Massachusetts Passes Homeowner Relief Bill


Yesterday, the Massachusetts legislature passed and Governor Duval Patrick (D) signed a bill that will grant additional safeguards to homeowners facing foreclosures.

In short, Lenders/servicers/anyone trying to foreclose on a 1-4 family residence will have to give the homeowner a 150 day notice that there is a default and that if it is not cured/paid within 150 days from the date of the notice, the foreclosing party will have the right to start a foreclosure proceeding.

The bill also makes lenders offer a modification or other workout plan unless a formula shows that to do so will net the foreclosing party less than a foreclosure sale (net present value test).

A full analysis will appear on Monday August 2, 1010
