While foreclosure may be a long and drawn out process, there could be new hurdles to surmount in the future.Recently, Fannie Mae attempted to initiate a second foreclosure proceeding on a family located in Maine. The family first bought the property in 2004 for $127,920, and initial foreclosure proceedings were filed in 2011. According to the report, lawyers representing the GSE failed to respond to the judge’s orders, and in result the judge dismissed the case.The GSE attempted to initiate a second foreclosure proceeding, but the family fought the ruling, stating that the second suit was no different than the first. The court sided with the family.Default in rural Maine is a deep seeded issue due to industrial economies, according to the report. The family’s property value fell by over 70 percent, putting them deep underwater.In response to the decision, the family’s attorney issued this statement, “It reinforces case law that says you really get only one bite of the apple,” said James Cloutier.According to the report, Fannie Mae did not return a call for comment.

Make my life easier!The Negotiator19th March 20180477 Views Vesper Homes, which rejoices in being a ‘pioneering proptech London estate agent’, has developed an Alexa Skill to make life easier for landlords and tenants.Using an Amazon Echo, landlords can receive instant spoken replies to a multitude of questions about their rental properties, 24 hours a day. All landlords signed up to Vesper Homes’ fully managed service receive a free Echo Dot, which can provide all manner of details associated with their account and tenancies.Questions the landlord can ask Alexa include: ‘When is my rent due?’ ‘When is my break clause?’ ‘Has my rent been paid?’ ‘What is a Section 21 notice?’But it is not just landlords who benefit, as tenants will also receive an Echo Dot, which they can use to report a problem with their rental property. Tenants often complain of non-responsive landlords and letting agents when it comes to reporting issues with their property but using Alexa should get round this, ensuring problems are easy to report and log. Tenants can tell Alexa what the issue is, such as the boiler not working; this then comes through as a ticket to Vesper Homes, who will act on it.James Cameron, Director of Vesper Homes, says, “Alexa is just one of the solutions we have come up with to improve the landlord and tenant experience, with more to come.“We aim to deploy a leading-edge technological platform with a variety of differentiated, client-driven features and processes aimed firmly at improving an already superior service for both landlords and tenants alike with the addition of an enhanced digital drive and presence.”proptech tenants landlords Alexa Alexa Skill Versper Homes March 19, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

“It has been well-studied that increased television time decreases a child’s development of language and social skills. Mobile media use similarly replaces the amount of time spent engaging in direct human-human interaction.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11382711/Using-iPads-to-pacify-children-may-harm-their-development-say-scientists.html The Telegraph 1 February 2015It might be tempting to hand over an iPad to a screaming child when all else has failed to calm them down.But child psychologists say it may be stunting youngsters’ emotional development, because they do not learn how to control their emotions. Dr Jenny Radesky, clinical instructor in Developmental-Behavioural Pediatrics at Boston University, said: “Mobile devices are everywhere and children are using them more frequently at young ages. The impact these mobile devices are having on the development and behaviour of children is still relatively unknown. Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine in the US found that children need to find ways of self-regulating their feelings rather than masking them with distracting programmes or games.
