On March 21, the Nebraska governor signed Legislative Bill 750 (LB 750), which amends and clarifies provisions related to the rights and responsibilities of secured creditors and the recording of real property interests. Among other things, LB 750 addresses (i) recording requirements for licensed mortgage bankers and (ii) the liability of a secured creditor that fails to timely record a deed of reconveyance or a release of mortgage when the obligation has been satisfied and a written request to record it has been received from the trustor, mortgagor or grantor. It also provides that “the transfer of any debt secured by a mortgage shall also operate as a transfer of a security of such debt.” The bill takes effect July 18.
