Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee for Securitized Asset Backed Receivables LLC Trust 2006-OP1, Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2006-OP1, Plaintiff, v. Lonnie Taylor, Tom Taylor, and The Unknown Heirs at Law of Jacqueline O. Gibbs, Deceased, Defendants.

PLAINTIFF’S FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT

Plaintiff Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee for Securitized Asset Backed Receivables LLC Trust 2006-OP1, Mortgage Pass-through Certificates, Series 2006-OP1 (“Wells Fargo”) complains of Lonnie Taylor, Calvin Taylor, Sheila Taylor, Robbin Taylor, Clarissa Taylor, Latrissia Taylor, Thomas Taylor, and the Unknown Heirs at Law of Tom Taylor, and the Unknown Heirs at Law of Jacqueline O.

Summons is requested.

II. PROPERTY

13. This proceeding concerns the following real property and improvements commonly known as 5706 Spyglass Hill Drive, Arlington, Texas 76018 —and more particularly described as:

Lot 13, Block 7, Northbrook, Phase III, an addition to the City of Arlington, Tarrant County, Texas according to Map or Plat thereof recorded in Volume 388-194, Page 40, of the Plat Records of Tarrant County, Texas (the “Property”).

III. DIVERSITY JURISDICTION AND VENUE

14. This Court has jurisdiction over the controversy because there is complete diversity between Plaintiff Wells Fargo and Defendants, and the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000.00 See 28 U.S.C. § 1332.

15. Plaintiff Wells Fargo is a national association and the trustee of a trust. A trustee that possesses “customary powers to hold, manage, and dispose of assets,” is the real party in interest to a suit. Navarro Sav. Assoc. v. Lee, 446 U.S. 458, 464 (1980); see BAC Home Loans Servicing, LP v. Tex. Realty Holdings, LLC, 901 F. Supp. 2d 884, 907-09 (S.D. Tex. 2012). When a trustee is the real party in interest, its citizenship—not the citizenship of the beneficiaries of the trust—controls for purposes of diversity jurisdiction. Navarro, 446 U.S. at 464-66. That is, when the trustee has control of assets for the benefit of another and has the power to sue or be sued in its own name (and does so), the trustee’s citizenship is “all that matters for diversity purposes.” Americold Realty Trust v. ConAgra Foods Inc., 136 S. Ct. 1012, 1016 (2016) (citing Navarro, 446 U.S. at 462-66). A national banking association is considered a citizen of the state in which it is located, as determined by the state of its main office in the articles of association. Wachovia Bank, NA v. Schmidt, 546 U.S. 303, 318 (2006) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 1348). According to its articles of association, Wells Fargo’s main office is in South Dakota, so Plaintiff is a citizen of South Dakota for diversity purposes.

16. Defendants are individuals and citizens of the state of Louisiana.

17. In this suit, Wells Fargo seeks a declaratory judgment to foreclose on real property. Because the lien interest is valued at more than $75,000.00, the minimum amount-in-controversy requirement has been met. When a party seeks declaratory relief, the amount in controversy is measured by the value of the object of the litigation, and the value of that right is measured by the losses that will follow. Webb v. Investacorp, Inc., 89 F. 3d 252, 256 (5th Cir. 1996). Stated differently, the amount in controversy is “the value of the right to be protected or the extent of the injury to be prevented.” Hartford Ins. Grp. V. Lou-Con, Inc., 293 F.3d 908, 910 (5th Cir. 2002) (quoting Leininger v. Leininger, 705, F.2d 727, 729 (5th Cir. 1983); see also Farkas v. GMAC Mortg., LLC, 737 F.3d 338, 341 (5th Cir. 2013).

18. When the object of the litigation is a mortgage lien that entitles its owner to the full use and enjoyment of the property, the lien may be measured by the appraised value of the property, the purchase price, or the outstanding principal and interest. Cf. Farkas, 737 F.3d at 341, Indeed, United States District Courts in other Circuits have explicitly held that in an action for foreclosure, “the amount in controversy is determined by the debt claimed.” Tracfone Wireless Inc. v. Lamarsh, 98 F. Supp. 3d 828, 829 (W.D. Pa. 2015); Sapphbire Beach Resort & Marina Condo. Ass’n Revocable Trust v. Martin, No. 2007-13, 2008 U.S Dist. Lexis 39357, 2008 WL 2074111 *3(D.V.I May 13, 2008); see also Farmer’s Bank of Alexandria v. Hoof, 32 U.S. 168(1833).

