Bill Summary

Under current law, when real property is sold in a foreclosure sale for an amount above the value of the lien on the property, any excess amount (overbid), after paying all junior lienors, is paid to the owner of the property as of the recording of the election to foreclose. The act requires that any overbid is instead paid to the person liable under the related evidence of debt constituting a mortgage loan or deed of trust.

The act also adds to the definition of "qualified holder" a private company that originates, insures, guaranties, or purchases loans on behalf of a holder of evidence of debt that is secured by a deed of trust encumbering a time share estate with a minimum of $5 million in assets or not less than 1,000 loans.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
