2010 Deposition of Erika Lynn Lance from Nationwide Title Clearing

by Neil Garfield

I was recently reminded of this deposition. The witness quite innocently indicts the entire foreclosure process as being extra-legal without realizing it. Extra-legal is merely a phrase used by me and some others to describe something that is not prohibited by statute specifically but is (a) not authorized by law and (b) not consistent with existing laws as to intent and content.

Here we have a witness explaining how documents of assignment and transfer are prepared and recorded without any knowledge of any transactions and without any signature or notarization. While the person whose signature appears not the document knows it is being done, he has no knowledge or power to stop it or to verify that it is correct.

To be clear, the law requires something different. No law allows anyone to prepare, execute, notarize or record a document that is not known, for a fact, to be memorializing some actual event in the real world. No signature is valid unless the signor knows that the document is true and accurate as to what is on it. “authorization” to execute an unknown document is no authorization at all and is an excuse for plausible deniability.

see 06-02-10_Deposition_of_Erika_Lance

Q Okay. Have you been required to take any title
14 courses, real estate title courses?
15 A No. They’re not required for this position.
16 Q Do any of the other employees of Nationwide Title
17 Clearing, are they required to take any type of title, real
18 estate title courses?
19 A No, because most real estate title courses don’t
20 actually apply to what we do here on our side.
Q Okay. Why — why don’t you give me a broad
22 description then of what you do at Nationwide?
23 A We do the paperwork for mortgage companies. Most
24 especially we do Assignments of Mortgage, Lien Releases, and
25 document retrieval and research.
Q And just looking at the document, if you look at
14 the very top left hand corner, it says, “When recorded,
15 return to CitiMortgage”; is that correct?
16 A Yes.
17 Q But — and that is C/O NTC. Is that Nationwide?
18 A Yes.
19 Q Why is the document returned to Nationwide?
20 A One of the service — the service that we did for
21 CitiMortgage had to do with the recording and the tracking
22 of Assignments. So we sent it to record at the county, and
23 then we have that so that it gets returned to us so we could
24 mark that it came back recorded image the document.
In this particular case, this is an
3 electronically recorded Assignment which means that it was
4 sent via electronic recording and returned to us that way.
5 Q Is that inputted — after it’s recorded, is that
6 inputted into the oracle-based system that you referred to
7 earlier? You said you were imaging the documents?
8 A Yeah. I do image the documents. To answer your
9 question, we have an image repository where we keep track of
10 the documents being imaged.
9 Q Okay. So in this particular instance,
10 CitiMortgage was NTC’s client?
11 A Uh-huh.
12 Q And they contacted you to prepare an Assignment
13 of Mortgage; is that correct?
14 A They contacted us to prepare a group of
15 Assignments. It wasn’t just one.
16 Q How many is — let me start all over with that
17 one.
18 In this instance, how many did they ask you — or
19 did they send over at one time?
20 A I don’t have that number.
21 Q Would it be — and I’m not asking you to guess,
22 but if you do have a ballpark, would it have been dozens or
23 hundreds?
24 A Hundreds to thousands but I don’t know in this
25 particular case how many.
I was going to say we’ve done over a hundred
3 thousand Assignments so. . .
4 Q So anywhere from a hundred — from hundreds to a
5 hundred thousand, they would send a request?
6 A They send them in groupings.
7 Q And when you say “they send them in groupings,”
8 that’s requests for Assignments of Mortgages —
9 A Yes.
10 Q — in groupings? Okay.
11 Right underneath the portion we just read,
12 there’s a — a CMI L number.
13 A Uh-huh.
14 Q Do you — can you explain that number?
15 A That’s a CitiMortgage loan number, and the one
16 underneath is the assignee loan number.
17 Q And in this instance, do you know who the
18 assignee is?
19 A Bayview.
20 Q Just under that, on the Corey Assignment that
21 we’ve marked as Exhibit 2 —
22 A Uh-huh.
23 Q — there’s an effective date. How — how is the
24 effective date selected?
25 A It’s given to us by the client.
I don’t know what occurred on it because I was not part of
2 the — the sale or of the agreement between Bayview and
3 Citi. We were hired specifically to do Assignments.
4 Normally, this is an action recording at the
5 county to indicate a sale has taken place or a transfer of
6 loans has taken place from one entity to another.
A I’m trying to figure out how to answer this
16 question. It is my understanding that notes are transferred
17 through a sale agreement between mortgage entities. They
18 record Assignments to put on the record who the current
19 beneficiary is for that note and loan, that mortgage.
20 The — the Assignment itself is not the, to my
21 understanding, the actual sale of the loan. Does that make
22 sense?
