@4: You realize it is already been bailed out by tech millionaires already (the current owners), right? That they made is as much of a business as you can, given the dying nature of the breed?

@GuyFawkes - seriously?

You BORROWED the money. You SIGNED the note. You AGREE you signed the note. But, because there isn't a hard-copy immediately available you can decide to not pay? WTF?

You do not appear to be a member of the real world.

@31 - really? What do you really want to have happen here? They used the house as an ATM repeatedly. They had no reasonable way to pay it off. They didn't short sell. They didn't loan mod. They had more than 180 days notice it was going to sell at auction. Once it sold they had 30 day notice to leave, then got 30 more days, then the sheriff tried to evict and they got 30 more days. When is it enough?

They did sign those loan papers. Bottom line, are you really arguing that "those papers were electronically scanned and since you can't find the original paper I no longer have to pay you" - is that seriously the argument?

If you were the person that lent them the money (rather than a nameless bank) would you just let them keep it for free? Where is the reasonableness standard here?

@drshort: My math shows the 1st at 478k & 82k in arrears for a total of $561. The 2nd was 207.5k + unknown arrears. The foreclosure sale was $646 so the 2nd didn't get paid in full and there was nothing left for the owners.

Oh, and there was a 2008 filling by the state for deferred taxes - even more debt to pay off...

Seriously, @GuyFawkes? You are merging so many desperate threads it is almost hopeless.

Is Quality clear as a whistle? Hardly.

Does a "request" to know "who is the owner of my note" have any meaning? No! He had a proper loan servicer (the bank), and known amount to pay off, and someone to pay it to. The BS of "show me some paper trail for the loan I took out in good faith" is crap. He took out the loan and is trying to use legal shenanigans to get out of paying. He isn't denying he took out the loan, he isn't denying he knew who make his monthly payment to, and that he could have made is complete payoff to them as well.

Look, I'm deeply sympathetic to the people that bought in 2006 or 2007 and are so deeply underwater they do a tactical default and start over. I'm not sympathetic to those that used their houses as ATMs or try to use legal shenanigans to try and avoid debts that they knowingly signed up for.

Known facts of the house/sale/mortgage (taken from public records):

Bought before 2000 (amount paid not immediately available)
Refi in 2005 - BofA
Refi in 2006 - American Home Mortgage and GMAC. And the kicker: an assignment of rents - meaning it _wasn't owner occupied_ at the time...
Refi'd in 2007 with a $456k 1st and 207.5k 2nd (that's more than $650k debt - waaaaay more than they would have paid pre-2000)
BS fillings in 2011 trying to assert the the mortgage holders could not prove they had the paperwork and therefore the mortgages were invalid (after multiple refis? - don't think so...)
Got an NTS (notice of trustee sale) in 2012, then early 2013, then again in late 2013
Sold at the foreclosure auction for $646k (wow!) in April.

While I genuinely feel for the dispossessed, they should have long-ago sold (retail, short, whatever) the property, moved into an appropriately priced and functional living situation, and dealt with the reality of the economics of a being in way too much, way too old, of a house.

I'm particularly unsettled by the "assignment of rents" (meaning it was a rental property at one point), the disingenuous legal fillings (oh, you didn't respond to my letter so my mortgage I have isn't valid), and the fact that they had 3 years of notices and deferrals never made a reasonable move to more appropriate accommodations.

Apr 9 ThrowItAway commented on Bryan Ferry's Glitzy History Lesson at McCaw Hall.
Quoted from a Facebook thread about the temp:

Bryan Ferry's lighting designer had McCaw Hall's HVAC system turned off. This unfortunately happens all the time. They do it so the haze in the air hangs. It makes the light beams pop. HVAC systems suck all of the haze out of the room.

Gotta agree with Fnarf on the venue - it was particularly bad where we were in the "boxes" attached to the side of the building. Very muddled, not dynamic, and I don't think there was anything the crowd could really do to bring more energy to the show with that vast open expanse. I'm surprised they couldn't find a bigger (only seats 2,900) and better (acoustically) venue.

As for the heat, someone really should get fired for that...

The buyer almost always pays the recording fees, so this is not much of a favor to the bankers or realtors - this is just him being a full-on dick.
Dec 27, 2013 ThrowItAway commented on Rent a Video.
@15: The problem is the overhead cost for the operation. Rent (very large space for all those titles), salaries (large, knowledgeable staff), acquisition costs (you've got to rent a title a lot of times to make any money on it) - the overhead is huge wherever you are.
