House Panel approves bill allowing cramdowns for mortgagesMortgagePress.comHouse of Representatives, HR 200, Helping Families Save Their Homes in Bankruptcy Act of 2009 A U.S. House of Representatives panel has reportedly approved HR 200, the "Helping Families Save Their Homes in Bankruptcy Act of 2009." The bill, among other things, would: • Allow bankruptcy judges to reduce ("cramdown") the principal balance for certain mortgages, and • Require a bankruptcy court to disallow a claim that is subject to any remedy for damages or rescission due to violations of, among other laws, the Truth in Lending Act, notwithstanding a prior entry of a foreclosure judgment. Thus far, a cramdown provision has not been included in the omnibus HR 1, "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009," which the U.S. House of Representatives passed on Jan. 28.
