We have been working with the Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) to create a system to help people who have been foreclosed on illegally challenge their foreclosure. Bill S.2015 would reduce the time people have to challenge the legality of their foreclosure from 20 years to just one year. Please follow MAAPL’s script below and tell your state representative to oppose this bill today. Thanks!
On Wednesday, 10/14: the Massachusetts House of Representatives votes on S2015: the Title Insurers’ bill to confiscate our constitutional property rights and curtail our right to sue to regain your illegally foreclosed property from 20 years to one without notifying homeowners.Today—Make a quick call, email (or both) to your Rep. Tell them: Vote NO on S2015.Choose from one of these three quick messages:“Vote NO on S2015. It doesn’t clear title to illegally foreclosed homes:
- S2015 strips us of our constitutional property rights & reverses key court decisions enforcing key mortgage contract rights.
- 68,000 Massachusetts homeowners were illegally foreclosed in past 10 years. Banks must be held accountable for their illegal foreclosures.
- The loans on most Massachusetts homes foreclosed in the past decade were illegal themselves & the homes over-priced. Denying these homeowners the right to the full time period to sue is unfair.Don’t know your Rep’s phone # or e-mail?Go to www.WhereDoIVoteMA.com.Type in your address.
