Foreclosure Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Penn, Michele


AC42221 - Cheswold (TL), LLC, BMO Harris Bank, N.A. v. Kwong ("The self-represented defendant, Matthew J. Kwong, appeals from the trial court's judgment of foreclosure by sale of his property located at 9 Bradley Lane in the village of Sandy Hook in Newtown (property).He claims that the court erred in denying his motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction on the ground that the substituted plaintiff, ATCF REO Holdings, LLC (ATCF), lacked standing to foreclose the property because the assignment of certain municipal tax liens to ATCF was not recorded on the Newtown land records. Accordingly, the principal issue in this appeal is whether the assignment of a municipal tax lien is required to be recorded on the land records in order for the assignee to have standing to foreclose the property, which is an issue of first impression for this court. For the following reasons, we conclude that such recording is not required and affirm the judgment of the trial court.")

AC42228 - U.S. Bank, National Assn. v. Madison ("The defendant Margit Madison appeals from the judgment of strict foreclosure rendered by the trial court in favor of the plaintiff, U.S. Bank, National Association, as Trustee for MASTR Adjustable Rate Mortgages Trust 2007-1, Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2007-1, following the termination of the defendant's bankruptcy stay. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court erred by concluding that she lacked standing to object to the plaintiff's motion to reenter the judgment of strict foreclosure. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
