Please check back for updates.Recession fears filled Wall Street on Wednesday as the Dow Jones crashed, falling more than 800 points and the 10-year treasury yield briefly broke the two-year rate for the first time since 2005—an economic marker that has often proved a forerunner of recessions in times past. CNBC reports that there have been five inversions of the 2-year and 10-year yields since 1978. A recession followed each inversion. However, data shows that those recessions began on average 22 months after the initial inversion. “Historically, an inverted yield curve is a significant sign that points to the development of an economic slowdown in the near to medium term,” said Five Star Global President & CEO Ed Delgado. “This latest development is another in a series of economic markers that support the possibility of a future recessionary cycle.”The numbers out of Wall Street were dire: the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 800.49 points, S&P 500 fell 2.9%, and the Nasdaq declined 3%. President Donald Trump, who sent a series of tweets Wednesday, said the following on the economy: “Spread is way too much as other countries say THANK YOU to clueless Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve. Germany, and many others, are playing the game! CRAZY INVERTED YIELD CURVE! We should easily be reaping big Rewards & Gains, but the Fed is holding us back. We will Win!”China—the world’s second-largest economy—reported its weakest growth in 17 years, as its industrial output slowed to 4.8% in July. Germany’s GDP shrank by 0.1% between April and June, and the Euro zone GDP grew by just 0.2% from the prior quarter. Trump, however, announced plans to delay tariffs on Chinese goods, reversing plans to enact a 10% tariff on $300 million worth of Chinese goods. Tariffs were expected to begin September 1. Gerry Frigon, president and chief investment officer at Taylor Frigon Capital Management, said that research suggests that investors make the most mistakes after down turns, which is “akin to jumping off a ship in the middle of a hurricane.” “If, however, investors base their strategies not on timing cycles but on the real source of most of the great wealth created for families in this country for the past hundred years, the ownership of shares in successful businesses for a period of years or even decades, then they should both expect interim volatility and be prepared to weather it,” Frigon said. He added that there will always be ebbs and flows within the economy, and they shouldn’t influence business decisions. “In the short run, powerful forces can move stocks around the way hurricane winds toss debris,” Frigon said.  Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

It is reprinted with permission.The First DCA rendered an opinion this month wherein it certified conflict with the Third DCA over a condominium unit owner’s liability for association assessments and liens pursuant to § 718.116(1)(a), Fla. Stat., which pertains to a. Coastal Creek Condo. Ass’n, Inc. v. Fla Tr. Services LLC, 1D18-1457, 2019 WL 3114229, at *1 (Fla. 1st DCA July 16, 2019). In Coastal Creek, the mortgagors defaulted on their loan, the bank foreclosed and Homes HQ, LLC purchased the property at the foreclosure sale. Homes HQ transferred the property to FLA Trust Services LLC. Thereafter, Coastal Creek Condominium Association (“the Association”) recorded a lien against the property for unpaid “assessments and related expenses” and filed a lawsuit against FLA Trust and the tenants of the property seeking to foreclose its lien for delinquent assessments due since August 15, 2015.FLA Trust Services, LLC responded to the claims and filed a counterclaim. The counterclaim sought a declaration as to which party was responsible for assessments and expenses incurred from July 2007, a time period which included the original mortgagors’ ownership. Both FLA Trust and the Association moved for summary judgment. The disputed issue was whether § 718.116(1)(a) limited FLA Trust’s liability solely to “assessments that came due during Homes HQ’s ownership” or also assessments that came due during the original mortgagor’s ownership. The pertinent portion of §718.116 reads as follows:“A unit owner…is liable for all assessments which come due while he or she is the unit owner. Additionally, a unit owner is jointly and severally liable with the previous owner for all unpaid assessments that came due up to the time of transfer of title …”The trial court analyzed prior cases which interpreted § 718.116(1)(a) and surmised under those cases the court was required to find § 718.116(1)(a) limited FLA Trust’s joint and several liability to assessments that came due during the Homes HQ’s ownership and did not include assessments that came due during the original owners’ ownership. The Association appealed that ruling to the First DCA.On appeal, the First DCA discussed amendments to § 718.116(1)(a) which were made shortly after several Third DCA cases, imposed limitations to the present owner’s liability under its interpretation of the statute. The First DCA explained that reference to “the previous owner” in § 718.116(1)(a) did not pertain to the period of ownership during which the present owner is liable, as suggested by the Third DCA and FLA Trust; rather, the phrase identified the person with whom the present owner has joint and several liability. The Court explained the phrase “all unpaid assessments that came due up to the time of transfer of title” was key and supported an interpretation that the present owner’s liability for unpaid assessments was not limited to that of only the previous owner under § 718.116(1)(a).The First DCA concluded the amendments to the statute and its unambiguous language made it clear the legislature intended the present owner would be “…liable with the previous owner for unpaid assessments that came due during the ownership of both the previous owner (unless it was the association) and the original owner.” In so ruling, the First DCA reversed judgment for FLA Trust, entered judgment in favor of the Association and certified conflict with the Third DCA to the extent that Court held § 718.116(1)(a) limited a current owner’s liability “to unpaid assessments that came due during the ownership of the immediate prior owner, and not the original owner.”last_img read more

