Free Webinar on Home Affordable Modification Program September 24

You’re probably aware of the fact that the California Homeowner Bill of Rights went into effect on January 1, 2013, and you may also know that other states and cities are considering/have already implemented their versions of this important law.

But did you know there is also a collaborative of five organizations dedicated to ensuring that this law is followed by banks and servicers?  The California Homeowner Bill of Rights Collaborative (HBOR Collaborative) is comprised of San Francisco-based housing advocacy center, the National Housing Law Project (NHLP), and its project partners, Western Center on Law & Poverty, the National Consumer Law Center, and Tenants Together.

In addition to sponsoring trainings for attorneys on using the California Homeowner Bill of Rights to represent homeowners, the HBOR Collaborative is also sponsoring an upcoming webinar:

HAMP Rules on Loss Mitigation” on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 from 12pm to 1:30pm Pacific Time.  This free webinar will introduce the basic structure of the federal Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and place it in the context of other available modification programs. We will review topics including eligibility, how modifications are done, and servicer requirements for timing and notice.  Updates on recent developments will be included.

Presenter:  Alys Cohen, staff attorney, National Consumer Law Center
