A copy of a “GAP MORTGAGE” dated August 13, 2007, on the subject
real property given by John A. Gallo to Option One Mortgage
Corporation, which refers to the note of August 13, 2007 in the sum
of $27,555.49. The gap mortgage was recorded on October 18, 2007.
A copy of an allonge, which refers to the note dated August 13,
2007, made by John A. Gallo, and states that the loan amount of
A consolidated note dated August 13, 2007 given by John A. Gallo to
Option One Mortgage Corporation, in the sum of $335,000.00. Said
note recites that it “AMENDS AND RESTATES IN THEIR ENTIRETY, AND IS
GIVEN IN SUBSTITUTION FOR THE NOTES DESCRIBED IN EXHIBIT A OF THE
NEW YORK CONSOLIDATION, EXTENSION, AND MODIFICATION AGREEMENT
[CEMA] DATED THE SAME DATE AS THIS NOTE”.
A copy of the CEMA, dated August 13, 2007, between John A. Gallo,
and the lender One Option Mortgage Corporation, which recites that
the total unpaid principal balance of the notes is $335,000.00, and
that $27,555.49 was advanced to the borrower or on his account,
immediately prior to the consolidation.
An assignment dated November 17, 2007, and recorded on January 31,
2008, by H & R Block Mortgage Corporation to Option One Mortgage
Corporation, of the mortgage pertaining to the subject property
dated and recorded on August 3, 2006 given by John A. Gallo to H &
R Block Mortgage Corporation.
An assignment of the mortgage on the subject property by Sand
Canyon Corporation, formerly known as Option One Mortgage
Corporation to Wells Fargo, dated December 18, 2009, and recorded
on January 11, 2010.
Plaintiff has also submitted an affidavit from Michelle
Halyard, a vice president of American Home Mortgage Servicing Inc.,
who states that this entity is the loan servicing agent and
attorney in fact for Wells Fargo. She states that Mr. Gallo failed
to make all of the monthly payments of due as required by the note
and mortgage, and sets forth the date of default as April 1, 2009
and recites that amounts due for principal, interest, late charges
and advances for taxes, hazard insurance, appraisal and inspections
for a total of $370,428.92. Plaintiff has also submitted a copy of
the May 16, 2008 limited power of attorney appointing Option One
issued in connection with the servicing of certain mortgage loans.
Therefore, as plaintiff may not rely upon the consolidated
note and as it has not established that it was in possession of
the original note at the time it commenced the within action, it
lacks standing to maintain this foreclosure action.
