“Assignment of Mortgage that assigned the Note that was dated three years prior to the filing of the Complaint, that was attached to the Complaint at the time of filing was sufficient to establish standing.”
On July 26, 2019, the Second District Court of Appeal in Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee for the Certificate Holders of Bank of America Mortgage 2007-1 Trust, Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2007-1, Appellant, v. Cook, Case No. 2D17-3913, 44 Fla. L. Weekly D1921b, (Fla. 2nd DCA July 26, 2019), held that “the Plaintiff had standing to bring the action, as the Plaintiff had attached an assignment of mortgage that transferred the note that was dated almost three years prior to filing suit with the Complaint, and with the Plaintiff later on introducing the original note with a blank endorsement from the original lender to Plaintiff.” This case is not yet final.
