Foreclosure Deeds: End the Arts and Crafts

by @ 11:32 am. Filed under Archived, Indexing

Clipping the Notice of Mortgagee’s Sale from the newspaper and taping it to the affidavit of sale on a foreclosure deed is a practice that has outlived its usefulness. I’ve often wondered why we require the orginal clipping rather than a photocopy of it. Admittedly, I’ve never inquired of anyone because up until now it was just a matter of curiousity. But with are relatively recent conversion to the “scan and return immediately” method of capturing images, the speed of scanning is at a premium. Feeding the page with the taped legal notice clipping through the scanner often results in a crumbled disaster, because the clip is only taped at the top and the bottom and it often becomes unsynched from the underlying page when travelling through the scanner’s auto feed. To prevent this from happening, we’re now photocopying the page of the document with the clip and feeding that through the scanner. If anyone can shed any light on the newspaper clipping requirement, please send me an email.
