Garrard v. Total Lender Solutions CA6
In this appeal, we review the trial court’s orders denying appellants’ various efforts to regain title to a property subject to foreclosure.
In 2006, plaintiff and appellant Carol Garrard, as administrator of the estate of her mother, Alice Richardson, took out a loan secured by property in Seaside, California. Approximately ten years later, and following several rounds of litigation, the investors who funded the loan in exchange for a security interest in the property—defendants and respondents Chris Podlewski and Michael and Susan Reed (the Reeds), and defendants Edward Von Deutsche, and Harold and Judith Levy (the Levys) (collectively the Investors)—foreclosed on the property. Defendant and respondent Ouita Martin LLC (Martin) purchased the property in October 2016 at the foreclosure sale; defendant and respondent Total Lender Solutions, Inc. (TLS) served as the substitute trustee for the trustee’s sale.
