Foreclosures Fundamentals

Join seminar chair Denise Hendrix in Edmonton (May 18) or in Calgary (May 23) for Foreclosures Fundamentals. Review the substantive and procedural issues involved in the foreclosure process. Understand foreclosure proceeding priorities, foreclosure orders, and strategic options.


Discussion Topics

We recently spoke with Denise to learn more about this program, here’s what she had to say about the topics that will be covered.

We’ve got a great group of people who will be talking about the foreclosure process from A to Z. They will discuss the unique circumstances you may deal with in a foreclosure, such as condominium separation, homeowner associations, dealing with difficult self-represented litigants, and more. At the end, I’m going to lead a general question and answer period dealing with what we seek in court and why. We want to give people who don’t practice in the area a basic knowledge of the foreclosure process, and for those that do practice in the area, we want to give them a bit of a refresher on some of the unique issues we face.”

Sneak Preview

Denise gave us a sneak preview of her discussion topic, and here’s what we found out.

As lawyers, we represent a subsequent encumbrance on title. With a foreclosure, while there is a plaintiff and defendant, there really isn’t an adversarial process. The law is very clear on what happens and why, the steps that we take, and what the considerations are when we take those steps. The process is pretty straight forward, but the nuances about what to do when you get those packages are what I want to teach people about. I want to give people a chance to understand why we do what we do and why we don’t do some things that happen in other litigation processes. I want people to gain a better understanding of what slows down our process, what speeds it up, and how we can deal with these situations equitably for everybody.

Denise also told us why she is excited about this program.

I always love the opportunity to teach. My first degree is in education, so it is a passion of mine, but I also love to make sure that the bar as a whole is educated about what happens in foreclosures. Other parts of litigation are very adversarial and this doesn’t need to be.”
