Plaintiffs Failed to Allege Facts Sufficient to Set Aside the Foreclosure Sale After the Expiration of the Statutory Redemption Period

By Ebube Okoli

The court in deciding Glover v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 149354 (E.D. Mich. 2013) granted defendant’s motion to dismiss plaintiffs’ complaint pursuant to F.R.C.P. 12(b)(6).

All of the plaintiffs’ claims stemmed from the defendant’s purported refusal to modify the plaintiffs’ mortgage obligations due to “title issues.” However, the plaintiffs’ allegations did not support their claims because the parties entered into a modification agreement in October of 2010. Consequently, since the defendant did in fact grant the plaintiffs a loan modification, the court found that their claim lacked any factual support suggesting that the defendant was liable to plaintiffs.

Additionally, the court noted that the plaintiffs had failed to allege facts sufficient to set aside the foreclosure sale after the expiration of the statutory redemption period. Once the redemption period following a foreclosure of a parcel of real property has expired, the former owner’s rights in and title to the property are extinguished.

The court dismissed the plaintiff’s claims.
