Several others reclaimed other nearby vacant Caltrans houses in the following days. The group released a list of demands, including turning publicly-owned vacant properties into housing, freezing rents and other measures.“With this health crisis and this housing crisis we need every vacant house to be a home for those who don’t have a safe and stable place to sleep in,” Gordillo said at a press conference in front of one of the houses on Wednesday.Nearly 60,000 people in Los Angeles and nearly 550 in Pasadena are living in unsheltered locations or temporary shelters on any given night, according to the 2019 homeless counts. Numbers from the 2020 count have not yet been released.According to Los Angeles Times reporter Liam Dillon, Caltrans released this statement on Thursday: “We are aware of the situation, and Caltrans is currently in discussions regarding the use of these properties.”On Monday, eight state legislators sent a letter to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, asking him to use the empty Caltrans houses as immediate rapid rehousing for the homeless in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. The signatories included Assemblymembers Richard Bloom, David Chiu, Sharon Quirk-Silva, Buffy Wicks, Rob Bonta and Mark Stone and state Senators Scott Wiener and Lena Gonzalez.Notably, state legislators for the El Sereno and Pasadena areas, including state Senator Anthony Portantino, Assemblymember Chris Holden, Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo and state Senator Maria Elena Durazo did not sign the letter, and the governor has not yet responded.“We urge you to take all steps necessary to immediately make these homes available for occupancy in a fair and systematic way,” they wrote in the letter, which also announced the formation of the California Legislative COVID-19 Housing and Homelessness Urgent Action Group. “The confluence of burgeoning homelessness, widespread layoffs, the housing affordability crisis and the healthcare emergency brought on by the COVID-19 emergency, the impact on those who are already homeless and those who are most at risk: economically disadvantaged Californians, requires us to act boldly and rapidly.”LA Mayor Eric Garcetti said he “asked Caltrans to see whether or not [LA’s] housing authority might be able to get that house and many other houses, and make that affordable housing for folks that today need that, or who are homeless. But that will require state action.”On Tuesday, the LA City Council passed new protections against evictions and foreclosures in an effort to mitigate the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.“Impacted by the housing crisis, and feeling even more urgency in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, we are reclaiming vacant houses owned by the state to fight for housing as a human right,” the Reclaiming Our Homes group wrote on its website. “We the Reclaimers are calling on the city and state to immediately use all vacant properties to house people. We need all levels of government to make a massive investment in public and social housing so that everyone has a home during this housing and public health crisis.”A large group of supporters held a demonstration in front of 3135 Sheffield Ave., Los Angeles, on Saturday and helped carry in furniture and beautify the front yard. Meanwhile, six California Highway Patrol officers watched the scene from across the street but did not intervene. Earlier on Saturday morning, however, two organizers were arrested for entering another vacant Caltrans house on Sheffield.“We are urging for vacant houses to be homes for these unhoused folks—now,” Gordillo said in a press conference in front of the house on Saturday.Caltrans purchased and acquired through eminent domain about 460 properties in El Sereno, South Pasadena and Pasadena in the 1960s and 70s with the goal of tearing them down to build first a surface freeway and then a tunnel freeway connecting the 710 and 210 freeways. In October, Newsom signed a bill into law effectively killing the freeway extension, including the tunnel, making the properties surplus and thus subject to sale.Caltrans has said it is preparing to sell the houses in three phases since 2015, but so far very few houses have been sold. According to the Roberti Bill, existing tenants are supposed to be offered first right of refusal to buy their homes at an affordable rate. In 2019, Caltrans tried to implement inappropriately inflated sales prices for Phase 1 tenants, but Pasadena attorney Christopher Sutton sued on behalf of three tenants and won.Caltrans defied that court order by implementing “emergency regulations” enabling them to impose the inflated sales prices. Those regulations expired in November and Sutton’s lawsuit to ensure that the tenants are offered an affordable price for their homes continues. The next trial-setting hearing in that case was rescheduled to April 21 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.At a community forum in Pasadena in November focusing on what to do with the 50 acres of land known as the 710 freeway “ditch” near California Blvd., Caltrans District 7 Director John Bulinski claimed Sutton’s lawsuit is what’s preventing Caltrans from selling the remaining houses. Sutton disputes this, saying nothing is preventing Caltrans from moving forward and following the law.Meanwhile, more than 160 houses remain empty in the 710 Corridor, many of them for years and all of them falling into disrepair. Reclaiming Our Homes advocates say unused public property such as the vacant Caltrans homes should be used for public good in these extraordinary times.“It is never the wrong time to do the right thing,” wrote the United Caltrans Tenants (UCT) coordinating committee in an email. “Please reach out and meet the Reclaimers, all of whom were homeless and/or housing insecure prior to reclaiming the empty homes. Now these formerly empty homes, which made our streets feel like blighted ghost towns, are filled with families and people who are loving on these homes and our community. We hope you will embrace our new neighbors, volunteer and support housing those in need, especially in this time.”UCT said all volunteers are following social distancing protocols.The group was inspired by a similar action earlier this year by two homeless mothers in Oakland called Moms 4 Housing, who were ultimately successful following a standoff with police, according to L.A. Taco.“The months-long standoff in Oakland between two unhoused mothers and a development company based in Redondo Beach resulted in a militarized police eviction that attracted over 25 sheriff’s deputies and left the mothers in handcuffs, but ultimately ended in victory after Wedgewood Properties made a ‘good faith agreement’ to sell the property to Oakland’s Community Land Trust,” Lexis-Olivier Ray wrote.

