Lenders, Don’t Get Burned Twice: Consequences of the Full Credit Bid Rule in Light of the California Wildfires

Credit & Lending

Over the course of two years, California has been devastated by wildfires. While foreclosures may be temporarily on hold, lenders will eventually be forced to complete many foreclosures. This webinar will discuss the strategy behind bidding at those foreclosure sales and the potentially devastating consequences of the Full Credit Bid Rule. Join fellow lenders to understand how the credit bid at the foreclosure sale could negatively affect the ability to recover insurance proceeds. 

Who Should Attend: Chief Credit Officer, Commercial Loan Officer, Consumer Loan Officer, Mortgage Loan Officer, Junior Loan Officer

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the interaction between the Full Credit Bid Rule and a lender’s right to recover insurance proceeds
  • Discover the best way to maximize a lender’s right to insurance proceeds while still completing its foreclosure sale.
