GENERAL ALLEGATIONS

In the main claim between the parties, Counterclaim Defendant attempts to foreclose a mortgage (hereinafter “the mortgage”) which it claims it holds.

The mortgage is a “federally related mortgage loan” within meaning of 12 C.F.R. §1024.2(b) because it is a loan that was:

Secured by a first or subordinate lien on residential real property upon which there was located, or following settlement, was to be constructed using proceeds of the loan, a structure designed principally for occupancy of one to four families; and either was:

Made in whole or in part by a lender that was either regulated by or whose deposits or accounts were insured by an agency of the federal government;

Made in whole or in part, or was insured, guaranteed, or assisted in some way by the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (hereinafter “HUD”) or any other officer or agency of the federal government; or, under or in connection with a housing or urban development program administrated by the Secretary of HUD or a housing or related program administered by any other officer or agency of the federal government;

Intended to be sold by the originating lender to the Federal National Mortgage Association, the Government National Mortgage Association, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (or its successors), or a financial institution from which the loan is to be purchased by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (or its successors);

Made in whole or in part by a “creditor” as defined in section 103(g) of the Consumer Credit Protection Act that made or invested in residential real estate loans aggregating more than $1,000,000.00 per year; or

Was originated either by a dealer or by a mortgage broker.

Counterclaim Defendant is a “servicer” within meaning of 12 C.F.R. §1024.2(b) because it is a “person” responsible for servicing a federally related mortgage loan.

Thirty-seven days before any foreclosure sale was scheduled with respect to the mortgage, Counterclaim Defendant received from Counterclaim Plaintiffs a complete loss mitigation application as the term is used in 12 C.F.R. §1024.41(b)(1).

Despite receiving Counterclaim Plaintiffs’ complete loss mitigation application thirty-seven days before any foreclosure sale was scheduled with respect to the mortgage, Counterclaim Defendant moved for a foreclosure judgment or order of sale, even though:

Counterclaim Defendant did not send Counterclaim Plaintiffs a notice that Counterclaim Plaintiffs were not eligible for any loss mitigation options or where such notice was sent but:

The appeal process in 12 C.F.R. §1024.41(h) was applicable;

Counterclaim Plaintiffs had requested an appeal within the applicable time period for requesting an appeal; and

Counterclaim Plaintiffs’ appeal had not been denied;

Counterclaim Plaintiffs had not rejected all loss mitigation options offered by Counterclaim Defendant; and

Counterclaim Plaintiffs failed to perform under an agreement on a loss mitigation option.

Consequently, Counterclaim Defendant has violated the express provisions of 12 C.F.R. §1024.41(g).

All conditions precedent to the filing of this action has occurred or has been waived.

Counterclaim Plaintiffs have retained the law firm of WeidnerLaw, P.A. to represent them in this matter and are obligated to pay said law firm a reasonable fee for its services.
