RPAPL 1304 – Are Mortgagors “Borrowers”?

New York's pre-RPAPL Section 1304 requires lenders to serve a notice to each "borrower" at least 90 days prior to the commencement of a foreclosure. Failure to do so will cause the foreclosure to be dismissed, as the requirement is considered to be a condition precedent to the commencement of the foreclosure. New York’s statute, however, does not define a “borrower" or distinguish between the parties who execute the note and those who execute the mortgage.
