Summary AB149:  FORECLOSURE MEDIATION 

AB 149 Effective: Wednesday, July 1, 2009

NRS 107.080 and 107.085 sets forth procedures governing foreclosures on real property upon default.

Under those provisions, a trustee under a deed of trust has the power to sell the property to which the deed of trust applies, subject to certain restrictions.

This bill establishes additional restrictions on the trustee's power of sale with respect to owner-occupied housing by providing a grantor of a deed of trust or the person who holds the title of record with the right to request mediation under which he may receive a loan modification.

Once mediation is requested, no further action may be taken to exercise the power of sale until the completion of the mediation. Each mediation must be conducted by a senior justice, judge, hearing master or other designee pursuant to rules adopted by the Nevada Supreme Court, and a fee of not more than $85 per hour may be charged and collected for the mediation.

This bill also restricts the trustee's power of sale with respect to owner-occupied housing by revising the period in which a deficiency in performance or payment under the trust agreement may be made good before the trustee may exercise that power.

Similarly, this bill restricts the trustee's power of sale with respect to owner-occupied housing by revising the manner in which service of notice that a person is in danger of losing his home must be made.

Lastly, this bill authorizes the Nevada Supreme Court to adopt rules providing for voluntary mediation with respect to a homeowner who is not in default but is at risk of default.
