Well, At Least They’re Consistent

Apparently it’s not just suspiciously Latino-looking characters that AZ lawmakers want to force into producing their papers:

Arizona may become the first state to require lenders to prove they have the right to foreclose by providing a complete list of any previous owners of the mortgage, under a bill passed yesterday by its Senate.

The legislation, which is headed to the House after being approved 28-2 in the Republican-dominated Senate, would allow foreclosure sales to be voided if lenders that didn’t originate the loan can’t produce the full chain of title. Arizona permits nonjudicial foreclosures, meaning property can be seized from the homeowner without a court order.

(…)

The bill would require lenders to provide a document attached to the notice of foreclosure sale with the name and address of every beneficial owner of the deed of trust in chronological order, along with the date, recordation number and a description of the instrument that “conveyed the interest of each beneficiary.”

Excellent.  I suppose it helps that one of the bill’s sponsors is currently doing battle with her own mortgage servicer over this very issue…
