Ingham Co. aiding homeowners Lansing, in legal battles over foreclosures DeWitt OK tax-sharing agreements Matthew Miller

apply for a state economic development designation for the airport within the next month. The 425 agreements will allow the city and township to split tax revenue from airport property and undeveloped land that surrounds it. Because the airport is located in Clinton County’s DeWitt Township, none of that revenue is presently shared with Lansing. Ingham County taxpayers are the only ones in the tri-county area to subsidize Lansing airport operations.

Don Jenks’ home went into foreclosure because a blood clot broke loose from his lung and traveled to his brain. This was in July of last year. Jenks was in the hospital, recovering from open heart surgery. The clot caused a stroke that damaged his eyesight and partially paralyzed his right side. He had a job selling carpet. After the stroke he couldn’t work. He couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage on his condominium in Haslett, the one he bought after the divorce so his daughters could stay in the Haslett schools. His long stay in the hospital and longer stay at his sister’s house during his recovery meant he missed notices from the bank. He was trying to negotiate a mortgage modification with Flagstar Bank, but it was a real estate agent who came by to offer him cash for his house keys, essentially a payment to walk

Two tax-sharing agreements between Lansing and DeWitt Township for the Capital Area International Airport got the green light Monday. The Lansing City Council unanimously approved the two Act 425 agreements, with the exception of 1st Ward Councilman Eric Hewitt, who was absent. DeWitt Township’s board also approved the agreements by a 7-0 margin. Officials now will

LEGAL AID FOR RESIDENTS In June, the Ingham County Board of Commissioners approved a one-year, $60,000 contract with Legal Services of South Central Michigan to provide representation to county residents who have lost their homes or stand to lose them. The firm is representing Don Jenks in his foreclosure case. At the time, Board Chairman Mark Grebner called the contract “almost a no-brainer.” “We’re dependent on tax revenues, and every foreclosure that goes through hits us for hundreds and hundreds of dollars,” he said. “The property gets written down. It damages the property values of other houses. It’s just a mess for everybody.

away, who told him the property had been sold. He decided to fight the process “Because it’s my house. It’s my home. That’s the bottom line.” And his attorney, Perry Thompson of Legal Services of South Central Michigan, the organization retained by Ingham County earlier this year to represent people who have lost their homes or stand to lose them, has found a few reasons why Jenks might be able to prevail. Among the reasons is the signature on the document that transferred ownership of the mortgage on Jenks’ home to Flagstar Bank. It’s signed by a man named Robert Stoudemire, who is signing as a vice-president of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS), but also is a VP at Flagstar. Careful examination of other documents signed by Stoudemire “reveals at least two distinct signatures,” Thompson wrote in a document in the case, which is underway in Ingham County 55th District Court. If at least two people were signing documents as Robert Stoudemire, the filing reads, “there is no reason to believe that any of these documents actually contains the signature of the real Robert Stoudemire.” The response from the opposing counsel was that Jenks simply doesn’t have the legal standing to make that sort of challenge, forged signature or no. The mortgage assignment was between MERS and Flagstar, wrote Tricia Nelson, an attorney with Schneiderman & Sherman in Farmington Hills, and so “The only party that may object to the language of the assignment is MERS or Flagstar Bank.” “Because the defendant is not a party to the assignment, the defendant cannot challenge the assignment.” The logic seems to be that, if MERS wants Flagstar to have the mortgage and Flagstar wants to take it, no third party should be able to question the transaction. Nelson cited an unpublished federal appellate court decision from Livonia Properties Holdings, LLC v. Farmington Road Holdings, LLC, in which the judges ruled the borrower couldn’t question a mortgage transaction between two other parties, although there were questions about the timing. But as the foreclosure crisis has unfolded, it’s become clear many of the country’s major lender were hardly faultless in their record keeping and sometimes willing to resort to questionable, and possibly illegal, methods to try to cover their sins. In that context, Thompson said, the argument is disquieting. “Michigan courts have very clearly

CHANGING PRECEDENTS In Residential Funding Co. v. Saurman, the state Court of Appeals ruled that Mortgage Electronic Registration System did not have the right to foreclose on properties by advertisement, because it did not own an interest in the debt on the properties. The ruling casts doubt on thousands of foreclosures in Michigan and is now set to be heard by the state Supreme Court. In a subsequent unpublished case, Allen Bakri v. Mortgage Electronic Registration System, the state Court of Appeals ruled a third party who had been assigned a mortgage by MERS also couldn’t foreclose by advertisement, again because of the issue of ownership of the debt.

said that the person foreclosing has to actually own the mortgage and the note,” he said, “and if we can’t point out that they don’t, then (the courts’) holding is meaningless.” Neither Nelson nor Neil Sherman, the managing attorney at her firm, responded to messages left Oct. 24. But James Allen, an attorney with Miller Canfield in Troy who represented the lender in the Livonia Properties Holdings case, said the practical risk of accepting a mortgage assignment at face value didn’t seem particularly great. “I’ve actually never read of somebody suing for foreclosure and somebody else coming in and saying ‘I’m the true lender,’” he said. “The sheer number of cases coming through Michigan’s courts has turned the field of foreclosure law into something like an arms race,” Thompson said. “We’re constantly trying to come up with a new argument to save somebody’s house, and the banks’ attorneys are constantly trying to come up with ways of shooting that down.” Lorray Brown, managing attorney with the Michigan Poverty Law Program, said many of the practices now being questioned went on largely uncontested for years because Michigan is a non-judicial foreclosure state, meaning most cases never cross a judge’s desk. “The only reason these things started being revealed is because of the whole crisis, more foreclosures and more litigation,” she said. Jenks’ case still is a long way from the Court of Appeals, where it might set some sort of broader precedent. But Ingham County Register of Deeds Curtis Hertel, Jr., found Fannie Mae’s argument “preposterous” enough that he felt compelled to weigh in on Jenks’ behalf. “What it would mean is that two parties can agree to commit a fraud,” he said, “and nobody can challenge it.” For Jenks, it’s a matter of maybe being able to keep his home. He filed for disability last fall. With it, he said, he could pay what he owes. Only he hasn’t been approved yet.

