The Second Department, reversing Supreme Court, determined the defendants demonstrated the bank in this foreclosure action did not demonstrate compliance with the notice requirements of RPAPL 1304, which requires the notice of foreclosure be mailed in a separate envelope which includes nothing else:
… [T]he defendants established that the plaintiff failed to strictly comply with RPAPL 1304, on the ground that additional information was included in the same envelope as the 90-day notice required by RPAPL 1304 … . The plaintiff failed to raise a triable issue of fact in opposition. HSBC Bank USA, N.A. v Hibbert, 2022 NY Slip Op 03102. Second Dept 5-11-22
Practice Point: RPAL 1304 is violated if the bank in a foreclosure action mailed the notice of foreclosure to the borrower(s) in an envelope which included other materials along with the notice.
