Can my second mortgage foreclose on me if I am not current on loan payments?
This is a question my real estate law office hears quite frequently. The simple answer is YES, your second mortgage or HELOC loan can foreclose on your if you are not current on your loan payments. Your HOA can foreclose on your as well if you have delinquent HOA liens. So it is important to try to keep these things current so you do not lose your home to foreclosure. Attorney Steve discusses this topic, and also presents a WARNING TO AVOID A SECOND MORTGAGE SCAM of paying the wrong party.
Some other important issues to keep in mind are dicsussed on this show, for example:
1. The California "one-action rule" (second mortgages suing you on the note before exercising on the "security first"
2. Failure of new loan servicer to send you a notice of transfer of loan servicing rights (RESPA)
3. Failure to provide notice of change of ownership (for example if someone "buys your note" at a promissory note sale) (
4. The need to send FDCPA "debt validation" letters and QWR (Qualified Written Requests to make sure you do not get scammed)
Listen in to the show for valuable information that might possibly help you save your home from foreclosure and preserve any equity you might have in your property.

Beginning in the 1980’s, with the increased awareness of the changing demographics of the U.S. workforce, diversity entered the workplace vocabulary to describe all the things that make us human, both differences and similarities, and may impact performance and productivity. Now, some thirty years later we as a society continue to struggle with various dimensions of diversity, including race, gender, generational differences in values and work ethic, sexual orientation, religion political affiliation, and basic values. Corporations now talk about employee engagement and inclusion, instead of managing diversity per se, and still find it difficult to attract and retain the best and brightest talent. Our discussion will focus on the past, present and future of living and working with one another as human beings, and where we seem to be headed.

This interview is a three-way discussion between the host, Franne McNeal, the author, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton and Dr. Wayne M. Wormley.
Dr. Fay Cobb Payton published a book in 2014 entitled: Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, in which she discussed digital and social inclusion in technology oriented fields. Her work is a reflection of the earlier diversity efforts (from the 80’s and 90’s to the new millennium), to create productive and healthy work environments that naturally attract the best and brightest talent, globally. Here we are in 2015 and we see these efforts have not succeeded, especially in technology oriented/STEM fields.
