HB 149 Website Publication of Foreclosure Sales and Notices Dies

01/31/2012 9:58 PM | Anonymous
FLTA had some concerns about HB 149/SB 230 because it seemed to change the longtime standard for making a diligent effort to serve someone before resorting to giving notice by publication; set standards that only one vendor could meet; and would have unfairly shifted the costs of running the website to those seeking to confirm the validity of the publication (something that is currently free in the court records).

We are pleased to report that the House Civil Justice Subcommittee shared our concerns and voted down the bill today.   As a practical matter, this bill can be considered dead for this year.
