Sec. 21.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 325N.17, is amended to read:

 

325N.17 PROHIBITED PRACTICES.

 

A foreclosure An equity purchaser shall not:

 

(a) enter into, or attempt to enter into, a foreclosure property reconveyance with a foreclosed homeowner owner unless:

 

(1) the foreclosure equity purchaser verifies and can demonstrate that the foreclosed homeowner owner has a reasonable ability to pay for the subsequent conveyance of an interest back to the foreclosed homeowner owner.  In the case of a lease with an option to purchase, payment ability also includes the reasonable ability to make the lease payments and purchase the property within the term of the option to purchase.  There is a rebuttable presumption that a homeowner an owner is reasonably able to pay for the subsequent conveyance if the owner's payments for primary housing expenses and regular principal and interest payments on other personal debt, on a monthly basis, do not exceed 60 percent of the owner's monthly gross income.  For the purposes of this section, "primary housing expenses" means the sum of payments for regular principal, interest, rent, utilities, hazard insurance, real estate taxes, and association dues.  There is a rebuttable presumption that the foreclosure equity purchaser has not verified reasonable payment ability if the foreclosure equity purchaser has not obtained documents other than a statement by the foreclosed homeowner owner of assets, liabilities, and income;

 

(2) the foreclosure equity purchaser and the foreclosed homeowner owner complete a closing for any foreclosure property reconveyance in which the foreclosure equity purchaser obtains a deed or mortgage from a foreclosed homeowner owner.  For purposes of this section, "closing" means an in-person meeting to complete final documents incident to the sale of the real property or creation of a mortgage on the real property conducted by a closing agent, as defined in section 82.55, who is not employed by or an affiliate of the foreclosure equity purchaser, or employed by such an affiliate, and who does not have a business or personal relationship with the foreclosure equity purchaser other than the provision of real estate settlement services;

 

(3) the foreclosure equity purchaser obtains the written consent of the foreclosed homeowner owner to a grant by the foreclosure equity purchaser of any interest in the property during such times as the foreclosed homeowner owner maintains any interest in the property; and

 

(4) the foreclosure equity purchaser complies with the requirements for disclosure, loan terms, and conduct in the federal Home Ownership Equity Protection Act, United States Code, title 15, section 1639, or its implementing regulation, Code of Federal Regulations, title 12, sections 226.31, 226.32, and 226.34, for any foreclosure property reconveyance in which the foreclosed homeowner owner obtains a vendee interest in a contract for deed, regardless of whether the terms of the contract for deed meet the annual percentage rate or points and fees requirements for a covered loan in Code of Federal Regulations, title 12, sections 226.32 (a) and (b);

 

(b) fail to either:

 

(1) ensure that title to the subject dwelling has been reconveyed to the foreclosed homeowner owner; or


Journal of the House - 18th Day - Thursday, February 25, 2021 - Top of Page 591

(2) make a payment to the foreclosed homeowner owner such that the foreclosed homeowner owner has received consideration in an amount of at least 82 percent of the fair market value of the property within 150 days of either the eviction or voluntary relinquishment of possession of the dwelling by the foreclosed homeowner owner.  The foreclosure equity purchaser shall make a detailed accounting of the basis for the payment amount, or a detailed accounting of the reasons for failure to make a payment, including providing written documentation of expenses, within this 150-day period.  The accounting shall be on a form prescribed by the attorney general, in consultation with the commissioner of commerce, without being subject to the rulemaking procedures of chapter 14.  For purposes of this provision, the following applies:

 

(i) there is a rebuttable presumption that an appraisal by a person licensed or certified by an agency of the federal government or this state to appraise real estate constitutes the fair market value of the property;

 

(ii) the time for determining the fair market value amount shall be determined in the foreclosure property reconveyance contract as either at the time of the execution of the foreclosure property reconveyance contract or at resale.  If the contract states that the fair market value shall be determined at the time of resale, the fair market value shall be the resale price if it is sold within 120 days of the eviction or voluntary relinquishment of the property by the foreclosed homeowner owner.  If the contract states that the fair market value shall be determined at the time of resale, and the resale is not completed within 120 days of the eviction or voluntary relinquishment of the property by the foreclosed homeowner owner, the fair market value shall be determined by an appraisal conducted during this 120-day period and payment, if required, shall be made to the homeowner owner, but the fair market value shall be recalculated as the resale price on resale and an additional payment amount, if appropriate based on the resale price, shall be made to the foreclosed homeowner owner within 15 days of resale, and a detailed accounting of the basis for the payment amount, or a detailed accounting of the reasons for failure to make additional payment, shall be made within 15 days of resale, including providing written documentation of expenses.  The accounting shall be on a form prescribed by the attorney general, in consultation with the commissioner of commerce, without being subject to the rulemaking procedures of chapter 14;