19. Here, the right to be protected is enforcement of a mortgage lien through foreclosure. If Wells Fargo were to foreclose on the Property, it would be entitled to either the full use and possession of it, or the proceeds of a foreclosure sale. In order to be made whole at the foreclosure sale, Wells Fargo would have to recoup the entire unpaid principal balance and all accrued interest and fees since the breach of the loan agreement. But is Wells Fargo is unable to foreclose, it may be entirely divested of any interest in the Property and stands to lose more than$86,604.93, the amount due as of a recent payoff quote. Additionally, the amount to pay off the Loan Agreement is ever increasing as interest and fees accrue. Moreover, the Tarrant County Central Appraisal District appraises the Property at $115,909.00. therefore, the value of the lien interest exceeds $75,000.00, and the minimum amount in controversy has been met.

20. Venue is proper in the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, because this suit concerns title to real property located in Tarrant County, Texas. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 124, 1391(b)(2).

IV. FACTS

21. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

22. On or about June 22, 2005, Ms. Gibbs executed a Texas Home Equity Note (Fixed Rate — First Lien) in the principal amount of $84,000.00 (“Note”), originally payable to Mac & Waters Mortgage Group Inc. (“Mac & Waters”), as lender on a loan secured by the Property.

23. Concurrently with the execution of the Note, Ms. Gibbs executed a Texas Home Equity Security Instrument (First Lien) (“Security Instrument” and together with the Note, “Loan Agreement”), as grantor, granting Mac & Waters, Its successors and assigns, a security interest in the Property. On July 5, 2005, the Security Instrument was recorded in the official public records of Tarrant County, Texas, under instrument number D205189652.

24. Wells Fargo is the current holder of the Note and beneficiary of the Security Instrument. It is also a mortgagee of the Loan Agreement, as defined by Texas Property Code § 51.0001(4).

25. On or about March 4, 2005, Ms. Gibbs died. No probate was ever opened for her. In accordance with Texas Estates Code §§ 101.001(b) and 101.051, her heirs acquired all of her interest in the Property immediately upon her death, subject to the Loan Agreement debt owed to Plaintiff Wells Fargo.

26. Through some, if not all, of the Defendants have had the use, benefit, and enjoyment of the Property, they have failed or refused to pay the debt evidenced by the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement is currently due for the July1, 2015 payment and all subsequent monthly payments. A notice of default and request to cure was mailed to Ms. Gibbs in accordance with the Loan Agreement and the Texas Property Code. The default was not cured, and the maturity of the debt was accelerated: a notice of acceleration of loan maturity was mailed to Ms. Gibbs in accordance with the loan agreement and the Texas Property Code.

27. Plaintiff Wells Fargo brings this suit to obtain an order for foreclosure against Defendants.

V. CAUSE OF ACTION — STATUTORY PROBATE LIEN

28. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

29. Plaintiff Wells Fargo seeks a declaration from this Court that it has a statutory probate lien against the Property under the terms of the Loan Agreement and the following Statutory authority:

a. Tex. Estates Code §§ 101.001(b) and 101.051(b)(1), which state in pertinent part: “the estate of a person who dies intestate vests immediately in the person’s heirs at law . . . subject to the payment of, and is still liable for: the debts of the decedent, except as exempted by law”

b. Texas Title Examination Standards § 11.10, which states in pertinent part: “A decedent’s Property passes to his or her heirs at law or devisees immediately upon death, subject in each instance, except for exempt Property, to payment of debts, including estate nad inheritance taxes;” and

c. Texas Title Examination Standards § 11.60, which states in pertinent part: “A decedent’s Property passes to his or her heirs at law or devises immediately upon death, subject to each instance, except for exempt Property, to payment ofdebts, including estate and inheritance taxes . . . Property of a decedent passes subject to unpaid debts and taxes of the estate.”

30. Through Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien, reserved in Texas Estates Code §§ 101.001 and 101.151, it has an enforceable and superior lien against the Heir’s interest in the Property. Because of a material breach of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo seeks to enforce its statutory probate lien in the Property through foreclosure.

VI. PUBLIC AUCTION

31. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

32. A public auction of the Property in conjunction with all other regularly scheduled non-judicial foreclosure sales on the first Tuesday of the month would provide the most practical, efficient, and effective means to enforce Wells Fargo’s security interest in the Property. Because the rights, responsibilities and duties of Plaintiff Wells Fargo and the trustee are well known under Texas Property Code § 51.002 and Texas case law, a public auction conducted as a non-judicial foreclosure sale would meet all constitutional standards of due process. Because no personal liability is sought against the Defendants, a public auction of the Property would be the most expedient means to put the Property back into the stream of commerce and the housing stock of the community.

