HB 62/LM (BR 237) - D. Horlander, C. Miller, R. Bunch, J. Richards, A. Simpson

     AN ACT relating to filing deeds in lieu of foreclosure in the county clerk's office.
     Amend KRS 382.110, relating to the recording of deeds and instruments, to require a mortgage holder to file a deed in lieu of foreclosure with the county clerk within 30 days of the execution of the instrument's execution; amend KRS 382.990 to assess a penalty in the form of a violation of law for any mortgage holder who fails to file a deed in lieu of foreclosure pursuant to Section 1 of the Act; amend KRS 142.050, relating to the assessment of a transfer tax on property, to exempt filing deeds in lieu of foreclosure filed pursuant to Section 1 of this Act from the transfer tax.


     HCS/LM - Retain original provisions of the bill, but specify that the mortgage holder's obligation is to file with the county clerk, rather than to have recorded the deed in lieu of foreclosure, and to allow 45 days rather than 30 days to do so.
