrongly foreclose on someone.  It also means that every borrower must be a party to sign the substituted trustee when the bank is attempting to do this action.

Now, let’s tear this apart further.

If a bank chooses to foreclose on a borrower who is current on their mortgage and the Trustee is not allowing the bank to file the necessary fraudulent documents into the court, or the County Recorder’s Office, because the bank is unable to prove that the borrower has defaulted on their obligation, then the new law has now given the bank the right to change that Trustee to a party who will comply with the illegal activities of the bank who is choosing to illegally foreclose on someone.  So, let’s take this a bit further.  If someone has paid cash for their home and the bank’s computer spits out an address through their foreclosure software, or a human being puts in an address 222 instead of an 888 into the address of the party to be foreclosed, and there is no independent trustee to put a stop to the wrongdoing, then the wrong home will be foreclosed on.

So, when the bank offers the borrower a deed of trust agreement in the real estate transaction, it would be only natural for you as a borrower to assume that there is an independent Trustee that is in the transaction to make sure that the bank complies with all of the appropriate rules and regulations of the foreclosure process in order to protect your title, your home, your asset. The fact that the bank does not inform the borrower that they know that they can replace a Trustee who acts in the interests of the bank, and holds no interest to act on behalf of the borrower in order to protect the borrower’s title, is fraud.  Because this is fraud, the contract is VOID.

Would you sign a real estate contract if the bank, or realtor, told you that the trustee will not act on your behalf and will not protect your title if the bank were to decide to foreclose on you whether you defaulted, or whether you were current on your payments?  No, nobody would.

The courts have also allowed, because of this rule, the banks the ability to substitute the trustee in all deed of trust real estate transactions for decades.  They have also allowed this action to take place without the borrower’s signature, as it was outlined in the new law, as well as, the Statute of Frauds rule dating back to 1677.

The Trustee is a strawman.  Black’s Law Dictionary defines a strawman as a third party used as a cover in illegal or shady deals; a weak or flawed person with no standing.  So, if the banks know that they have the power to create a strawman for a trustee then there is in fact no independent trustee in the transaction as it was defined by the CA Supreme Court in 1978.

So, the law states that there is to be an independent party, named Trustee, in a deed of trust agreement.  But, the banks have the power to substitute a new trustee.  The courts have allowed the banks to levy this power without the borrower’s signature since 1998.

So, it is very clear that every deed of trust contract agreement that has been signed since the year 1998 is fraudulent.

How did I find this out?

When the very first documents in my non-judicial foreclosure action had incorrect information in them allowing Wells Fargo bank to quickly and illegally foreclose on me, I began to look into the computer archives at the county recorder’s office for a legitimate deed of trust agreement and a legitimate Substituted Trustee that was signed by all parties involved in the transaction, as the 1996 law stated was to be the case, I had to go back into the archives to the year 1997.  It was only then when I began to look into why.

When I began to understand the gravity of this specific issue, I realized that this was the needle in the haystack that no one is talking about.

When I formulated my argument in the court for the 4th Amended Complaint, Judge McGuiness of Superior Court in Alameda County looked me straight in the eyes and told me he understands what I am trying to state.  That he now fully understands my argument. He stated that he gets my points of fact and he would need to take this into consideration.

Why didn’t he simply rule on my case then?  Because the courtroom was filled with people.  Because it would become precedent and common knowledge that all deeds of trust, in CA, were fraudulent and illegal and VOID.  Since 1998…This would have created a situation that would have made every real estate contract either go into litigation and become VOID dating back to 1998, or certainly some other repercussion that was to be measured only as astronomical in our capitalistic paradigm.  But, I believed it is necessary for us to make these type of changes since the entire system is actually based on fraud.  And this is only the beginning.

My case was immediately dismissed and my court files were quickly silenced.

The fallacy of loan modifications

The fallacy of loan modifications help move people toward foreclosure by the belief that the system is designed to help them.

I will start this by stating that I am actually an optimist. Although, it is getting more and more difficult to find that place in today’s world of finance and political and corporate malfeasance.

The arrogance and greed of Wall Street and Washington and the frustration and confusion of the citizens is the game. The mob mentality and the manipulation of fear is the fuel…This is the largest corporate/governmental land grab in history. As the government owns Freddie and Fannie, do to the failed bailouts, (these institutions back 90% of American home loans) and the other banks are making record profits after they received their bailouts, yet are foreclosing en mass and not lending, this tells the story. Quite simple really. When the people begin to believe the level of corruption, from BOTH parties, and the fraud and corruption on Wall Street, and ACT against it things will change. And it can change overnight. France is a good current example.