VII. JUDICIAL FORECLOSURE

33. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

34. In the alternative, for failure to cure the default of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo seeks to enforce its security interest against the Property in an amount equal to the payoff at the time of judgment. That is, Wells Fargo seeks a judgment for foreclosure together with an order of sale issued to the Tarrant County sheriff or constable, directing the sheriff or constable to seize and sell the Property in satisfaction of the Loan Agreement debt.

VIII, TRESPASS TO TRY TITLE

35. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

36. Concurrent with Plaintiff acquiring all of Defendants’ right, title, and interest in the Property—by enforcement of Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien by non-judicial foreclosure and public auction, or judicial foreclosure—Plaintiff Wells Fargo seeks a declaration and judgment that the Defendants are divested of all of their rights, title and interest in the Property and that all of Defendants’ right, title, and interest in the Property are vested in Wells Fargo. Title as to both Plaintiff Wells Fargo and Defendants is derived from a common source.

IX. WRIT OF POSSESSION

37. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

38. If any person occupies or claims possession of the Property (an “Occupant”) after transfer of all right, title, and interest in the Property in favor of Wells Fargo, Plaintiff requests a writ of possession against any Occupant.

X. ATTORNEY FEES

39. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

40. Because of the material breach of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo is entitled to recover reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees under the loan documents, Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §§ 37.009 and 38.001. Attorneys’ fees are not sought as a personal judgment against the Defendants, but only as an additional debt secured by the Security Instrument.

XI. PRAYER

41. Wherefore, Premises Considered, Plaintiff Wells Fargo requests that Defendants be cited to appear and answer, and the Court enter judgment granting:

a. A declaration that all of Decedent’s Heirs at law have been made parties to this suit and are vested with all of Decedent’s right, title and interest in the Property;

b. A declaration that Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien against the Property shall be enforced by a foreclosure at public auction—or alternatively, a judgment for judicial foreclosure—and that through the foreclosure or auction the Defendants are divested, and the purchaser at foreclosure sale is vested, of all of Decedent’s right, title, and interest to the Property;

c. A writ of possession against any Occupant of the Property if the Occupant fails or refuses to leave the Property after foreclosure or auction;

d. Attorneys fees and costs of suit; and

e. All other relief, in law and in equity, to which Plaintiff is entitled.

Civil Action 4:16-cv-442

Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee for Securitized Asset Backed Receivables LLC Trust 2006-OP1, Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2006-OP1, Plaintiff, v. Lonnie Taylor, Tom Taylor, and The Unknown Heirs at Law of Jacqueline O. Gibbs, Deceased, Defendants.

PLAINTIFF’S FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT

Plaintiff Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee for Securitized Asset Backed Receivables LLC Trust 2006-OP1, Mortgage Pass-through Certificates, Series 2006-OP1 (“Wells Fargo”) complains of Lonnie Taylor, Calvin Taylor, Sheila Taylor, Robbin Taylor, Clarissa Taylor, Latrissia Taylor, Thomas Taylor, and the Unknown Heirs at Law of Tom Taylor, and the Unknown Heirs at Law of Jacqueline O.

Summons is requested.

II. PROPERTY

13. This proceeding concerns the following real property and improvements commonly known as 5706 Spyglass Hill Drive, Arlington, Texas 76018 —and more particularly described as:

Lot 13, Block 7, Northbrook, Phase III, an addition to the City of Arlington, Tarrant County, Texas according to Map or Plat thereof recorded in Volume 388-194, Page 40, of the Plat Records of Tarrant County, Texas (the “Property”).

III. DIVERSITY JURISDICTION AND VENUE

14. This Court has jurisdiction over the controversy because there is complete diversity between Plaintiff Wells Fargo and Defendants, and the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000.00 See 28 U.S.C. § 1332.

15. Plaintiff Wells Fargo is a national association and the trustee of a trust. A trustee that possesses “customary powers to hold, manage, and dispose of assets,” is the real party in interest to a suit. Navarro Sav. Assoc. v. Lee, 446 U.S. 458, 464 (1980); see BAC Home Loans Servicing, LP v. Tex. Realty Holdings, LLC, 901 F. Supp. 2d 884, 907-09 (S.D. Tex. 2012). When a trustee is the real party in interest, its citizenship—not the citizenship of the beneficiaries of the trust—controls for purposes of diversity jurisdiction. Navarro, 446 U.S. at 464-66. That is, when the trustee has control of assets for the benefit of another and has the power to sue or be sued in its own name (and does so), the trustee’s citizenship is “all that matters for diversity purposes.” Americold Realty Trust v. ConAgra Foods Inc., 136 S. Ct. 1012, 1016 (2016) (citing Navarro, 446 U.S. at 462-66). A national banking association is considered a citizen of the state in which it is located, as determined by the state of its main office in the articles of association. Wachovia Bank, NA v. Schmidt, 546 U.S. 303, 318 (2006) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 1348). According to its articles of association, Wells Fargo’s main office is in South Dakota, so Plaintiff is a citizen of South Dakota for diversity purposes.

