01 Jun 09 Home Loan Defaults Rise

Home foreclosures have been a major burden on the Inland economy for Southern California. In April, there were almost 5,000 notices of default filed in Riverside County, according to ForeclosureRadar, a tracking service. The notices are the first step in the foreclosure process. The county had the fourth-highest rate of foreclosure sales last month. San Diego and orange County reported an increase in loan modification and default activity as well.  Mortgage relief measures continue to  be a top priority for government officials in California.

San Bernardino County had about 4,000 notices of default and the seventh-highest rate of foreclosure sales in April. The main state foreclosure law to emerge last year was SB 1137. It requires lenders and loan servicers to talk with borrowers before starting foreclosure proceedings. The goal is to get more mortgage loan modifications. This year, lawmakers introduced more than 30 foreclosure- and mortgage-related bills. Nearly all of the authors are members of the Legislature’s Democratic majority. About two-dozen measures are still pending, with most facing a Friday deadline to clear the Legislature’s appropriations panels.

Some of the bills would put the state in compliance with the federal Secure and Fair Enforcement of Mortgage Licensing Act approved in July 2008. The law requires mortgage loan originators to be licensed and complete 20 hours of pre-licensing legislation, along with other requirements.
