The Foreclosure Crisis: Challenges and Solutions to the Mortgage Meltdown
Panel 2: Reforming Title Recording and Transfer: Key to a 21st Century Mortgage Market
Date: 04/13/2012 Duration: 1:30 Description:
Most Americans do not know that a single private corporation, the Mortgage Electronic Registration System (MERS), holds the titles to millions of mortgages in this country. The panelists explore how 21st Century technology can satisfy the needs of the securitization market for rapid, high volume mortgage transfers, and the public's need for an accurate and transparent system for tracking the status of individual loans and mortgages.
Panelists include Laurence Platt (K&L Gates), James Rhyne (Thematix Partners), Nancy Wallace (Haas School of Business), and Benjamin Weber (Office of San Francisco Assessor-Recorder).
