United States Court of Appeals
For the Eighth Circuit

___________________________
No. 12-2146
___________________________
Dirk Beukes; Gesina Beukes, individuals,
Plaintiffs – Appellants,

v.

GMAC Mortgage, LLC, as Successor in Interest to
Homecomings Financial, LLC; Mortgage Electronic
Registration Systems, Inc., a Delaware Corporation;
Federal National Mortgage Association; John & Jane
Does, 1-10,
Defendants – Appellees.
____________

Appeal from United States District Court
for the District of Minnesota – Minneapolis

After refinancing a home mortgage in 2007, Beukes, mailed a notice of rescission in 2010, which was rejected. Beukes stopped making payments. Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS), as nominee for the lender, published notices of a mortgage foreclosure sale. MERS ultimately purchased the property at a foreclosure sale. Beukes sued, seeking rescission and damages under the Truth in Lending Act, 15 U.S.C. 1635(a), claiming that the amount disclosed as the finance charge on the loan understated the amount they were actually charged by $944.31. The district court dismissed. The Eighth Circuit held an appeal pending the Supreme Court’s decision in Jesinoski v. Countrywide Home Loans, (2015), then affirmed the dismissal. Because Beukes mailed notice within three years, the right of rescission had not expired, but the finance charge disclosed in 2007 did not vary from the actual finance charge by more than one-half of one percent of the total amount financed, so it must be treated as accurate. Therefore, the right to rescind expired three business days after delivery of the disclosures. Beukes did not timely attempt to exercise any expanded right to rescind arising from section 1635(i)(2) that might have been available after the initiation of foreclosure proceedings.

  1. Dave Krieger says:

    It appears the misstep by the Borrowers was that they filed their action BEFORE foreclosure proceedings started and not AFTER they had started; thus, the 8th Circuit applied the latter of the two variances under TILA. This now becomes a procedural issue for all to examine.

  2. sf mortgage insider says:

    The “people” are getting railroaded, they are subjected to Kangaroo Courts, the Judges are paid off, the lawyers lie and America is dead center of the vortex of a coup.

  3. Kate Smith says:

    I would say the mistake was allowing the court to make any argument about the validity of the TILA rescission at all. The bank did not challenge it within the 20 days window and it was considered settled at the time it was mailed. Would that be considered res judicata?
