The Second Department, reversing Supreme Court in this foreclosure action, determined plaintiff did not comply with the RPAPL 1304 requirements that the 90-day notice of foreclosure be mailed in a separate envelope and that the notice be sent separately to both borrowers:
… [T]he plaintiff failed to establish … that it strictly complied with RPAPL 1304, since additional material was sent in the same envelope as the 90-day notice required by RPAPL 1304 … , and a single notice was jointly addressed to both defendants … . HSBC Bank USA, N.A. v DiBenedetti, 2022 NY Slip Op 02983, Second Dept 5-4-22
Practice Point: RPAPL 1304, which must be strictly complied with by the bank in any foreclosure action, requires (1) that the 90-day notice of foreclosure be sent in a separate envelope which includes nothing else and (2) that the 90-day notice be sent separately to each borrower.
