In an interesting decision by Justice John B. NESBITT of the Wayne County, NY Supreme Court, Justice NESBITT found that MERS has no inherent right to receive notices of tax sales in New York State. The case is:
Matter of the Foreclosure of Tax Liens by the County of Wayne, 2010 NY Slip Op 30628(U) [March 24, 2010]
This is very similar to the Arkansas Supreme Court case identified to this Forum a year ago by "Knows About MERS":
Mortgage Elec. Registration Sys. v. Southwest Homes of Ark., No. 08-1299, SUPREME COURT OF ARKANSAS, 2009 Ark. LEXIS 121, March 19, 2009, Opinion Delivered.
Those relying upon MERS as their nominee seemingly cannot be assured that they will be advised of tax sales of properties in either New York or Arkansas!
