FCLF’s Week in Review: Is “Mortgage to Lease” a Viable Option for Underwater Homeowners?

From displeasure with the Volcker Rule to an alternative to foreclosure, here are a few highlights from this week in financial law:

 

  • It’s not breaking news that it takes a long time to fix out of control inflation, but does the G7 know that? Not clear.

 

  • Collocation” – rapid fire exchange based trading systems under scrutiny by the SEC. Major funds and firms colluding to limit competition and manipulate markets? Ha, never.

 

  • Can’t afford your mortgage payments? Bank foreclosing? Just give your house to the bank and rent it from them instead!

 

  • A little fraud here, a big settlement there, but hey, business is still booming and we’re the industry leader for government debt!
