The HBOR Collaborative presents a free 90-minute webinar on the new rights and protections granted to California homeowners under the Homeowner Bill of Rights. The Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR) became effective on January 1, 2013. HBOR codifies in state law the broad intentions of the NMS pre-foreclosure protections. It represents a dramatic change to California’s foreclosure process and will present obstacles and opportunities for homeowners and industry. This webinar will provide participants with:
- Overview of HBOR law
- Resources for HBOR litigation
- Interplay of HBOR with NMS, CFPB servicing rules, and other laws.
Please join Kent Qian of the National Housing Law Project, one of the California’s leading foreclosure experts, to learn more about this new bundle of rights for state homeowners.
Kent Qian of the National Housing Law Project is the Project Leader of the HBOR Collaborative. He has been a leading national advocate for improving protections of low-income homeowners and tenants in the ongoing foreclosure crisis. He provided assistance to federal policymakers in the creation of the landmark Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act and has provided extensive technical assistance and litigation support to attorneys throughout state and the country on federal and California-specific foreclosure laws, loan modification policies, and foreclosure recovery-related legislation.
The HBOR Collaborative is funded by the Office of the California Attorney General under the national Mortgage Settlement. The Collaborative is a partnership of four organizations: National Housing Law Project, National Consumer Law Center, Tenants Together and Western Center on Law and Poverty. We offer free training, technical assistance, litigation support, and legal resources to California’s consumer attorneys and the judiciary on all aspects of the new California Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR). The goal of the Collaborative is to ensure that California’s homeowners and tenants receive the intended benefits secured for them under the Homeowner Bill of Rights by providing legal representation with a broad array of support services and practice resources.
