This class will cover the most common causes of action in foreclosure litigation, including breach of contract, negligence, §17200 (California’s Unfair Competition Law), and HBOR (Homeowner’s Bill of Rights). It will focus on issues face by homeowners, such as denial of permanent modifications after completing trial modification; two- to three-year delays and modification reviews which impact alternative options available to homeowners, such as chapter 13 Bankruptcy or sale of the property; and, "dual tracking" where the lender schedules foreclosure when the borrower is in modification review.
