For years, homeowners defending mortgage foreclosure actions have raised what is commonly referred to as the paragraph 22 notice defense. They have asserted as an affirmative defense to mortgage foreclosure actions that their mortgage has certain very specific notice requirements that the lender must give prior to accelerating the amounts due under the mortgage. Homeowners and their defense attorneys previously argued that the lender must strictly comply with these requirements.
