In The case of Washington Mutual Bank v. Roggio, the New Jersey Appellate Court considered the foreclosure of a mortgage originally held by Washington Mutual Bank but held by JP Morgan Chase at the time of the foreclosure action. The Appellate Court held that, a note originally payable to one lender but later endorsed in blank was converted to a negotiable instrument payable to the bearer. Thereafter, future delivery of the mortgage to another institution, in this case JP Morgan Chase, results in receiving institution being in possession properly for purposes of foreclosure on the mortgage.
