Peterson Scholarship Highlighted in SL Trib Article on Loan Registry

April 26, 2010 by Barry Scholl

An April 25 Salt Lake Tribune article on the legal controversy surrounding the loan registry system known as MERS prominently mentions the scholarship of Christopher Peterson, a professor at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, and also includes an interview with Peterson.

MERS, an acronym for Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, was created by the nation’s largest lenders in the early 1990s as a mechanism to reduce paperwork and recording fees.  The private computer system allowed lenders to “in effect, put[] loans under MERS’ name, “ thus enabling lenders to “avoid having to file public documents each time a mortgage was bought and sold,” according to the Tribune article.


Peterson, the author of a forthcoming scholarly article on MERS in the University of Cincinnati Law Review, described it as “one of the buried, yet-to-emerge bombs in the whole mortgage crisis.” He also describes MERS as “a tax evasion broker,” that prevents counties from collecting millions in recording fees.