Q So then let’s talk a little about what Mr. Bly —
8 what he actually does in executing an Assignment of
9 Mortgage. Can you go through that process with me?
10 A Yeah. He is what we refer to as a signer. He is
11 somebody at Nationwide who is designated to execute
12 documents.
13 Q So just can you give me a general idea of what
14 his — his day-to-day activities would be?
15 A He signs and notarizes documents.
Q Does he actually research any of the information
25 contained in the Assignment of Mortgage?
1 A No.
2 Q No?
3 A No.
4 Q About how many documents, including Assignments
5 of Mortgage, would he sign in the average day?
6 A A couple thousand.
7 Q And — and this — is he permanently employed?
8 Well, let me ask that question in a different way.
9 Is his — his employer — his present employer
10 and business address is Nationwide Title at 2100 Alt. 19
11 North; is that correct?
12 A Yeah. He’s presently a full-time employee with
13 Nationwide Title Clearing.
14 Q Okay. In the assign — the Corey Assignment of
15 Mortgage, he lists his address as 10000 [sic] Technology
16 Drive, O’Fallon, Missouri.
17 Why is that particular address used?
18 A That has to do with the question on how Bryan Bly
19 can sign as a vice president as well.
THE WITNESS: This is a copy of the Corporate
9 Resolution signed by the board of directors of
10 CitiMortgage, and it appoints Nationwide Title
11 Clearing, “are appointed as assistant secretaries and
12 vice presidents of the corporation.”
Do you know how they decided to name these
7 employees listed on the consent as assistant secretaries and
8 vice presidents of the corporation?
9 A Generally, we — we provide them a list of the
10 employees that we’d like them to list.
11 Q Do you know how the — they’re — because they’re
12 basically being designated as officers of the corporation.
Do you know how they decided to name these
7 employees listed on the consent as assistant secretaries and
8 vice presidents of the corporation?
9 A Generally, we — we provide them a list of the
10 employees that we’d like them to list.
11 Q Do you know how the — they’re — because they’re
12 basically being designated as officers of the corporation.
13 Do you know why that particular designation was chosen?
14 A You — you have to name them as officers in order
15 to sign documents in certain counties. They’re only
16 designated as officers in regards to the actual signing of
17 the documents. That’s — that’s their limitation. If you
18 read the entire document, that’s what it limits them to.
13 Do you know why that particular designation was chosen?
14 A You — you have to name them as officers in order
15 to sign documents in certain counties. They’re only
16 designated as officers in regards to the actual signing of
17 the documents. That’s — that’s their limitation. If you
18 read the entire document, that’s what it limits them to.
Q So who generated the Corey Assignment, the actual
11 physical piece of paper?
12 A It came out of our printing area.
13 Q Did — was a person responsible for that, or is
14 that something that’s automated?
15 A It’s automated.
16 Q And what is the name of the automated system that
17 creates the actual Assignments?
18 A Planat Press.
19 Q Can you spell that for me?
20 A P-L-A-N-A-T P-R-E-S-S.
21 Q And where does Planat Press get the information
22 needed to create the documents?
23 A The form is created in Planat Press as I
24 described by Jessica Fretwell in the quality control area.
Q So this — the document, the Corey Assignment,
12 was never a physical piece of paper that was manually
13 signed; is that correct?
14 A That is correct.
15 Q Okay. So Mr. Bly didn’t actually sign the Corey
16 Assignment; is that correct?
17 A Well, he didn’t physically sign it, but he —
18 that meets with the standards for electronic document
19 recording.
Q Yes, ma’am. I understand how it was recorded
7 electronically. I’m just trying to — to determine whether
8 or not Mr. Bly actually signed a physical document or if
9 a — his signature was created by Planat Press.
10 A The signature was included by Planat Press
11 because that document was never printed out.
12 Q So did Mr. Bly review the document before it was
13 sent for electronic recording?
14 A No.
15 Q So — and I’m now — I continue to refer to the
16 Corey Assignment.
17 Mr. Bly never saw the Corey Assignment prior to
18 it being recorded; is that correct?
19 A Correct.
Q Okay. Just to go back to make sure that I
12 understand, I thought that previously you mentioned that
13 Mr. Bly signs a couple of thousands of Assignments and
14 releases a day?
15 A Yes.
16 Q So is there another group of documents where he
17 is actually physically signing?
18 A Yes.
19 Q Okay. So we have two groups: One group that he
20 physically signs and then some that — where his signature
21 is just electronically generated?
22 A Correct.
23 Q But with the Corey Assignment, you’re saying this
24 one was electronically generated?
25 A Correct.
Q And how can you tell that this — that the Corey
2 Assignment was electronically generated?
3 A Because I looked it up before I came in here to
4 see how it was recorded, and it’s in what we refer to as an
