fORECLOSURE - POST-JUDGMENT ADVANCES

On June 25, 2019, the First District Appellate Court granted the Petition for Rehearing filed by Arthur C. Czaja on behalf of his clients in a mortgage foreclosure case that went through the trial court in Cook County and then to the First District Appellate Court.  A Petition for Rehearing asks a reviewing court to reconsider its decision.   The case involved a mortgage foreclosure and a loan modification.  The precise issue the Appellate Court has been asked to reconsider is the requirements for a lender to prove its post-judgment advances after a judgment of foreclosure is entered.  The case is entitled Federal National Mortgage Association v. Akogu, Case Number 1-17-0621 and is currently being briefed in the First District Appellate Court for the State of Illinois.  Stay tuned for more news related to this case.
