That's interesting because I spoke to a retired business loan officer yesterday and she said it's fraud to misvalue your assets to get a loan. Definitely not "nobody's problem"
View Quote
hmm I used to be a commercial loan officer in Los Angeles for a top 3 bank.

I financed properties/projects in the $5mm-$50mm. I did many loans including a few that required multiple banks to be involved  because 1 bank did not want the entire risk.

I owned a mortgage company for 10 years before retiring.

The majority of people over state the value of the property they are trying to finance. That is why we "the financial institution lending" do our due diligence to ensure value. Appraisals...

Ever refinance your property, ask for x on loan because house has y value, then the banks have an appraiser come through  and tell you house is really worth z, then you look at tax assesors value of wtf?

I did , I told bank my house was worth 1.7mm so I could get a 300k line of credit. well appraiser said more like 1.6mm so we still took out 300k. tax assesor has our value at 7??K. according to NYAG and your business loan officer friend Im a criminal and would easily assume 80% of those who have ever refinanced are guilty as well.

Nobody knows the value of their assets, thats why independent people/companies appraise the value for banks. These commercial appraisals are no joke and 10 times the volume of your normal house appraisal. EVERYONE in the transaction was fine with the value of Trumps beautiful and tremendous properties or NO money would ever had been transferred. misvaluing a propety is absolutely the norm at the onset of loan process. EVERYONE in NY should be concerned at what happened.


ETA:
let me add I have also sold off 16 properties (residential/multifamily and commercial)I owned over the last 3 years. in this Ca market I have listed and sold multiple over what the appraiser said the value was. in those instances the buyer stated on a loan application the property had x value then were told y value and had to come up with extra funds at close. did they commit fraud? did I? see how normal it is and how scary it should be.

I'm not a trucker but as a veteran bank employee (IT worker but somewhat familiar with many aspects of banking) this seems to me a very bizarre court decision.  The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

When you apply for a secured loan, it's incumbent on the potential lender to judge the valuation of property offered as collateral.  If a bank's highly regulated internal processes and procedures determine that a loan is a "go", then it's a done deal and really not a problem for government or anyone else if the borrower defaults.

If the borrower DOESN'T default, it's nobody's problem at all.

I really don't understand how Trump could be fined for overstating the value of his property.  If he did, that's the bank's problem.

Manhattan real estate is so insane the price can be subject from each buyer to another. You could have one company wanting to pay $20 million and another offering $30 just to get it.

Every single investor and developer in NY does the exact same thing Trump did. They pump up the value of assets to leverage that money into other properties.

Not to devalue your experience, but I would have thought this was obvious to anyone who's bought/sold anything.  I want to buy your widget.  You say it's worth $200.  I think it's only worth $100.  Either we agree on a price (valuation), or there's no transaction.  And if I don't value it at $200, maybe someone else comes along and thinks it's worth that, and pays you what you valued it at.

I didn't think this was a hard concept at all, and I suck at selling/negotiating.

Luckily her public threats will look really good in an appeals brief.

Government taking of property can only occur after due process. At least according to the Constitution.

This is all very obviously a government taking. Which means appeals have to be heard and decided on or it runs afoul of basic civil rights.

I have no doubt the court system in NY state is eager to do just that. But federal courts may be more reluctant to sign their name to the utter destruction of basic constitutional principles.

You're right.

...and that's why it should be done.

The reason the constitution exists is because a bunch of people who didn't trust each other put together some boundaries to protect their interests from being overrun. The problem here is at its base, the progs are using weapons and tactics they do not expect to be used against them in kind.

They need to be disabused of that notion. And the corrupt political actors on the courts need to understand that what they endorse today will be used on them tomorrow.

That's the only way it stops.

Four days after a judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $354 million in his civil fraud case, New York Attorney General Letitia James told ABC News that she is prepared to seize the former president's assets if he is unable to find the cash to cover the fine.

"If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek judgment enforcement mechanisms in court, and we will ask the judge to seize his assets," James said in an interview with ABC News' Aaron Katersky.

Trump was fined $354.8 million plus approximately $100 million in pre-judgment interest on Friday after Judge Arthur Engoron determined that he inflated his net worth in order get more favorable loan terms.

The former president has denied all wrongdoing and has said he will appeal.

Saying that she was "very confident" with the strength of her case on appeal, James reiterated that her office would not hesitate to seize Trump's assets -- mentioning Trump's 40 Wall Street skyscraper by name -- if the former president is unable to find the cash to cover the court-ordered disgorgement.

"We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street each and every day," James said of the standard court process for collecting judgments in civil cases.

James directly countered Trump's allegation that the case lacked any victims, instead describing her case as vital to ensuring financial markets treat New Yorkers fairly.

If she does that, I think she will drive a "martyr-vote" mentality.
There's a good chance it will attract more attention to Trump, not prove what they think it will.

A pyrrhic victory

Keep in mind that these lawfare schemes are the brain children of the same sort of people who thought we'd be welcomed as liberators in Iraq. Or that the Arab Spring would do something other than empower the Muslim Brotherhood.

They do not understand the consequences of their actions.

I have been keeping up with this nonsense on Youtube from people who are familiar with real esttate laws in NYS & NYC, and it is highly unusual. I hope this backfires on the Dems in Nov 2024.
