" That woman did sign the loan, but not the borrower's note. No. Following the husband's deaths in 2009, the creditor filed a lawsuit for enforcement claiming that he was the only debtor and that his decease caused the expediting provision in the cession. The spouse denies in her reply that all suspensive requirements for speeding up and enforcement have been fulfilled or have been fulfilled.
Following a benchmark process, the tribunal issued a legally enforceable judgement in favour of the creditor, which did not contain factual determinations or judgments as to whether all suspensive condition precedents had been met. This woman filed an appeal and argued that she was a co-debtor under the hypothec and that the speeding up under the Swiss Act on the Insuranceability of Reverse Mortgages was unlawful,12 U.S.C. 1715z-20(j).
Beneath this law, the surviving spouse argued those mortgages could not be excluded until she was dying or no longer living in the capacity as her primary domicile. Appeals Tribunal held that the question was whether the Tribunal had made a mistake in interpreting the reverse charge and in finding that the woman was not a "borrower" as that definition defines her and that all suspensive requirements for enforcement had implicitly been met.
Court found that Florida statute requires that "in a hypothecary proceeding, plaintiffs must assert and substantiate the existence of all suspensive terms. "The court found that because the man's deaths were the only grounds for speeding up and foreclosing, if the woman was a "borrower" under the hypothecation, then a suspensive requirement for the lender's right to foreclosure had not materialized and the foreclosure inadmissible.
Having analysed the clear text representation of the hypothec, the fact that both spouse and spouse were the "borrower", as well as the fact that the clause in the hypothec reflects the suspensive requirement imposed by Swiss legislation for the insurance of reverse loans, i.e. that the creditor can speed up only if a lender is dying and the real estate is not the main domicile of the beneficiary, the court came to the conclusion that the woman was a citizen of the hypothec and thus a suspensive one.
As the appellate court added, although its investigation could end there, its finding was supported by the Florida Constitution, which required the signing of a marriage partner to establish a vested interest in home ownership. The Court also found that the mortgages included a pact under which the "borrower" had the right to pledge, lend and transfer the ownership, which would be insignificant and incorrect since the married man alone could not incriminate or transfer the ownership.
Lastly, the Court of Appeal based its finding on the fact that it was clearly underpinned by the Home Equities Converting Loans Act, which is covered by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Orally, the notifying party acknowledged that the reverse mortgag in question was a home equity converting mortgag with HUD insurance and the current legislation forbids the HUD secretary to insure a reverse mortgag unless the repayment duty is postponed until the owner's life, the selling of the house or other occurrences referred to in the Ordinance.
Although the U.S. Act only imposes duties on the HUD secretary and demands certain conditions in reverse mortgage loans, the court found that because it must interpret a treaty in accordance with the Florida jurisprudence governing and regulating the treaty, and the clear intent of the Act is to shield itself from the expulsion of senior home owners, it would be insignificant if a mortgage creditor could be expelled while a "homeowner", as herein specified, is still in the real estate as his primary dwelling as such, because according to the Florida jurisprudence governing and regulating the treaty, the court interpreted the treaty in accordance with the Florida jurisprudence governing and regulating the sale of properties.
According to the Court, the spouse was a "borrower" under the reverse mortage and the creditor had to determine as a suspensive requirement for enforcement that (a) the spouse had passed away or (b) at the time of the proceedings the ownership was not her main place of residence. 7.
Since the appeal file did not mirror whether the real estate was the main domicile of the spouse on the day of the proceedings, the enforcement order was quashed and the case was only dismissed for a new lawsuit on the question of whether the charged real estate was the main domicile of the spouse on the day of the proceedings.
