Ingham County Officials See Decrease in Sheriff’s Deeds (VIDEO)

Officials say throughout Ingham County the number of sheriff’s deeds has dropped by nearly 45% compared to last year.

In 2009 there were 1,701 sheriff’s deeds and then in 2010 it spiked a bit to 1,792. So far this year there have only been 1,254.

Ingham County Register of Deeds’ Curtis Hertel Jr. contributes the decrease to a few things.

“Some of it’s due to the mass confusion of banks from the foreclosure process, between robo signing and MERS foreclosing on people… a lot of foreclosures have been stalled out. So I think some of it’s that. I also think some of it’s that we’ve hired an attorney for citizens who are in foreclosure. We’ve worked with people to get counselors and we’re fighting the banks on every level,” said Hertel.

    It also behooves me as to why the other MI counties have not jumped on the MERS suit bandwagon. Guess its easier to turn away and wait to see what happens elsewhere….in the meantime, families are being thrown out of their homes. WTF?

  2. Beth A. says:

    In northern MI you can still see foreclosure notices from Trott & Trott, etc. – still foreclosing on MERS’ name.
    Go figure. Maybe they’re just pushing them thru until sometimes stops then up there.

    There is no legal fix for what they did not do….RECORDThe only conclusion that can be drawn for lack of recordingof a proper assignment at the recorders office, which is what creates the lien, the Plaintiff is covering up for something they did not do……which is deliver the loan file to the trust….If the Plaintiff is unable to show proper endorsement upon the note or the delivery certificates for any endorsment in blank which is what creates a legal assignment the Plaintiff cannot legally foreclose…and that is why they are manufacturing documents and that is criminal and that is also why ALL fraudclosures and evictions must stop..
