[2] Testimony of R.K. Arnold President and CEO of MERSCORP, Inc. Before the Subcommittee 11/18/2010


Remarks of R.K. Arnold
President and CEO of MERSCORP, Inc.
Before the
Subcommittee on Housing and Community Opportunity
House Financial Services Committee
November 18, 201

Excerpts:

The MERS database is important to individual borrowers because it provides a free and
accessible resource where borrowers can locate their servicers, and in many cases, learn who
their note-owner is as they change over time.

<SNIP>

To do this, MERS relies on specially designated employees of its members, called
certifying officers, to handle the foreclosure
. To be a MERS certifying officer, one must be an
officer of the member institution who is familiar with the functions to be performed
, and who
has passed an examination administered by MERS. Generally, these are the same individuals
who would handle the foreclosure if the lender was involved without MERS.

In my opinion if this is a correct statement than without reading into the rest we have a problem because you see in the image below these are not designated employees or officer of the “member institution”…but were or are employees of LPS. Not to mention the obvious issues. I am not an attorney.

[1] Testimony of R.K. Arnold President and CEO of MERSCORP, Inc. Before the Senate Committee 11/16/2010

[1] Testimony of R.K. Arnold President and CEO of MERSCORP, Inc. Before the Senate Committee 11/16/2010


Testimony of Mr. R.K. Arnold, 11/16/2010
Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee

Excerpt:

Under the corporate law in Delaware (where MERS is incorporated), there is no requirement that an officer of a corporation also be an employee of that corporation. A corporation is allowed to appoint individuals to be officers without having to employ those individuals or even pay them. This concept is not limited to MERS. Corporations cannot operate without officers; they can and often do operate without employees. It is not uncommon for large organizations to have all its employees employed by an operating company and for those employees to be elected as officers of affiliated companies that are created for other purposes (all corporations are required by law to have officers to act for it). Even for loans where MERS is not the mortgagee, employees of the servicer are generally delegated the power to take actions (e.g., initiate foreclosures) and execute documents (e.g., lien releases and assignments) on behalf of the owner of the loan (and the servicer, in turn, may further delegate such authority to a third-party vendor).

<SNIP>

If the note-owner chooses to have Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. foreclose, then the note-owner endorses the note in blank (if it has not already done so), making it bearer paper, and grants possession of the note to a MERS certifying officer. This makes MERS the noteholder. Since MERS is already the mortgagee in the land records, MERS is now able to legally begin the foreclosure process on behalf of the note-owner.

SFF is in search of “THE AGREEMENT” that might exist between “MERS” and “NOTE-OWNER”, might be an actual Trust or Trustee. But this is not in public records.

MUST WATCH| MERS CEO TESTIMONY BEFORE SENATE BANKING, HOUSING COMMITTEE

MUST WATCH| MERS CEO TESTIMONY BEFORE SENATE BANKING, HOUSING COMMITTEE


Sorry about the quality…had to go with what I had at the time.

NOTE: Mr Arnold said there is 20,000 who sign 7 documents but not in this clip.

  • Ms. Diane E. Thompson Counsel National Consumer Law Center
  • Mr. R. K. Arnold President and CEO Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc

I wish I could have recorded this on HD so everyone can witness some of the lies the Bank Reps were telling. They are really out of touch with reality.

At one point when JPMorgan’s David Lowman began to speak some attendees stood up and yelled, then escorted out the room after a brief pause.

<SNIP>

SHELBY: I CAN SEE WHO OWNS THE MORTGAGE?

ARNOLD: There is no assignment if MERS is the Mortgagee

SHELBY: THATS WHERE I’M GETTING…

Can’t type fast…so you can make do!
