NHMFC Litigation Fee

Litigation[1] is the process of taking a case through court. The litigation or legal process is most common in civil lawsuits. In litigation, there is a plaintiff (one who brings the charge) and a defendant (one against whom the charge is brought).

If you want to buy a foreclosed property mortgage through NHMFC[2], you are required to pay a ligitation fee. I have known someone who paid a litigation fee of more than 50K for a foreclosed property. There is no question about the fee. The question is, the receipt provided by NHMFC[2] is not an official receipt but a receipt that you can just buy from Recto or anywhere else. Is this a normal practice for NHMFC[2]? Is VP Jojo Binay even aware of this anomaly at NHMFC?


Where will these litigation fees be going? You guess is as good as my mine. MHFMC officials please explain. Thank you!
