Florida Bankers Work with Rep Passidomo to “Fix” Foreclosure Bill

This is from the last session in march 2011…


Florida House bill would waive rights of some delinquent home owners

Lenders could bypass plenty of legal legwork when they foreclose on some homes, including abandoned houses, investment properties and vacation homes if a bill in the Florida House becomes law.

The law would create an “alternative foreclosure procedure” that lenders could impose on owners of non-homesteaded properties with values far below their mortgages or properties the lender deems to be abandoned.

Under the proposed procedure, delinquent owners would waive their rights to defend the foreclosure, allowing the lender to more quickly obtain a summary judgement to auction the property.

The owners would have 30 days from the date of the foreclosure filing to opt-out of the streamlined procedure. If they do object, the owner would have the right to fight the lender.

Although the proposed process wouldn’t apply to houses and condos that are primary residences, critics fear a loss of consumer rights and protections.

The Florida Fair Foreclosure Act, HB 1191, is sponsored by Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples.

Foreclosure defense attorneys and consumer activists say the bill would put the burden on owners to maintain their constitutional rights to due process.

  1. Taking away our due process and constitutional rights is treason.

  2. It is time to set up petitions and to go after the represenatives that are protecting the banksters. The represenatives have a duty to the tax payers and voters. They have a fudiciary duty to protect you and make sure you have your due process. The have a duty not to breach this. They have a duty not to breach the “Honest services Doctrine.” They are not immune to fraud. and Felony fraud statutes. Attorneys, judges and represenatives are not immune to all the above and torts against us. When they fail to protect us they have breached their fudiciary duties. I am not an attorney can anyone out there that is have the courage to look into this and do something brave for America?