Lansing would assume police and fire coverage responsibilities, although the airport has its own security system and DeWitt Township officials said the airport does not generate many calls for its police and fire services. City, township and airport leaders want the agreements to bolster their application for recognition as a Next Michigan Development zone, or “aerotropolis,” which offers tax incentives to businesses in hopes of attracting them there.

Next Michigan key Bob Trezise, president and chief executive officer of the Lansing Economic Development Corp., said the agreements likely would be dissolved if the Next Michigan designation isn’t awarded. “The purpose of all of this is to improve the airport and to get that Next Michigan application,” Trezise said. “If Next Michigan doesn’t go through ... we would all as a community have to decide what’s best.” Lansing’s council approved the agreements with relative ease Monday,

Two agreements Two separate agreements were drafted to handle two separate situations. The first includes businesses already housed at the airport property and would continue to tax their real or personal property at DeWitt Township’s rate. The land itself is owned by the airport and is tax-exempt. Any new businesses to open on the undeveloped property would be charged Lansing’s higher operating tax instead of the township rate. Other taxes, such as county or school millages, would remain the same. All businesses, regardless of location,

following presentations in recent weeks from Trezise and township and airport officials. Before approving the documents, at-large Councilman Brian Jeffries asked about accountability should Next Michigan incentives be awarded. Trezise said Lansing and DeWitt Township each would appoint two representatives to oversee the incentives. City leaders have said they anticipate tax income of $34,000 in the first year of the 50-year agreements, with as much as $877,200 in cumulative revenues possible by the 15th year if the Next Michigan designation is successful at attracting new companies.

month, and Tina Henry, finance director, has agreed to retire by the end of the year. Rodgers, who also chairs the Lansing school board, could not be reached Tuesday night for comment. The Oct. 25 resolution called for Rodgers to voluntarily step down, and if she refuses to do so, directs the Board of Commissioners to begin steps to force her removal. Rodgers, appointed by the Democratic-controlled Board of Commissioners in 2007, is serving a six-year term and, under state law, can only be removed from office if there is evidence of “official misconduct,” “habitual or willful neglect of duty” or

incompetence. After the meeting, county commissioner Randy Schafer, one of four Republicans who introduced the resolution, said Rodgers should be removed from office because she improperly initiated a police investigation into whether Benjamin twice used county resources for personal benefit. According to a police report, Benjamin was cleared of any wrongdoing. County commissioner Mark Grebner, a Democrat and chairman of the Board of Commissioners, argued that the resolution should first be considered at the County Services Committee so that commissioners can obtain a

And you guys want to play politics.” BRETT CAMPBELL, A Road Commission supervisor legal opinion on the matter. Meanwhile, more than a dozen road commission employees and residents renewed their call for county commissioners to exercise greater oversight over the Road Commission. Before the meeting, several picketed with signs that read: “Remove Shirley Rodgers” “I drive in this area 250 miles a day, and I want to do whatever we can to make sure we have a Road Commission that works,”

said Anne Clayton, a Lansing resident. Brett Campbell, a Road Commission supervisor, said he is worried that Benjamin’s departure will affect the agency’s ability to deal with the coming snowfall. “We have winter right around the corner, and we’re going to have to decide which roads to salt,” Campbell told county commissioners. “And you guys want to play politics.”

would have to pay a city income tax, including 1 percent for corporations — a requirement that already is a point of contention. Lansing lawyer George Carr, who owns a hangar at the airport, said he was frustrated that he and other airport tenants were not involved in earlier discussions on the agreements. Carr rents out his hangar. “Nobody in economic development raises taxes in order to attract business,” he said. And although the 425 agreements would allow for property tax abatements for new businesses, a bigger issue is the rent tenants pay the airport, Carr said. He pays the airport $261 per month in rent. “That’s what’s stalling development — not taxes

LSD adding ten new buses

Elementary school music programs cut in June will be restored in the Lansing School District, including introductory strings and band classes for fifthgraders. The district also will immediately buy 10 new school buses to replace the oldest vehicles in its fleet of 71. The Lansing school board approved up to about $300,000 for music and about $788,000 for the buses at its meeting Oct. 20. The district will use a portion of the $7.9 million surplus funds discovered in preparation for an audit of the 2010-11 budget to pay for music programs at the elementary level and

boost music programs at its middle and high schools. It would cost about $300,000 to hire three teachers, said Diana Rouse, director of elementary education and student services. But the district might not spend that much. Rouse said she hopes to have a recommendation to the board and get the jobs posted within the next few weeks. Board Secretary Myra Ford asked that the music program be brought back to the table. Her concern: Failing to teach kids the basics in elementary school could affect the quality of middle and high school music programs. On the transportation issue, Chief Operations Officer Brian Ralph told the board the district has 58 bus

routes and 59 reliable buses. Nine of its buses are 13 to 16 years old with excessive mileage. Three others require major repairs or overhauls. Ralph said it is not costeffective, efficient or safe to try to keep old buses on the road. The money for the school bus purchase comes from what is known as the Durant fund, proceeds from a class-action lawsuit about school funding filed in 1980 and resolved by the Michigan Supreme Court in 1997. That $1.6 million is earmarked for technology and capital purchases but cannot be used for instruction or operating expenses. Ralph said the buses can be delivered within two to three weeks of purchase.
