Borden & Reiss: Wall Street Rules Applied to REMIC Classification

Bradley T. Borden (Brooklyn) & David J. Reiss (Brooklyn), Wall Street Rules Applied to REMIC Classification:

Investors in mortgage-backed securities, built on the shoulders of the tax-advantaged Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (“REMIC”), may be facing extraordinary tax losses because of how bankers and lawyers structured these securities. This calamity is compounded by the fact that those professional advisors should have known that the REMICs they created were flawed from the start. If these losses are realized, those professionals will face suits for damages so large that they could put them out of business.
