Thomas B. Decea, Esq
The holding in Dutch Lane, an action prosecuted by Mr. Decea on behalf of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, represents the leading case in the State of New York on the issue of an assignment of rents provision in a mortgage. Prior to Dutch Lane, a mortgagee could only collect rents from a defaulted mortgagor after a receiver was appointed and took control of the mortgaged premises which could take months.
In Dutch Lane, Judge Gerard L. Goettel adopted Mr. Decea's argument that the assignment of rents provision in a mortgage is self executing upon a default and held that any rents collected by the mortgagor after its default of the terms of the mortgage must be held in trust by the mortgagor for the benefit of the mortgagee.
Mr. Decea represented defendants in this action commenced in United States District Court, Eastern District of New York against claims asserted by plaintiff under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act 15 U.S.C. 1692 et seq.
Mr. Decea believed that Judge Sifton's decision was based upon a misapprehension of applicable law; based upon his recommendation his client NP Funding II, L.P., made a motion for an order (i) certifying for appeal to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals the denial of NP Funding II, L.P.'s motion for summary judgment; or (ii) granting reargument of the motion for summary judgment and upon reargument reversing the prior decision of the Court.
At the oral argument of the motion, Mr. Decea raised issues sufficient to cause Judge Sifton to continue the oral argument of the motion pending the submission of additional briefs.
