Many Michigan homeowners who had previously been foreclosed on by MERS (or, more formally, Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc.) had kept their hopes alive based on the recent Michigan Court of Appeals’ decision holding that MERS could not foreclose by advertisement in Michigan.  That decision has now been reversed by the Michigan Supreme Court.

This MERS decision DOES NOT MEAN that every foreclosure in Michigan was legal.  In fact, there are likely thousands of cases in Michigan where the lender did not properly foreclose.  How can you tell?  Just email me at[email protected] and ask for our Foreclosure Analyis Checklist.  We can tell you in just a few minutes whether your foreclosure may have been illegal.
