Defense win from Loan Service Company
The Howard Law Group successfully defended its client from Clearspring Loan Services’ (“Clearspring”) attempt to collect the deficiency owed from an overdue mortgage note. The client had previously declared bankruptcy years earlier and the property, on which the mortgage note was due, had been sold back to the original lender and the note was eventually transferred to Clearspring. Prior to this, a recovery services had served the client with default notices in May of 2009 at the latest. This same recovery services subsequently represented Clearspring in its attempt to recover the deficiency and filed the claim in June of 2015. The Howard Law Group filed a Motion for Summary Disposition proving that Clearspring was in violation of the Statute of Limitations when it filed its claim more than 6 years after the client had originally defaulted on the note. As such, judgment was granted in favor of the Howard Law Group’s client and dismissed all claims against the client.
