Consumers can get aid now to avoid foreclosure – Bangor Daily News

Consumers can get aid now to avoid foreclosure – Bangor Daily News.

If you receive a foreclosure notice, you can ask for help through Maine’s court system. By sending the court and your mortgage company a letter within 20 days saying you want to keep your home, you can start a mediation process; that gives you a chance to make a deal with the company before foreclosure takes place.

A series of workshops in Maine aims to turn the above statistics around. Two workshops are set for 9 and 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, at Penquis, 262 Harlow St., Bangor. The workshops are organized by government entities and social action groups.

The Maine Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection is taking a lead role in the effort, known as the Maine Housing Counseling Network. It pairs mortgage holders who are having problems with trained counselors who can help.
