WGMD: AG’s office to hold Foreclosure Prevention Workshops in Seaford & Wilmington
The Attorney General’s Mortgage Fraud Task Force is sponsoring free statewide housing workshops on November 8th in Seaford and November 9th in Wilmington to help Delawareans who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure, Attorney General Beau Biden announced today. The workshops are offered to facilitate loan modifications, reduce foreclosures, and provide information to help residents stay in their homes and avoid foreclosure fraud. Since 2009, more than 1,200 homeowners have attended 20 workshops sponsored by the Task Force in conjunction with the Delaware State Housing Authority and State Bank Commissioner.
“Our goal is to make sure that homeowners who are seeking ways to meet their mortgage obligations are able to have meaningful conversations with their lenders and avoid being victimized by mortgage “rescue” scams that strip homeowners of their equity and their home,” Attorney General Biden said. “I strongly encourage homeowners who are behind on mortgage payments to attend our housing workshops where they can sit face-to-face with their lenders and discuss repayment plans or other options to avoid foreclosure and get information about the many services available to them.”
