Real Property
Walking through Mortgage Loan Modification and Dual-tracking in Real World Scenarios, with specific analysis of Minn. Stat. 582.043, Minn. Stat. 58.13, and associated case law

Jonathan L. R. Drewes will take a deep dive into the rights of a homeowner trying to protect a homestead from foreclosure through an attempt at a loan modification, or alternative “loss mitigation” options. Since 2013, Minnesota’s "Homeowner’s Bill of Rights,” Minn. Stat. 582.043, has provided rights and fee-shifting to some homeowners facing foreclosure. This statute has unique nuances and limits in its protectionism and has been recently analyzed in both state and federal courts leading to results that may not have been anticipated when the statute was first passed into law. The statute flirts with unanswered constitutional questions concerning counsel on both sides of the arguments and remains the likely subject of future appeals. The statute appears to dovetail with other statutes, such as Minn. Stat. 580.02 and Minn. Stat. 58.13, which potentially increase its reach and impact. This seminar will walk through the choices faced by a homeowner at each stage of the foreclosure/loan modification process, shedding light on the best paths for both debtors' counsel and creditors' counsel.
