To entitle any party to make such foreclosure, it is requisite:

(1) that some default in a condition of such mortgage has occurred, by which the
power to sell has become operative;

(2) that no action or proceeding has been instituted at law to recover the debt then
remaining secured by such mortgage, or any part thereof, or, if the action or proceeding
has been instituted, that the same has been discontinued, or that an execution upon the
judgment rendered therein has been returned unsatisfied, in whole or in part;

(3) that the mortgage has been recorded and, if it has been assigned, that all
assignments thereof have been recorded; provided, that, if the mortgage is upon registered
land, it shall be sufficient if the mortgage and all assignments thereof have been duly
registered; deleted text beginand

the mortgagor's homestead, the mortgagee has rejected the request by notice in writing
to the mortgagor. This requirement does not apply to a mortgagor's request for a loan
modification made sooner than 60 days after a previous request by the mortgagor for
a loan modification on the same mortgage loan was rejected by the mortgagee. The
mortgagee cannot begin or continue a foreclosure if a loan modification request has been
submitted, is under consideration, is pending, or if there has been a loan modification and
the mortgagor is not in default on the modified loan.