House-hunting fiascos and heroics aside, the mortgage-closing process itself can be a drawn-out and overwhelming journey through mountains of paperwork. In 2014, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a report identifying key issues in the mortgage-closing process and positioning electronic mortgage closing as a solution. The CFPB went on to conduct a four-month eClosing pilot program to test its theory. Looking back now, it is unsurprising that the study found that “eClosing borrowers in our pilot scored higher than paper borrowers on our measures of empowerment at closing, perceived understanding, and efficiency.”Indeed, there are many efficiencies resulting from an eClosing process, much easier access to documents prior to closing, a reduced number of days between approval and closing, and the ease of proving compliance with the numerous regulatory requirements, just to name a few. So, how do we escape paper closing and evolve to eClosing platforms? The bland answer is federal and state legislation and the mortgage industries’ response. But it’s really more interesting than that. First, cue existing statutes that make eClosings possible. In fact, the legal basis for establishing the equivalence of electronic records and signatures to traditional paper records and wet-ink signatures already was available: the federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) and the various state adaptions of the model Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA). These statutes provide that records and signatures relating to transactions cannot be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because they are in an electronic form or because an electronic signature or electronic record is used in their formation. Once the “eNote” has been electronically created and signed by the borrower at the eClosing in compliance with ESIGN and UETA, it is tamper-sealed, deposited into a secure electronic vault (called the “eVault”). That eNote is then referred to as the “Authoritative Copy.”Second, to make eClosings a viable option, the mortgage-backed securities industry (the ultimate source of funds for many mortgage loans) had to be on board. This industry was built in reliance on the negotiability of paper promissory notes and the ability to take title free of claims or defenses by previous holders in the chain of title. Luckily, ESIGN/UETA come to the rescue again. These statutes create a new type of payment intangible called “transferable records.” Under ESIGN/UETA, a “Transferable Record” (also called the eNote) is an electronic record that would be a promissory note under Article 3 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), if it was in writing, and for which the issuer (i.e., the borrower) has expressly agreed is a Transferrable Record. Like a paper promissory note, a Transferable Record can be freely and unconditionally transferred. It even is possible for an owner to achieve the coveted super-priority status of a holder in due course. ESIGN/UETA accomplishes this by creating a new concept of “control.” Control of a Transferable Record is used as a substitute for traditional (UCC) “possession” of a written promissory note. A person having control of a Transferable Record (called the “Controller”) is afforded the same rights and benefits of a holder under the UCC of a paper promissory note. Most importantly, the Controller is entitled to enforce the Transferable Record/eNote and, provided certain requirements are met, can take title free and clear of all other claims.Third, to make the eClosing process fit within the existing industry framework, where loans regularly are bought and sold, there had to be an efficient way to keep track of the Transferable Record. MERS addresses this need via the MERS® eRegistry. The MERS eRegistry is the authorized, centralized system of record for evidencing the transfer of interests in a Transferable Record, which can readily and accurately establish the identity of the person entitled to payment. Specifically, eNotes are registered in the MERS® eRegistry at origination. The MERS eRegistry identifies the party that has Control of the Transferable Record/eNote, the location of the Authoritative Copy of the eNote, and stores the unique digital signature (hash value) of the eNote. Fourth, eClosings never would be accepted in the industry unless the courts agreed that an eNote was enforceable after default. There are only a few reported appellate decisions on this topic. The key takeaways are that a plaintiff seeking to enforce an eNote must establish, with evidence: (1) that it is the Controller (or acting on behalf of the Controller); (2) it has control of the Authoritative Copy of the eNote; and (3) the transfer history of the eNote from origination to the current Controller (typically reflected on the MERS eRegistry). Litigants also will need to convince courts that this new type of evidence is sufficient, in lieu of the longstanding evidence necessary for the enforcement of a paper promissory note (delivery, possession, and endorsement).This article provides a high-level overview of the primary statutes and industry efforts which, taken together, make eClosings possible. However, certain holes need to be filled before the eClosing process can be fully digitized, including state-wide remote online notarization (RON) and county-wide e-recording. Currently, only 22 states have statutes permitting RON and many counties do not recognize or accept electronic records. Once these final steps are completed, fully digitized eClosings could be a reality for consumers, as well as for the industry as a whole.

Experts warn bus driver over slim chances in courtOn 13 Jul 2004 in Personnel Today A bus driver sacked for being a member of the far-right British NationalParty (BNP) is unlikely to have a case for unfair dismissal, according to legalexperts. Arthur Redfearn is taking legal advice after being dismissed by WestYorkshire Transport Service less than three weeks after his election toBradford Council. The private company, which runs services for the council and the NHS, saidit was “incompatible” for a BNP member to be transporting largenumbers of Asians every day. But lawyers believe the fact Redfearn had been employed for less than a yearsignificantly reduces his chances of bringing an unfair dismissal claim. David Gibson, solicitor at law firm Dickinson Dees, said: “Unless hecould show other forms of discrimination then it will be difficult to bring aclaim.” However, Michael Ball, employment law partner at Halliwells, said thatRedfearn could have a case under racial discrimination legislation, in whichlength of service is irrelevant. He said the fact the employer referred to the “vast proportion” ofpeople using the service as being Asian could be significant, and a tribunalcould ask whether they would have treated him the same way if the bus servicehad predominantly white passengers.
