2019 was a busy year for the default servicing legal community in New York State that culminated with an eventful month of December. As the year came to a close, state laws were enacted relating to marketing, origination, and management of reverse mortgage products that fall under HUD’s home equity conversion program for seniors; the right of the city, village, or town in which the property is located to commence a court proceeding to compel any mortgagees with completing foreclosure actions on abandoned or vacant properties; and standing defense in foreclosure actions.
The Janeway-LOGS partnership now consists of Janeway Law Firm, P.C., a certified woman-owned law firm serving Colorado since 2004 and affiliated with the LOGS Network since 2013; and Janeway Law Firm, LLC, serving Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington.

2019 was a busy year in New Jersey, with nine new statutes enacted that impact mortgage foreclosure. In addition to these statutes, the Legislature and the Courts are heavily promoting borrowers’ entry into the Court’s sponsored Mediation Program.
Further, the Courts and the Office of Foreclosure introduced a new wrinkle in the Mediation Program in that once a borrower accepts a trial loan modification, the Court will close the case. In a measured effort to remove matters from the Docket, the Court takes the position the case will be considered “settled” upon the borrower’s acceptance of an offer of a trial loan modification.
