Reporter Paul Kiel will be taking readers’ questions on the foreclosure crisis in a Reddit chat tomorrow, April 11, starting at 3 p.m.

Paul has been reporting on foreclosures for the past three years. He won the 2011 Scripps Howard Award for his work, and his e-book, “The Great American Foreclosure Story,” came out today. It ties all the elements of the foreclosure crisis into one compelling narrative. We highly suggest you read it.

Prior to ProPublica, Paul covered congressional corruption and the Justice Department at TPMMuckraker.

You can ask him almost anything about the foreclosure crisis and investigative reporting. (What’s the best way to get a mortgage modification? How did the government’s decisions affect the foreclosure crisis? To what extent are irresponsible borrowers responsible for the crisis? What’s it like to report on such a massive, nationwide problem?)

To join the chat, just head to the Reddit IAmA homepage at 3 p.m. You can read the whole chat without an account, but to participate, you’ll have to register via the link in the upper right hand corner. If you like, you can start leaving questions in the comments below, and we’ll transfer them to the chat.

    Dear Sir:
    I am a serious foreclosure battle with Saxon Mortgage. it appears my case would have been open & shut case by way of the fact that there’s fraud IE robo signing, back dating on the assignments and such. I also have a sworn affidavit from Lynn Symoniack outling the indiscretions of my loan. The problem is the judge would not rule on any of the evidence based on the fact that I lost standing because initially I answered the summons, agreeing to the fact that i owed the money on the loan, a typical hardship letter drafted by someone who represented themsleves as a FHA councilor, who left me high and dry. I have since learned that I have a valid case. I am at a loss as to what to do because it’s too late to amend my answer to the summons and the judge has awarded the bank judgment. I AM TRULY DESPERATE AND CANNOT LET THE BANK STEAL MY PROPERTY. Also i have been receiving statements from a different lender, itemizing for monthly payments.
    IS THERE ANY RELIEF FOR US.
    Respectfully,
    Cipher Rahiem

      Not one single state’s real estate commission board will say that they have to have a license to do business in the state. They don’t want any part of it!!

    Mr. Kiel:On Nov 15 2005 we bought 3/4 th of a commercial property my husband inhere ted from his parents. Doral Bank made the mortgage. On Jan 6 2006 Doral sold to Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Bank assigned this property to one of their corporations, Reo Properties Corp. On December 2007 Doral foreclosed and got summary judgement.. Judge would not set aside this judgement. We sued because the judgement was null and void. because Doral had no standing and our corp. laws state that a foreign corp which has not registered as one at the State Dpt. cannot use our courts. As of today 13 judges have resigned from seeing this case. What can I do ? Where can I get the info on how much Deutsche Bank paid Doral, its MERS number, and if the Bank Credit Default swap paid and if so how much. We have a case,but NO JUDGE and today at court was told they do not know how long it will take to get one to see case..

  4. Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmm!
