e-mail address, and other contact information that will provide access during regular business hours to a live representative authorized to discuss the determination on behalf of the mortgagee. The timeline for the mortgagor to request a review of the determination must be at least 30 days after the date of mailing of the written notice of ineligibility and must be stated prominently in the written notice of ineligibility. The written notice of ineligibility must be accompanied by a form for the mortgagee to use in appealing the determination of ineligibility.

Sec. 8. [47.197] NOTICE FOR INELIGIBLE HOMEOWNER.

This written communication must contain a plain language statement explaining why the mortgagor is ineligible, and a toll-free telephone number, address, and e-mail address of a representative of the mortgagee that the mortgagor may contact to dispute any finding of ineligibility.

(1) the frequency, nature, and persistence of noncompliance;

 

(2) a pattern of violations;

 

(3) the extent to which the violation was reckless or intentional; or

 

(4) a violation that results in, or substantially contributes to, the mortgagor's loss of home.

 

Subd. 4. Injunctive relief. The court may issue an injunction to prevent violations of this chapter and to enjoin foreclosure in violation of this chapter.

 

Subd. 5. Reimbursement for litigation costs. A prevailing plaintiff shall recover costs and disbursements of the action, plus reasonable attorney fees.

Subdivision 1. Short sale defined. For purposes of this section, "short sale" means a sale by a homeowner of the homeowner's mortgaged home to a buyer for a price that is less than the amount owed on the mortgage loan.

 

Subd. 2. Prompt response by lender. If a homeowner requests approval of the lender for a short sale of property on which the lender holds a mortgage, the lender must respond in writing to the request, either accepting it, denying it, or accepting it subject to conditions, within 30 days after receiving the request. The response by the lender must state the reason or reasons for a denial or for an acceptance subject to conditions.

 

Subd. 3. Effect of failure to respond by lender. If the lender fails to respond in compliance with subdivision 2, the homeowner becomes entitled to a redemption period of 12 months and the loss of any right the lender might otherwise have to obtain a deficiency judgment in the event of a future foreclosure of the loan. This subdivision applies notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 580.23."

"Sec. 2. [47.221] TRANSPARENCY IN LOAN MODIFICATION CRITERIA.

 

A state-chartered bank shall provide to all of its residential mortgage loan customers in writing, the criteria the bank uses in determining eligibility for a loan modification. The bank shall provide the criteria at least once per year, within 30 days after each change in the criteria, and upon request. If the bank denies an application for a loan modification, the bank shall notify the customer in writing within five days of the decision and provide an explanation of how the customer failed to meet the criteria. The bank must provide the customer with accurate information about the lender."

"Sec. 4. Minnesota Statutes 2011 Supplement, section 580.041, subdivision 2, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 2. Content of foreclosure advice notice. The foreclosure advice notice required by this section must appear substantially as follows:

"Help For Homeowners in Foreclosure

 

The attorney preparing this foreclosure is: ...

(Attorney name, address, phone)

It is being prepared for:

.... (Lender name, loss mitigation phone number)

 

AS OF [insert date], this lender says that you owe $[insert dollar amount] to bring your mortgage up to date (or "reinstate" your mortgage). You must pay this amount, plus interest and other costs, to keep your house from going through a sheriff's sale. The sheriff's sale is scheduled for [insert date] at [insert time] at [insert place].

 

Mortgage foreclosure is a complex process. People may contact you with advice and offers to help "save" your home.

 

Remember: It is important that you learn as much as you can about foreclosure and your situation. Find out about all your options before you make any agreements with anyone about the foreclosure of your home.

 

Getting Help

 

As soon as possible, you should contact your lender at the above number to talk about things you might be able to do to prevent foreclosure. You may be eligible for a loan modification from your lender. You have the right to ask your lender for a statement in writing describing how the lender decides whether to agree to modify a loan. You should also consider contacting the foreclosure prevention counselor in your area. A foreclosure prevention counselor can answer your questions, offer free advice, and help you create a plan which makes sense for your situation.

 

Contact the Minnesota Home Ownership Center at 651-659-9336 or 866-462-6466 or www.hocmn.org or contact the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development at 1-800-569-4287 or www.hud.gov to get the phone number and location of the nearest certified counseling organization. Call today. The longer you wait, the fewer options you may have for a desirable result.""
