Residential Mortgage Litigation Enforcement

Join us for this Knowledge Group Residential Mortgage Litigation Enforcement Webinar. Secondary Investors in the Residential Mortgage Market continue to seek and issue demands for repurchase and indemnification for allegedly defective mortgages and continue to demonstrate that they are willing to initiate litigation in order to further pursue and enforce those demands. While many of these demands stem from the fall-out of the mortgage crisis in this country, the demands are not unique to that time period; legacy loans made post-crisis continue to plague brokers and lenders. In addition, recent changes and updates to the GSE’s representations and warranties framework are having an impact on how investors pursue these demands. With so many claims being litigated in such a wide variety of jurisdictions, the landscape of residential mortgage litigation continues to change on an almost weekly, if not daily, basis. 

In this two-hour Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the important aspects as well as recent developments on Residential Mortgage Litigation and Enforcement. Speakers will also offer an update on current large-scale investor-led litigation, as well as litigation settlement strategies and a discussion on third party litigation and recovery efforts.

Key topics include:

  • Basis for mortgage repurchase and indemnification litigation
  • Avoiding and/or mitigating litigation
  • Basis for a repurchase or indemnification demand
  • Current litigation trends & hot topics
    • The statute of limitations debate and applicable case law
    • Causation and materiality issues
    • Unilateral attorneys’ fee provisions
    • Implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing
  • Status of current investor-led litigation
  • Litigation settlement strategies
