SHERIFF SALES STOPPED TO DATE

I was keeping track of the number of Sheriff's Sales stopped, but I decided that this gave the wrong impression to viewers. An attorney should not be consulted as a matter of last resort. Instead an attorney should be consulted early in the process and the sooner an attorney is consulted the more likely a Homeowner will have a favorable result

Evidence of Ratification

The New York law of Trusts states expressly that transactions in violation of the Trust governing documents are void.  Most Courts do not analyze the  the trust documents and simply say that the mortgagor is not a party tovthe PSA and therefore cannot enforce the terms of the PSA.  Those Courts that do lookvfurther into the issue, eventually say that the beneficiaries can ratify the conduct of the Trustee and therefore the failure to comply with yhe PSA renders the transactions merely voidable.  However if one reads the PSA the PSA expressly prohibits the trust from taking any action that would render the trust subject to a tax or invalidate the REMiC.  As such yhe beneficiaries can not ratify these acts or transactions.  In yhe alternative,  shouldn't the Platiff trust be required ro demonstrate thst the beneficiaries actually ratified the act or transaction.