CFPB Proposes Plan to Avoid Foreclosure Surge

first_img Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) COVID-19 Dave Uejio Forbearance Foreclosures Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Regulation X RESPA Servicers 2021-04-05 Eric C. Peck Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Proposes Plan to Avoid Foreclosure Surge  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Eric C. Peck The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has proposed changes intended to help prevent impending foreclosure actions as the emergency federal foreclosure protections are eventually set to expire. There are nearly 2.5 million homeowners currently in forbearance plans according to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), and in order to prevent a windfall of foreclosures that may overwhelm servicers, the CFPB’s has proposed a number of actions.“The nation has endured more than a year of a deadly pandemic and a punishing economic crisis. We must not lose sight of the dangers so many consumers still face,” said CFPB Acting Director Dave Uejio. “Millions of families are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure in the coming months, even as the country opens back up. Last week, we warned that servicers need to be prepared for a high volume of borrowers exiting forbearance, and today, we are proposing additional guardrails and tools for servicers as they navigate the coming months. We will do everything in our power to ensure servicers work with struggling families to find solutions that prevent avoidable foreclosures.”The number of homeowners behind on their mortgage has doubled since the beginning of the pandemic, as 6% of mortgages were delinquent as of December 2020. More homeowners are behind on their mortgages than at any time since 2010, the peak of the Great Recession. Industry data suggest that nearly 1.7 million borrowers will exit forbearance programs in September and the following months, with many of them a year or more behind on their mortgage payments. The CFPB’s proposal, “Protections for Borrowers Affected by the COVID-19 Emergency Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Regulation X” looks to mitigate through the following actions:Grant borrowers time: To make sure borrowers aren’t rushed into foreclosure when an unprecedented number of borrowers exit forbearance, the proposed rule would provide a special pre-foreclosure review period that would generally prohibit servicers from starting foreclosure until after December 31, 2021. The CFPB is seeking public input on that date, as well as whether there are more limited ways to achieve the same purpose.Provide servicers with options: The CFPB’s proposal would permit servicers to offer certain streamlined loan modification options to borrowers with COVID-19-related hardships based on the evaluation of an incomplete application. Normally, with certain exceptions, Regulation X requires servicers to review a borrower for all available options at once, which can mean borrowers have to submit more documents before a servicer can make a decision. Allowing this flexibility could allow servicers to get borrowers into an affordable mortgage payment faster, with less paperwork for both the servicer and the borrower. This provision would only be available for modifications that do not increase a borrower’s monthly payment and that extend the loan’s term by no more than 40 years from the modification’s effective date.Keep borrowers informed of options: The CFPB is proposing temporary changes to certain required servicer communications to make sure that, during this crisis, borrowers receive key information about their options at the appropriate time.The CFPB forecasts that if current trends continue, there may be nearly 1.7 million loans at least 90 days delinquent come September 2021. Foreclosures have an average cost to borrowers of at least $12,500, with neighboring homes also losing value, and sale prices dropping by 1%-1.6% after nearby foreclosure sales. And according to a March CFPB report, Black and Hispanic homeowners were more than two times as likely to be behind on housing payments as of December 2020.Public comments on the CFPB’s proposed rule are due Monday, May 10, 2021.

