A BIT MORE ON US Mortgage Fraud ( By the Banks not the borrowers)

Naked Capitalism Link

This link refers to cases where syndicated mortgages have not been properly conveyed in the US
I am looking for instances in the UK where I am suspicious that similar misdeeds abound.

These improper syndicated Mortgage pools are driving the Foreclosure( repossession) Agenda and the longer term sensible work out of short term problems for borrowers cut  loose in a Mortgage Desert of the the banks own design is adding insult to injury. The actions of the Banks in saving themselves are being placed above the Law and there is little protection if any by government of the ordinary Borrower \ tax payer.

  1. Perhaps the biggest problem has been the packaging and repackaging of rights that go with mortgages. Notes (the loan, meaning the cash flow) can be and often were sold several times before they were sliced and diced into securities, which means identifying the actual lender (in the absence of proper land records) is generally impossible. This structure has necessitated the growth of yet another layer of opacity between the borrower and the “lender” – the servicer. Complicating the matter still further, servicing rights are also sold, often multiple times. These organizations have “bare legal” right to act as agents for the mysterious owners of the note, which in practice they have interpreted broadly as having substantially most of the rights of lenders, particularly in initiating foreclosure. The fact that servicers make more in fees from foreclosing than they do from solvent lenders (they are paid transactionally) completes the picture.

    It is, in short, an unholy mess.
