Creditors will not loose mortgage priority in New Jersey.
In Stinging Rebuke to Financial Institutions and Title Companies, NJ Supreme Court Favors Law Firm's Effort too to Collect Unpaid Legal Bills", von Sherman Wells Sylvester & Stamelman, LLP, Der Artikel trägt den Titel. Indeed, the case does not make a new act, but, as the Supreme Court pointed out, merely uses well-agreed precedence regulations that have applied at least since the mid-19th centuries and were consolidated by the New Jersey Legislature in the 1980s.
There was a simple question: Did the applicant's discretionary advance payments backed by registered liens have precedence over a lien backed by Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti LLP's attorneys' fee, which was covered by the applicant's lien but before his advance payments, where the advance payments were made with factual information about the intervention lien by Riker Danzig?
All the judges of the Appeals Division and the Supreme Court, who examined the case on Riker Gdansk's side and found that his intervention mortgages took priority over the lender's advance in accordance with the well-regulated jurisprudence and applicable laws. An original judgement of the court magistrate in favour of the claimant was overturned by a united panel of the Appeals Division in a ruling notified at 441 N.J. Super 184 (App. Div. 2015), and the Appeals Division was confirmed by the Supreme Court of New Jersey unitedly.
Ever since the nineteenth centuries, the commons law rules in practically every jurisdication that has dealt with the subject, New Jersey included, that incremental credit advance backed by a previously registered mortgages, but made with real wisdom of an intermediate pledge, are subordinate to that pledge. Although she is over one hundred years old, the Rules were first reviewed in 1970 by the Supreme Court of New Jersey (in Mayo v. City Nat'l Bank & Trust Co., 56 N.J. 111, 117 (1970)) and in 1982 by the Chancery Division (in Lincoln Federal S & L Assoc. v. Platt Homes, Inc.
According to the ruling of the Supreme Court, the substance of the Convention was consolidated in 1985. In the early 1980s, the rules were observed because of the increasing spread of home equities lending ("HELOCs") and concerns that progress under these lending arrangements might be subordinate to the intervention of pledges.
In 1997 and 1998 it was modified twice, where prospective mortgages are compulsory, as in a typical HELOC, the advance payments are ' at the time of the mortgage' and are not subject to intermediate pledges. If, however, advance payments are voluntary, they are not retroactive and may therefore be subordinate.
In particular, the law contains safeguards for creditors who undertake to pay so-called mandatory advance payments. The law maintains that advance payments are " mandatory " and thus maintain the initial mortgages prioritisation, even if the creditor has the right to hold back advance payments for a number of specified grounds, including: "Borrowers' pecuniary situation"; a maturity date in the contract; violation of the contract; "an unfavourable alteration in the value or pecuniary position of collateral"; terms and circumstances of drawing applications; or a creditor's exit from the operation of making such facilities available.
The creditor has the right to terminate the contract "to give notice of termination to the borrower" without affecting the "mandatory" nature of the advance and thus its precedence. With these safeguards laid down in the statutes, creditors can and will draw up credit contracts to safeguard their capacity to hold money and conclude credit arrangements due to changing conditions and commercial concerns, while at the same time making sure that their advance payments take precedence over any intermediate lien.
On the Rosenthal case, both the Appeals Division and the Supreme Court exercised the right by stating that Riker Danzig's intervention mortgages took precedence over the plaintiff's future advance because they (i) were provided optionally and (ii) were made with factual notice of Riker Danzig's right of pledge. The Supreme Court's ruling was not, for a number of different purposes, a'reprimand' against either banks or titular corporations, nor did it favour the charging of lawyers' costs over lending.
Firstly, the Court of Justice merely applies the applicable legislation. After all, the precedence principle mentioned in Rosenthal only applies under strict conditions: where advance payments on credits with the creditor are an option and the creditor receives an effective notification of the interim pledge. This does not include typical ELOCs, promised lending arrangements (in which the debtor only takes advantage of one line of credit) or building credits (which are subject to a different regulatory framework).
Creditors can and will design credit contracts to make sure that the priorities of their advance payments are maintained while maintaining overall agility. Moreover, even option advance payments are not treated as subordinate by the recognition of an intermediate mortgages alone - the creditor granting such advance payments must actually be aware of the intermediate pledge.
The Court explained that since the legislature has intervened to legislate in this area, if the bank or cover industry wants to further change the rules, it would be best for such concern to be addressed directly to the legislature.