 

(iii) "consideration" shall mean any payment or thing of value provided to the foreclosed homeowner owner, including unpaid rent or contract for deed payments owed by the foreclosed homeowner owner prior to the date of eviction or voluntary relinquishment of the property, reasonable costs paid to third parties necessary to complete the foreclosure property reconveyance transaction, payment of money to satisfy a debt or legal obligation of the foreclosed homeowner owner, or the reasonable cost of repairs for damage to the dwelling caused by the foreclosed homeowner owner; or a penalty imposed by a court for the filing of a frivolous claim under section 325N.18, subdivision 6, but

 

(iv) "consideration" shall not include amounts imputed as a down payment or fee to the foreclosure equity purchaser, or a person acting in participation with the foreclosure equity purchaser, incident to a contract for deed, lease, or option to purchase entered into as part of the foreclosure property reconveyance, except for reasonable costs paid to third parties necessary to complete the foreclosure property reconveyance;

 

(c) enter into repurchase or lease terms as part of the subsequent conveyance that are unfair or commercially unreasonable, or engage in any other unfair conduct;

 

(d) represent, directly or indirectly, that:

 

(1) the foreclosure equity purchaser is acting as an advisor or a consultant, or in any other manner represents that the foreclosure equity purchaser is acting on behalf of the homeowner owner;

 

(2) the foreclosure equity purchaser has certification or licensure that the foreclosure equity purchaser does not have, or that the foreclosure equity purchaser is not a member of a licensed profession if that is untrue;

 

(3) the foreclosure equity purchaser is assisting the foreclosed homeowner owner to "save the house" or substantially similar phrase; or


Journal of the House - 18th Day - Thursday, February 25, 2021 - Top of Page 592

(4) the foreclosure equity purchaser is assisting the foreclosed homeowner owner in preventing a completed foreclosure or forfeiture if the result of the transaction is that the foreclosed homeowner owner will not complete a redemption of the property;

 

(e) make any other statements, directly or by implication, or engage in any other conduct that is false, deceptive, or misleading, or that has the likelihood to cause confusion or misunderstanding, including, but not limited to, statements regarding the value of the covered residence in foreclosure, the amount of proceeds the foreclosed homeowner owner will receive after a foreclosure sale of the covered residence, any contract term, or the foreclosed homeowner's owner's rights or obligations incident to or arising out of the foreclosure property reconveyance; or

 

(f) do any of the following until the time during which the foreclosed homeowner owner may cancel the transaction has fully elapsed:

 

(1) accept from any foreclosed homeowner owner an execution of, or induce any foreclosed homeowner owner to execute, any instrument of conveyance of any interest in the covered residence in foreclosure;

 

(2) record with the county recorder or file with the registrar of titles any document, including but not limited to, any instrument of conveyance, signed by the foreclosed homeowner owner;

 

(3) transfer or encumber or purport to transfer or encumber any interest in the covered residence in foreclosure to any third party, provided no grant of any interest or encumbrance is defeated or affected as against a bona fide purchaser or encumbrance for value and without notice of a violation of sections 325N.10 to 325N.18, and knowledge on the part of any such person or entity that the property was " real covered property in foreclosure" does not constitute notice of a violation of sections 325N.10 to 325N.18.  This section does not abrogate any duty of inquiry which exists as to rights or interests of persons in possession of the real covered property in foreclosure; or

 

(4) pay the foreclosed homeowner owner any consideration.

Subd. 6.  Stay of eviction action.  (a) A court hearing an eviction action against a foreclosed homeowner an owner must issue an automatic stay, without imposition of a bond, if a defendant makes a prima facie showing that the defendant:

 

(1) has (i) commenced an action concerning a foreclosure property reconveyance; (ii) asserts a defense under section 504B.121 that the property that is the subject of the eviction action is also the subject of a foreclosure property reconveyance in violation of sections 325N.10 to 325N.17; or (iii) asserts a claim or affirmative defense of fraud, false pretense, false promise, misrepresentation, misleading statement, or deceptive practice, in connection with a foreclosure property reconveyance;

(3) conveyed title to the foreclosed covered residence to a third party upon a promise that the defendant would be allowed to occupy the foreclosed covered residence or other real property in which the foreclosure equity purchaser or a person acting in participation with the foreclosure equity purchaser has an interest and that the foreclosed covered residence or other real property would be the subject of a foreclosure property reconveyance; and

 

(4) since the conveyance, has continuously occupied the foreclosed covered residence or other real property in which the foreclosure equity purchaser or a person acting in participation with the foreclosure equity purchaser has an interest.