This will go down in history, that is if the future history books are NOT written in TX, as the largest governmental and corporate land grab in history. The people that deny that this is taking place are not living in the real world. The people that refuse to think the world is this way are not living in the real world. You MUST wake up in order to take back what Wall Street, The FED, and Washington has taken from you! This is a NON PARTISAN situation…

Most people are asleep, and in denial of the true actions taking place. People are walking away from homes before playing their last hand, because they don’t understand the game, their options, their state’s foreclosure laws, the banks legal options, or even the fact that they have the opportunity to challenge the bank. People are nervous about their credit more than they are their home. The world of credit scores as it existed is over and new lines and rules MUST be redrawn. All a FICO score is is a calculated measure of risk tolerance that banks use. Fair Issac, the FICO people, and the 3 credit score firms are also deep into their own fraudulent situations. The whole system is in free fall. The mass media is trying to pacify the people with falsehoods, mis and dis information so the entire system doesn’t simply collapse. Yet the people and “their own little” system of paying bills and having food on the table has collapsed. Understand that your government, a bank or any corporation is NOT ON YOUR SIDE. They can write off losses, or get bailed out. They care NOTHING about the loan holder, or card holder…

If you have stopped paying your mortgage, don’t start again until the bank gives you a new mortgage in line with the current values and percentages. They will send a letter of foreclosure to you, they will threaten you. Possession in 9/10ths of the law. Each state has different Foreclosure policies, timelines, and practices. Learn them!! When the bank forecloses, they must go to court. You should also go to court. There will be a moment when you can ask the court that the bank produce the ORIGINAL loan document to the property in question that has YOUR INK! Due to the fraud, corruption, and criminal activity on Wall Street and the packaging and repackaging of loans that took place, and is still taking place, over 80% of the time the bank is UNABLE to produce the appropriate documents. It is their obligation to supply that document as without it they are in NO position to sue for the right to foreclose. Then follow this with a lawsuit against the bank for harassment, intent to commit fraud, coercion, and along the way we can think of many others…repackage that into massive class action lawsuits…you know…

All of their threatening phone calls, threatening letters of intent is designed to get the homeowner to collapse under that pressure BEFORE it reaches the courtroom. Foreclosure court is currently at the advantage of the homeowner, and not the bank. Why else would the banks and those firms involve forge signatures. Because they don’t have original documents, because they know that they cannot win in court if the people begin to challenge. Now, put that en mass!! That is where the power lies!! They must forge because they cannot come up with the appropriate documents. The paperwork is lost in the shuffle of the Wall Street fraud and corruption of packaging and repackaging loans to resell on the open market. There are even options that traders can buy for options on loans. To trade on loan packages and the real estate market.People spend money to agents that say to them that they will help them with their failed mortgage. This is the one of the biggest frauds being perpetuated today. They tell the homeowner that they will help them with the mortgage company to refinance their loan into a modification. Then they take their money and walk away, knowing the people don’t have the money to sue and come after them for fraud. If the bank cannot help you, that agent cannot help you. And the banks are NOT helping people. Simple. Do not use these con artists.

It is more cost effective for the banks to play the …”oops, we pushed a wrong button” game, or “we didn’t get that paperwork” response. They do this to drag out the process. To wear down the people to a point that people give up or feel that they will lose in the long run, so cut the loss now and move on. People are in a state of confusion with their loss of money, jobs, pride, family turmoil to understand that the banks care NOTHING about helping people. It is the banks position to help their stock holder, thus the Wall Street suit can get the bonus…

It is so simple, but most people don’t want to believe that this is how the world is. IT IS… This is the world we live in. Believe it. The beautiful, wonderful world we live in also has very dark and shitty corners. Understanding this will HELP you live in it. Hiding and not wanting to feel that this is the case will NOT help you. That is his world and the world of the elite on top that create war for profit, buy the judges, lobbyists and congresspersons in order create rules and regulations that help them win in situations like we are in.This will end when people step up and challenge the banks, en mass.

