Court Holds MERS’ Previous Business Activities Prior to Proper Registration in California Did Not Render its Foreclosing Illegal
The court in Perlas et al v. MERS, No. C 09-4500 (N.D.Cal. 2010) held that MERS’ previous business activities prior to becoming registered to do business in California did not render its foreclosing activities illegal.
Despite the plaintiff’s arguments to the contrary, the court noted that since MERS is now registered in California any alleged error had since been retroactively fixed. The Court in delivering their holding also noted that MERS, acting as the lender’s agent, had the authority to initiate non judicial foreclosures.| Permalink
