NHLP’s December Foreclosure Newsletter features an update to our foreclosure practice guide and post-foreclosure UD guide. It also has summaries of recent cases, legislation (SB 1150), and regulatory updates.
In January 2016, the National Housing Law Project (NHLP) has been awarded funding from the State Bar of California, arising from the U.S. Department of Justice’s settlement with Citibank and Bank of America. This funding allows NHLP to provide free foreclosure prevention support services to California legal services and consumer attorneys. The grant will help to continue implementation of the state’s Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR), which establishes protections for homeowners and tenants facing foreclosure. NHLP will use the grant funds to provide an array of free supports and HBOR resources to California legal services and consumer attorneys.