16. Defendants are individuals and citizens of the state of Louisiana.

17. In this suit, Wells Fargo seeks a declaratory judgment to foreclose on real property. Because the lien interest is valued at more than $75,000.00, the minimum amount-in-controversy requirement has been met. When a party seeks declaratory relief, the amount in controversy is measured by the value of the object of the litigation, and the value of that right is measured by the losses that will follow. Webb v. Investacorp, Inc., 89 F. 3d 252, 256 (5th Cir. 1996). Stated differently, the amount in controversy is “the value of the right to be protected or the extent of the injury to be prevented.” Hartford Ins. Grp. V. Lou-Con, Inc., 293 F.3d 908, 910 (5th Cir. 2002) (quoting Leininger v. Leininger, 705, F.2d 727, 729 (5th Cir. 1983); see also Farkas v. GMAC Mortg., LLC, 737 F.3d 338, 341 (5th Cir. 2013).

18. When the object of the litigation is a mortgage lien that entitles its owner to the full use and enjoyment of the property, the lien may be measured by the appraised value of the property, the purchase price, or the outstanding principal and interest. Cf. Farkas, 737 F.3d at 341, Indeed, United States District Courts in other Circuits have explicitly held that in an action for foreclosure, “the amount in controversy is determined by the debt claimed.” Tracfone Wireless Inc. v. Lamarsh, 98 F. Supp. 3d 828, 829 (W.D. Pa. 2015); Sapphbire Beach Resort & Marina Condo. Ass’n Revocable Trust v. Martin, No. 2007-13, 2008 U.S Dist. Lexis 39357, 2008 WL 2074111 *3(D.V.I May 13, 2008); see also Farmer’s Bank of Alexandria v. Hoof, 32 U.S. 168(1833).

19. Here, the right to be protected is enforcement of a mortgage lien through foreclosure. If Wells Fargo were to foreclose on the Property, it would be entitled to either the full use and possession of it, or the proceeds of a foreclosure sale. In order to be made whole at the foreclosure sale, Wells Fargo would have to recoup the entire unpaid principal balance and all accrued interest and fees since the breach of the loan agreement. But is Wells Fargo is unable to foreclose, it may be entirely divested of any interest in the Property and stands to lose more than$86,604.93, the amount due as of a recent payoff quote. Additionally, the amount to pay off the Loan Agreement is ever increasing as interest and fees accrue. Moreover, the Tarrant County Central Appraisal District appraises the Property at $115,909.00. therefore, the value of the lien interest exceeds $75,000.00, and the minimum amount in controversy has been met.

20. Venue is proper in the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, because this suit concerns title to real property located in Tarrant County, Texas. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 124, 1391(b)(2).

IV. FACTS

21. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

22. On or about June 22, 2005, Ms. Gibbs executed a Texas Home Equity Note (Fixed Rate — First Lien) in the principal amount of $84,000.00 (“Note”), originally payable to Mac & Waters Mortgage Group Inc. (“Mac & Waters”), as lender on a loan secured by the Property.

23. Concurrently with the execution of the Note, Ms. Gibbs executed a Texas Home Equity Security Instrument (First Lien) (“Security Instrument” and together with the Note, “Loan Agreement”), as grantor, granting Mac & Waters, Its successors and assigns, a security interest in the Property. On July 5, 2005, the Security Instrument was recorded in the official public records of Tarrant County, Texas, under instrument number D205189652.

24. Wells Fargo is the current holder of the Note and beneficiary of the Security Instrument. It is also a mortgagee of the Loan Agreement, as defined by Texas Property Code § 51.0001(4).

25. On or about March 4, 2005, Ms. Gibbs died. No probate was ever opened for her. In accordance with Texas Estates Code §§ 101.001(b) and 101.051, her heirs acquired all of her interest in the Property immediately upon her death, subject to the Loan Agreement debt owed to Plaintiff Wells Fargo.

26. Through some, if not all, of the Defendants have had the use, benefit, and enjoyment of the Property, they have failed or refused to pay the debt evidenced by the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement is currently due for the July1, 2015 payment and all subsequent monthly payments. A notice of default and request to cure was mailed to Ms. Gibbs in accordance with the Loan Agreement and the Texas Property Code. The default was not cured, and the maturity of the debt was accelerated: a notice of acceleration of loan maturity was mailed to Ms. Gibbs in accordance with the loan agreement and the Texas Property Code.