Senior Counsel Pradeep Jetly submitted on instructions that a decision has been taken by the Respondents to the effect that those consignments of onions which were loaded prior to issuance of the said notification will be allowed to be exported. At this stage, Senior Advocate Darius Shroff arguing on behalf of the petitioners submitted that the goods of the petitioners are yet to be loaded. In the meantime, the validity of shipping bills will lapse on September 26. The bench observed-“It appears that the consignments of the Petitioners were with the customs authority prior to issuance of the impugned notification. While we appreciate the decision taken by the Respondents to mitigate the hardship of those exporters where consignments were already loaded for export, we believe that it would be in the interest of justice if the same benefit is extended to the goods of the Petitioners because according to them their consignments were with the customs authority prior to issuance of the notification.”Court clarified that the since the Court is now hearing the matter, validity of shipping bills will not be construed to have lapsed-“We expect a decision to be taken expeditiously as admittedly the goods are perishable. Since the matter is before us, we make it clear that the shipping bills prior to issuance of the impugned notification shall not be construed to have lapsed till we decide the matter. Mr. Jetly, learned Sr. Counsel shall obtain instructions from the Respondents and thereafter appraise the Court on the next date.”The matter will now be heard on September 29.The petition states-“Petitioners are challenging the notification issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Commerce and Industry on September 14 whereby onion exports have been prohibited and transitional provisions in case of change of policy applicable under Foreign Trade policy 2015-20 are made inapplicable to the purported prohibition of the export of Onions and the arbitrary and illegal action of the Directorate General of Foreign Trade and The Commissioner of Customs in preventing the exports of the first petitioner’s members and second petitioner, even after the registration of the shipping bill in the system.” Moreover, the petitioners have also submitted how the said notification will further add to the farmer’s burden -“Members of the first petitioner procure the goods from the farmers from all over Maharashtra etc and are able to give a fair and good price to the farmer’s goods which are meant for the export market. It is a known fact that the farmers are in a financial crisis since they are not able to get a good price for their produce locally and there is always surplus stock which, for all these years are freely allowed to be exported and the country earned valuable Foreign Exchange. In any case the total export of onion accounts only 20% of the total produce of the country. The sudden and abrupt passing of the impugned notification dated September 14 has also blocked the avenue of the farmers to receive fair price for their produce and it would further add to the financial crisis of the farmers in Maharashtra.”Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Startup sues Zillow for suppressing lower-fee listings

first_img Message* Share via Shortlink Email Address* Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Rex CEO Jack Ryan and Zillow CEO Rich Barton. (Jack Ryan via LinkedIn, Rich Barton via Zillow Group)A startup brokerage hit Zillow Group with an antitrust lawsuit on Tuesday, alleging the listing giant stifles competition and ultimately leaves consumers stuck with high commission fees.Rex — Real Estate Exchange, a VC-backed brokerage based in Austin — claims that Zillow recently made changes to its website that prevent buyers from seeing all available listings, including lower-fee listings from independent firms.In a statement, Rex CEO Jack Ryan, a former Goldman Sachs executive, said Zillow has backtracked on its mission to help consumers and instead is “focusing on their own profits,” Bloomberg News reported.Read moreZillow launches brokerage NAR hit with antitrust lawsuit https://therealdeal.com/la/2020/07/29/nar-pockets-win-in-resi-listings-antitrust-case/?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=after_article&utm_campaign=related_article National Association of RealtorsReal Estate LawsuitsResidential Real Estatezillow Tags Rex’s suit is the latest front in a battle that’s been playing out in the residential brokerage industry over its traditional commission structure. Last year, the National Association of Realtors settled a Justice Department complaint accusing it of reducing competition.Rex, which has attracted $135.5 million from investors since 2015, uses machine learning to market homes and as a result says it’s able to charge sellers lower fees. (Rather than the typical 5 percent to 6 percent, it charges an average of 3.3 percent of the sales price.) The company claims it has saved homeowners $30 million to date.The complaint focuses on Zillow’s website redesign this fall, which coincided with its launch of a national brokerage. At the time, Zillow said it obtained broker licenses to facilitate its iBuying, or instant home-buying, business.In January, Zillow also said it would start taking listings data via an IDX feed, which transmits listings directly from multiple listing services (MLSs), instead of the patchwork of agreements it had in place with hundreds of brokerages.To comply with NAR’s co-mingling rules, Zillow had to display non-IDX listings, such as those that are for-sale-by-owner, on a separate page. Those include Rex listings, since the company does not market homes on the MLS.In the complaint, Rex said it saw a steep drop in the number of views its listings get on Zillow, and called the website redesign deceptive and a violation of antitrust laws.“Consumers — buyers and sellers — now experience reduced choice in transacting real estate,” Rex said in the complaint. “Competition from Rex, which allows buyers and sellers to lower commissions to get more home for their money, is suppressed and it loses customers.”In a statement, Zillow defended the way listings are displayed and said it made changes to its site to comply with NAR rules. “We are aware of the lawsuit and believe the claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend ourselves against it,” Zillow said.NAR did not respond to a request for comment.[Bloomberg News] – E.B.
