In the latest smackdown of the big banks making the rounds, namel y JP Morgan Chase Bank, Natl. Assn. v Butler , heroic Judge Arthur Schack puts Fannie Mae in her place more than any other judge I’m currentl y aware of. He takes Fannie to task over a portion of Fannie’s Servicing Guide (Part VIII, Chapter 1, Section 1 0 2 ) t h a t I h a v e a l w a ys f o u n d s h o c k i n gl y a r r o g a n t a n d a t o d d s w i t h t h e l a w .

Schack quotes the whole offending section, but I’ll just give the most arrogant parts:
“Fannie Mae is at all ti mes th e owner of the mo rtga ge note, wheth er the note is in our portfolio or whether we own it as trustee for an MBS trust. In addition, Fannie Mae at all times has possession of and is the holder of the mortgage note, except in the limited circumstances expressly described below. [SNIP]
[Schack italicizes the following section] In any jurisdiction in which our servicer must be the holder of the note in order to conduct the foreclosure, we temporarily transfer our possession of the note to our servicer, effective automatically and immediately before commencement of the foreclosure proceeding. When we transfer our possession, our servicer becomes the holder of the note during the foreclosure proceedings. [SNIP]

[Schack also italicizes the following section] This Guide provision may be relied upon by a court to establish that the servicer conducting the foreclosure proceeding has possession, and is the holder, of the note during the foreclosure proceeding, unless the court is otherwise notified by Fannie Mae.”

Schack correctly concludes that “FANNIE MAE’s Servicing Guide, with its deceptive practices to fool courts, does not supercede New York law.” I had the same thought when I first encountered this fiat decree of Fannie Mae’s when researching my own lawsuit against Fannie Mae and others a couple of years ago. It is a relief to hear a judge articulate this so starkly. However, I am somewhat dismayed to read that Schack refers to Fannie Mae as the “owner” of the note and mortgage throughout his decision. Schack appears to be relying on affidavits from Fannie Mae/Chase types for this information, as he must. I haven’t read the affidavits on which Schack relied, but I have read information from Fannie Mae’s own trust documentation and website that puts the lie to the idea that Fannie Mae owns anything .

Fannie Mae Tells Us It Owns Nothing
A PDF from Fannie Mae’s own website entitled “Basics of Fannie Mae MBS” explains Fannie Mae’s lack of ownership very simply and succinctly: NOTE: Double Click on Icon to Left to View Doc “In gen eral, mo rtg age-backed securities a re commonly called “MBS” or “Pools” but they can also be called “mortgag e pass-through certificates.”
