Real property — Foreclosure — Validity of lien
Appellees, Jeffrey B. Fisher, Doreen A. Strothman, Virginia S. Inzer, William K. Smart, and Carlette M. Grier (collectively “substitute trustees”), filed their order to docket a foreclosure suit against appellant, Paul S. Carver, pertaining to appellant’s property located at 1600 E. Oliver Street, Baltimore, MD in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. The court entered an order for the foreclosure to proceed and appellant filed for a foreclosure mediation. The parties executed an agreement in which appellant had 30 days to consult with a housing counselor and submit a financial analysis form and proof of income.
Thereafter, appellant filed a motion to stay and dismiss the foreclosure, to which appellees filed an opposition. The circuit court denied appellant’s motion because, inter alia, appellant did not present a valid defense regarding the validity of the lien. Appellant appealed.
