Here is an example of a Parallel Foreclosure or no deal, and it may also be a violation of the Federal Hobbs Act, the extortion clause.
Click here to read about the case of a homeowner who cannot get a HAFA approved because they are not late on their mortgage payments! Yet if the homeowner becomes late on their mortgage payment, parallel foreclosure kicks in. Therefore, in this instance parallel foreclosure is a prerequisite to the homeowner being accepted for HAFA.
If I am correct above, then that could be a Federal Hobbs act violation, the extortion clause. Luring homeowners into taxpayer funded government programs that require parallel foreclosure to occur before or during the loan process is a form of racketeering because it puts the homeowner closer to losing their home simply for trying to save their home through a taxpayer funded loan program.
