12 U.S. Code § 3751 - Findings and purpose
prev | next
The Congress finds that—
(1) the disparate State laws under which mortgages are foreclosed on behalf of the Secretary covering 1- to 4-family residential properties—
(2) the long periods required to complete the foreclosure of such mortgages under certain State laws—
(C) increase the risk of vandalism, fire loss, depreciation, damage, and waste with respect to the properties; and
(3) these conditions seriously impair the ability of the Secretary to protect the Federal financial interest in the affected properties and frustrate attainment of the objectives of the underlying Federal program authority;
(4) the availability of uniform and more expeditious procedures, with no right of redemption in the mortgagor or others, for the foreclosure of these mortgages by the Secretary will tend to ameliorate these conditions; and
The purpose of this chapter is to create a uniform Federal foreclosure remedy for single family mortgages that—
(1) are held by the Secretary pursuant to title I or title II of the National Housing Act [12 U.S.C. 1702 et seq., 1707 et seq.]; or