27. Plaintiff Wells Fargo brings this suit to obtain an order for foreclosure against Defendants.

V. CAUSE OF ACTION — STATUTORY PROBATE LIEN

28. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

29. Plaintiff Wells Fargo seeks a declaration from this Court that it has a statutory probate lien against the Property under the terms of the Loan Agreement and the following Statutory authority:

a. Tex. Estates Code §§ 101.001(b) and 101.051(b)(1), which state in pertinent part: “the estate of a person who dies intestate vests immediately in the person’s heirs at law . . . subject to the payment of, and is still liable for: the debts of the decedent, except as exempted by law”

b. Texas Title Examination Standards § 11.10, which states in pertinent part: “A decedent’s Property passes to his or her heirs at law or devisees immediately upon death, subject in each instance, except for exempt Property, to payment of debts, including estate nad inheritance taxes;” and

c. Texas Title Examination Standards § 11.60, which states in pertinent part: “A decedent’s Property passes to his or her heirs at law or devises immediately upon death, subject to each instance, except for exempt Property, to payment ofdebts, including estate and inheritance taxes . . . Property of a decedent passes subject to unpaid debts and taxes of the estate.”

30. Through Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien, reserved in Texas Estates Code §§ 101.001 and 101.151, it has an enforceable and superior lien against the Heir’s interest in the Property. Because of a material breach of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo seeks to enforce its statutory probate lien in the Property through foreclosure.

VI. PUBLIC AUCTION

31. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

32. A public auction of the Property in conjunction with all other regularly scheduled non-judicial foreclosure sales on the first Tuesday of the month would provide the most practical, efficient, and effective means to enforce Wells Fargo’s security interest in the Property. Because the rights, responsibilities and duties of Plaintiff Wells Fargo and the trustee are well known under Texas Property Code § 51.002 and Texas case law, a public auction conducted as a non-judicial foreclosure sale would meet all constitutional standards of due process. Because no personal liability is sought against the Defendants, a public auction of the Property would be the most expedient means to put the Property back into the stream of commerce and the housing stock of the community.

VII. JUDICIAL FORECLOSURE

33. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

34. In the alternative, for failure to cure the default of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo seeks to enforce its security interest against the Property in an amount equal to the payoff at the time of judgment. That is, Wells Fargo seeks a judgment for foreclosure together with an order of sale issued to the Tarrant County sheriff or constable, directing the sheriff or constable to seize and sell the Property in satisfaction of the Loan Agreement debt.

VIII, TRESPASS TO TRY TITLE

35. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

36. Concurrent with Plaintiff acquiring all of Defendants’ right, title, and interest in the Property—by enforcement of Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien by non-judicial foreclosure and public auction, or judicial foreclosure—Plaintiff Wells Fargo seeks a declaration and judgment that the Defendants are divested of all of their rights, title and interest in the Property and that all of Defendants’ right, title, and interest in the Property are vested in Wells Fargo. Title as to both Plaintiff Wells Fargo and Defendants is derived from a common source.

IX. WRIT OF POSSESSION

37. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

38. If any person occupies or claims possession of the Property (an “Occupant”) after transfer of all right, title, and interest in the Property in favor of Wells Fargo, Plaintiff requests a writ of possession against any Occupant.

X. ATTORNEY FEES

39. The foregoing paragraphs are incorporated by reference for all purposes.

40. Because of the material breach of the Loan Agreement, Wells Fargo is entitled to recover reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees under the loan documents, Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §§ 37.009 and 38.001. Attorneys’ fees are not sought as a personal judgment against the Defendants, but only as an additional debt secured by the Security Instrument.

XI. PRAYER

41. Wherefore, Premises Considered, Plaintiff Wells Fargo requests that Defendants be cited to appear and answer, and the Court enter judgment granting:

a. A declaration that all of Decedent’s Heirs at law have been made parties to this suit and are vested with all of Decedent’s right, title and interest in the Property;

b. A declaration that Wells Fargo’s statutory probate lien against the Property shall be enforced by a foreclosure at public auction—or alternatively, a judgment for judicial foreclosure—and that through the foreclosure or auction the Defendants are divested, and the purchaser at foreclosure sale is vested, of all of Decedent’s right, title, and interest to the Property;

c. A writ of possession against any Occupant of the Property if the Occupant fails or refuses to leave the Property after foreclosure or auction;

d. Attorneys fees and costs of suit; and

e. All other relief, in law and in equity, to which Plaintiff is entitled.
