When I set out to begin my quest to discover the goings-on behind the scenes of the 2008 financial disaster, I had no idea that my research was going to develop into a widely-circulated book or the design of a specific chain of title assessment protocol. I never understood why Americans lacked a real financial education until I began to understand for myself what happened to me, happened to a lot of other people as well.

Do You Actually OWN Your Home?

“The information on the flash drive was in of itself worth the price of admission!”
C. H., Realtor-Investor, San Antonio, TX
Thank you so much for all the time and effort you have put in to educate us on the COTA preparation.The insight and critical analysis that you have shared in the different angles on how we look at the information provided us has been a very valuable tool for me and I am sure for most of us in the class.My hope is that through the work you do and through us, we both grow the number of COTA preparers that could potentially help a lot of people in dealing with this mortgage crisis that our nation is faced with.I appreciate the unselfish sharing of your work and information.
”Anyone remotely considering a Quiet Title or Wrongful Foreclosure Action, challenging your Lender, Bank, Financial Institution or any of the unscrupulous Foreclosing Entities (Including MERS) would be kidding themselves if they thought or believed that they could be successful or get across the finish line without one of Dave Krieger’s COTAs. It would be equally wise and extremely advisable before you embark on such an endeavor or mission to read “Clouded Titles”, as I have 3 times!”
Al West, Esq., Redondo Beach, CA
I have utilized Dave Krieger’s chain of title assessments in multiple litigation cases here in Michigan. Mr. Krieger is at the cutting edge in the field of title analysis and has shown a keen ability to make sense of even the most confusing and esoteric recorded information. Clients who wish to challenge foreclosure in a court of law or otherwise battle the mortgage industry are well advised to consider an expert review of the history of their property. I fully endorse Dave Krieger for the job. His reports leave no stone unturned he consistently follows up to answer questions or share his vast knowledge of the industry.