How about this – Everyone simply stop paying all of their mortgages, and credit card debt. Let the banks try to come at every single person in the country begging. The money savings to the people will be put back into the economy in much more productive means than simply paying corporate debt. This corporate debt will be washed away anyway, through the corporate laws allowing them to buy down and write off their debt. The stockholders will take a hit, so sell before begin this process…But what about FICO score. FICO scores are already dead in the water. The credit system that was designed is over. FICO means nothing when the banks are not lending. They are finding it easier and more cost effective for the banking institution to foreclose.Consider this:Does the government REALLY want to clean up this mess or can they find ways to meander through it until the world “gets back to normal” all the while making massive profits along the way…

Okay, let me put it to you this way, and you take it for what it is…In July 2008, Indy Mac failed and was seized by the FDIC. The assets of Indy Mac bank were sold to One West Bank in March 2009. One West Bank was created and is owned by Goldman Sachs VP Stephen Munchen and Billionaires George Soros and John Paulson. All of the residential 1st mortgages were purchased at 70% of the par value of the loan, and all HELOC’s were purchased at 58% of the par value of the loan. Then, the deal these men made with our tax dollars via the congress and senate who agreed to the deal, was that the FDIC would cover 80%-95% of the losses due to any short sales or foreclosures. Now, these men bought the loans at 70% of the value and are guaranteed to 95% of their money back. But, here is another part of their deal. The losses that are guaranteed are to be calculated on the original loan balance. This leaves a spread of profit on the table of a minimum of 20%…GUARANTEED. They CANNOT lose. Your tax dollars are securing their profit margin.

So let me spell it out a bit more clearly…(This is a real real estate transaction) The foreclosed homeowner had a loan balance of $485,000. One West Bank paid @ 70% 334,600 for this loan. Now, this homeowner is offered a short sale from the bank or in the marketplace of $241,000. Now, the ORIGINAL loan amount is what the FDIC agreed to back the percentage loss to One West Bank (or should I say Goldman Sachs and friends). So the difference in the adjusted loss is $244,200. So, the FDIC writes a check to One West for 80% of the loss to the tune of $195,360. So, now you would add the $195,360 from the government, to the profit of the short sale of $241,000 to reach a total of $436,360. But wait, One West only paid $334,600 for the loan. You see, all the bank had to do was sell it for WHATEVER they wanted to…the bank CANNOT lose money on this deal…So, Goldman Sachs, I mean, it’s subsidiary One West Bank, just profited on the sale $101,760.Thanks to YOUR tax dollars and the arrangement with the FDIC, the Goldman Sachs, I mean, it’s subsidiary, One West Bank will be doing this every day, hundreds or even thousand of times for a few years to come…GUARANTEED!!!!

So, if you are still asking yourself “why is it so hard to get a loan modification?” the answer might be simply that there is TOO much money to be made with write offs, short sales, and foreclosures than on loan modifications…You see, Goldman Sachs, damn I keep doing that, I mean, One West Bank actually profited from the sale to the tune of $101,760 even though it was sold for a lesser amount than what they bought it for…DO YOU SEE, YET? DO YOU GET IT?And, by the way, the FDIC recently announced that it needs to start borrowing money from the Treasury. Now, the Treasury is the place where all of the Goldman Sachs people come from. You know, Hank Paulson, Meg Whitman, and so many others…

The Treasury is the government, who Constitutionally, has the right to print their own money, butcancelled this right in 1913 made a deal with the PRIVATE group of white, rich, elite men from Germany, Austria, Switzerland to create the PRIVATE bank called THE FEDERAL RESERVE. or known more commonly as, The Fed. Note, I said PRIVATE BANK called The FED…

CA Civ Code 2934(a) and why EVERY Deed of Trust agreement is void!

The state of CA is a Deed of Trust state.  Which means there is a note and a deed of trust agreement attached with a real estate contract agreement.  The state courts use a non-judicial foreclosure process in which to administer a foreclosure procedure.  The idea of a non-judicial foreclosure process is that it gives the judicial power over to the trustee to administer the foreclosure through the rules of CA Civ Code 2924, which is known as the Power of Sale clause in a deed of trust agreement.  In a non-judicial foreclosure process there is a presumption of correctness that is given to the trustee by the court as it is the job of the trustee to act in the best interests of the court.  It was stated by the CA Supreme Court that the trustee be at arms length and independent of both parties to the agreement in order to create fairness.  It is the job of the trustee to protect the Title from any wrongdoing of either party during the life of the contract agreement.

