A different kind of foreclosure battle
This final note today, in which the foreclosure shoe is on the other foot. You know how we were explaining earlier how some of the big banks have been caught mishandling paperwork and foreclosing on people who shouldn’t have been? Well, bad paperwork cuts the other way too.
One Patrick Rodgers of Philadelphia, Penn., got into a disagreement with his mortgage lender Wells Fargo over insurance requirements. The bank didn’t answer his letter within the time period required by law, so Rodgers took ’em to court. He won, the bank still blew him off, so he’s filed for a sheriff’s lien and foreclosure of the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Office in Philadelphia.
