Absurd Lawmaking: Lenders Can Foreclose Whenever They Want, As Many Times As They Want

Abandonment and Issuing Accounting Statements for Less Than the Amount Owed Allow Foreclosure Lawsuits For Life. That’s Absurd.

Okpa v. Select Portfolio Servicing Inc., No. 21-11270 (5th Cir. June 30, 2022)

REPUBLISHED BY LIT: JUL 10, 2022

Before Southwick, Oldham, and Wilson, Circuit Judges. Per Curiam:*

This case originated in state court as a dispute between a homeowner and mortgage lenders.

The lenders removed the case to federal court under 28 U.S.C. § 1441(b).

The district court granted summary judgment to the lenders.

We affirm.

Ejike Okpa was the owner of a property in Dallas County, Texas.

LIT: THAT’S QUESTIONABLE, BASED ON THE FACT THE EX-WIFE IS RECEIVING ALL THE SERVICER DEFAULT PAPERWORK, AND SHE APPARENTLY LIVES IN ILLINOIS

The property was encumbered by a mortgage assigned to Bank of New York Mellon (“BONY”) and serviced by Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. (“SPS”).

WHY DOES THE SUMMARY NOT INCLUDE THE HISTORY OF THE 2 PRIOR REMOVALS? Y’ALL ARE ONLY DISCUSSING ONE AND WE KNOW THE 5TH CIRCUIT LOVES TO LIST EVERY CASE A HOMEOWNER FILES. OH, RIGHT, LAWYERS VILT AND LEBOEUF WERE ON BOTH CASES, SO Y’ALL WON’T VILIFY FRIENDS OF THE COURT.

Okpa defaulted, so the lender accelerated the loan on January 10, 2014.

Under Texas law, the acceleration triggered a four-year limitations period to foreclose on the loan.

See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.035; Holy Cross Church of God in Christ v. Wolf, 44 S.W.2d 562, 567 (Tex. 2001).

The lenders failed to foreclose by January 10, 2018, so Okpa argues that the mortgage must be declared void.

We disagree.

Under Texas law, a lender may unilaterally abandon acceleration of a note, thereby restoring the note to its original condition . . . by sending notice to the borrower that the lender is no longer seeking to collect the full balance of the loan and will permit the borrower to cure its default by providing sufficient payment to bring the note current under its original terms.

Boren v. U.S. Nat’l Bank Ass’n, 807 F.3d 99, 105 (5th Cir. 2015).

We have repeatedly held that a lender’s request for less than the full amount of the loan is sufficient to show abandonment of an acceleration.

See, e.g., Leonard v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, 616 F. App’x 677, 680 (5th Cir. 2015) (per curiam);

Meachum v. Bank of N.Y. Mellon Tr. Co., Nat’l Ass’n, 636 F. App’x 210 (5th Cir. 2016) (per curiam).

And here, the undisputed summary- judgment evidence shows that the lenders repeatedly sent letters demanding less than the full loan amount after January 10, 2014.

Okpa’s principal counterargument is that the lenders’ various post-acceleration statements at least raise a genuine issue of material dispute of fact sufficient to preclude summary judgment.

As we have previously held, however, “where, as here, the surrounding facts are undisputed, abandonment is a question of law.”

Sexton v. Deutsche Bank Nat’l Tr. Co., 731 F. App’x 302, 305–06 (5th Cir. 2018) (per curiam).

And the material facts are undisputed because the lenders’ statements demanded less than the full loan amount.

ABSURD

AFFIRMED.

* Pursuant to 5th Circuit Rule 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5th Circuit Rule 47.5.4.

Okpa v. Select Portfolio Servicing Inc

(3:19-cv-02162)

District Court, N.D. Texas

JUN 28, 2018 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: JUL 10, 2022

Dismissed with Prejudice. The summary of the facts is very dubious and there’s lots of blanks as to the ownership of the servicing, the lack of details regards the acceleration and more. And then there’s the ‘transfer’ of the mortgage upon divorce – yet the requests for loan payments were being sent to the [ex]-wife, again sketchy and questionable summary details. Furthermore, the prior removed federal case is never mentioned in this 2nd lawsuit. Affirmed on Appeal by 5th Cir.

Ekpo was initially represented by Clay Vilt and then he was terminated and replaced by Jason LeBoeuf

Laws In Texas first started as an independent investigative blog about the Financial Crisis and how the Banks and Government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas, relying upon a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. That stated, LIT's Blog has grown tremendously during the three or so years it has been operating and our reach is now nationwide as we expand via our micro-blogs in various states. Join us as we strive to bring back justice and honor to our Judiciary and Government employees, paid for by Citizens.
