Lender Processing Services (LPS) Internal Email Accidentally Leaked in a Fraudclosure Case
4closureFraud.org has received a very interesting court-certified document to share with our readers. An affidavit from Bank of America representative, Kimberly Sue Daley, refers to attached business records. The documents attached to the affidavit included a printout of email exchanges with the LPS Desktop logo.
The conversation evolves like this:
"Yikes! The name of the foreclosing party (HSBC as Trustee for Deutsche Bank Alt-A 2007-BAR1) matches the name on the affidavit of amount owed BUT that name doesn't match what is in our system. It's pretty far into the legal foreclosure process. What should we do now?"
"Hey, no problemo! We have two options; 1) change the name now and possibly be hit with higher homeowner association fees or 2) quit claim deed the home over to the right name after the sale, but that will cost documentary stamp taxes. The doc stamp taxes will probably be less costly than the HOA fees. Please advise."
"Go with the quit claim deed (QCD). After the foreclosure sale to the trust, just deed the home over to Bank of America! Problem solved."

we did an Internal review and see that the investor has requested that we FC in our name, given the point in the FC we are in.
Is this possible? Please provide us with a reliable path to proceed.

Good afternoon Nicholas
This should be corrected by quit claim deed after the sale takes place. Changing the plaintiff at the time of sale may result in significant increase in fees due to the condominium or homeowner association involved in this case. correcting post sale may result in documentary stamp taxes being incurred, but the taxes should be less than the association dues unless the loan is very large. Please note your system and advise us to make this correction when you advise of your bidding instructions