The fact that the trustee holds no power to protect the borrower from any wrongdoing from the bank in a foreclosure process means that the idea of the trustee and a deed of trust are corrupted as the trustee is a strawman.

Read thoroughly through CA Civ code 2934a.  This code was changed in 1998.   Herein, we will look at the rules as they are written to be effective after January 1, 1998.  I urge you to take a look to a side by side review of the code as it was written prior to January 1, 1998.

In its changes it takes away the powers of the trustee. It gives the power of the trustee, to protect the Trustor’s title from the beneficiary, back to the beneficiary. Which means that the beneficiary is in control of protecting the Trustor’s title and not the trustee, as it is assumed and outlined in the Power of Sale clause, or Ca Civ Code 2924, of a Deed of Trust contract agreement in the state of CA.

The bank knows this, yet, gives the borrower a deed of trust agreement to sign without informing the borrower that the details in the deed of trust are false which make the Power of Sale clause invalid.  The bank does not inform the borrower that the borrower has no protections to their title as soon as they sign the agreement, and that the bank is able to do whatever it wishes to the borrower’s title whenever they wish to do it. This is fraud by the misrepresentation of a material fact.

Because the banks know this information and neglect to inform the borrower of this important detail, that the trustee to a deed of trust contract is a strawman, then there is not a meeting of the minds to the contract agreement. The contract was constructed by the bank against the borrower without the borrower having all of the same information as the bank, as per the rules of the contract. Due to there not being a meeting of the minds to the contract prior to the signing of the contract, and that the rules of the contract are deceptive in nature and benefit one party over the other to the benefit of the bank constructing the contract, this is fraud by the misrepresentation of a material fact.

This also goes against the rules of the CA Supreme Court as per the independence of the trustee necessary in order to protect the interest of both parties involved in a deed of trust.

Through the rules that dictate contract law, and through the Statute of Frauds(1677), it is given that any and all changes in any real estate contract must be done in writing and signed by all parties involved in the contract.  There must be a meeting of the minds of the rules governing the contract or the contract is to be deemed void.

There are currently 35 states in the United States that use a Deed of Trust agreement.  There is legislation in nearly all of the other states to conform to a deed of trust and non-judicial foreclosure process.  There are similar rules in all states that allow this to take place.

 

CA Civil Code 2934a

2934(a)(1) “…a trustee may be substituted by the recording in the county in which the property is located of a substitution executed and acknowledged by: (A) all of the beneficiaries under the trust deed, or their successors in interest…”

This states that the beneficiary is allowed to name a trustee to be substituted, and acknowledge that they have done so and file that in the county recorder’s office.

It is also the job of the trustee to be independent in nature and arms length from either party to the transaction, as per a CA Supreme Court ruling, in order to make sure that all of the rules of the Power of Sale clause are to be followed by both parties in order to protect the interests of either party as to their relationship with the Title. Therefore, if there are any changes to the deed of trust contract it is the obligation of the trustee to make sure that all of the rules are correctly followed and the documents are correct in their information.

this means that the beneficiary is in full control of the trustor’s title, the Power of Sale process, and that the trustee is indeed a strawman.

2934a(4)(b) “If the substitution is executed, but not recorded, prior to or concurrently with the recording of the notice of default, the beneficiary, or beneficiaries, or their authorized agents shall cause notice of the substitution to be mailed prior to or concurrently with the recording thereof…”

As it is the job of the trustee to make sure that all of the rules of the Power of Sale are followed by either party in order to protect the interest of either party in the transaction, the question then lies, “how could the substitution take place and be ececuted without the knowledge of the trustee, or the signing off by the trustor?”

this means that the beneficiary is in full control of the trustor’s title, the Power of Sale process, and that the trustee is indeed a strawman.

2934a(4)(c) “If the substitution is effected after a notice of default has been recorded but prior to the recording of the notice of sale, the beneficiary or beneficiaries or their authorized agents shall cause a copy of the substitution to be mailed…”

this means that the beneficiary is in full control of the trustor’s title, the Power of Sale process, and that the trustee is indeed a strawman.

2934a(4)(d) “…the substitution of trustee shall be deemed to be authorized to act as the trustee under the mortgage or deed of trust for all purposes from the date the substitution is executed by the mortgage, beneficiaries, or by their agents. Nothing herein requires that a trustee under a recorded substitution must accept the substitution…”

this means that the beneficiary is in full control of the trustor’s title, the Power of Sale process, and that the trustee is indeed a strawman.

CA Rule of Court 8.25, Filing and Service to stop our foreclosure sale

confused w pile of books

Before I get into CA Rule of Court 8.25, about filing and Service of court documents I wanted to step back a second. Once we got our case completed, prior to filing it with the court, we found the Lis Pendens and complaint then needed to be reviewed by a judge. (NOTE: only because we filed in Pro Per, attorney’s don’t need to have a judge’s permission to file a Lis Pendens. Another way the court makes it harder for the self litigator…and it is said that justice is fair…) We then submitted it to the Clerk of Court after waiting in the line for nearly two hours. Once the clerk reviewed all of the documents and made sure all of our paperwork was filled out correctly, she took our case documents and stamped them with a docket number. I felt a huge rush of energy flow through me when she stamped the documents. I felt a confidence building within me that I had not felt in the past few years. I had a moment where I felt empowered in all of this living hell…if only for a moment.

Upon receiving our docket number, I was then able to run across and up the street a block to the County Recorder’s Office. We then filed our Lis Pendens with the County Recorder. After filing the Lis Pendens with the County Recorder, I walked back to the Clerk of Court and I filed the County Recorder’s stamped copy of the filed Lis Pendens, with the court.

Now, the clerk of court had asked for two copies to keep, and I brought another copy for them to stamp that I could take for my files. I did this every time I filed anything with the court for the next 3 1/2 years.

Over the previous three months in order to get to this point it had all been a whirlwind. It was nearly all I did was focus on our lawsuit. I had been unemployed for a very long time, due to the collapse of the housing industry during the collapse of the economy, which beginning for me was, in the middle of 2009. I had no children. My health was good, outside of some feelings of anxiety, helplessness, depression, exhaustion, and other overwhelming feelings. I took the time to dive in and do the work. We lived sparsely in order to stay focused on the problem at hand.

My point for rushing to get things filed on the dates we were attempting to was to stave off the impending auction of our house that had been scheduled within the upcoming few days. I wanted to make sure that all parties were privy to the filing, and not by simply filing with the court. We also wanted to make sure they were served before the auction was to begin. So, in order to stop the auction of the property, we felt we should serve the defendants the court documents by overnight mail.

As I had stated previously, in order to find the appropriate addresses necessary to serve a corporation legal documents I reviewed the corporate information to all of the parties mentioned in our case as defendants on the website of the Secretary of State.

I made sure that I would get a signature and time stamp of when the service was completed. After serving the court documents to all of the parties it is the rule of the court that you must then file the proof of service documents to the court for all of the defendants. Rule 8.25 is the rule of the court for service, filing and filing fees can be found at: Rule 8.25. Upon completion of service to all defendants you must then file with the court the proof of service of the documents. This is to be done for every moving paper throughout the duration of the case.

I went to the courthouse steps on the scheduled court auction date. The auction was to begin at 12:30pm. We had made posters that I was to hold up if anyone was to decide they might want to place a bid on our property. We also made those posters smaller to be used as handouts as well. I began giving the handouts to all of the bidders, the bottom feeders, that were there to bid on homes. I had never reflected on those people before. The were simply doing their job working with property management firms, property speculators, builders, developers, etc. I know they thought that all people going through a foreclosure were deadbeats who didn’t pay their mortgage. So, now they were going to be looking at one of those people straight in the eyes, as I would inform them when I gave them the handout, “If you place a bid on this property you will become part and parcel of the lawsuit that is filed against this property. There is a filed Lis Pendens and lawsuit on this property. The information is there for your review.”

I waited. The person who was acting for the “trustee” came up to the top of the steps and began setting up his stand. Once he got settled into his chair and his computer was logged into his system he began to read out the rescheduled or cancelled properties. Different addresses in different cities began spewing from his mouth. I waited. I moved about handing out more handouts. I waited. Then he mentioned my property address!

VICTORY! We had gotten a small respite! The bank had taken our property off of the list! We were now able to stay in our home a bit longer. How long? We had no idea. The auctioneer acting for the “trustee” gave us no indication of another date.

We could sleep in our home for another night.
