By Jim Donovan:  Delaware homeowners who are behind on mortgage payments, face foreclosure, or have questions about their mortgage can meet face-to-face with six of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders at free housing workshops next week in Wilmington and Dover.

Homeowners can attend the events, on June 10 in Dover and June 11 in Wilmington, to discuss their loans with their banks, connect with a non-profit housing counselor, get information from the Attorney General Beau Biden’s Office and Delaware State Housing Authority about government programs, and learn how to prevent foreclosure-related frauds and scams.

At each workshop, mortgage servicers, state employees, and HUD-certified housing counselors will discuss mortgage modifications, government homeowner programs, and foreclosure scams.  No reservations are needed. 

Workshops will take place as follows:

Monday, June 10, 2013

1 – 7 pm

Modern Maturity Center

1121 Forrest Avenue, Dover

Participating servicers: Bank of America, Citi, M&T Bank, Ocwen, and Wells Fargo

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

3 – 7 pm

Chase Center on the Riverfront

815 Justison Street, Wilmington

Participating servicers: Bank of America, Citi, JP Morgan Chase, M&T Bank, Ocwen, and Wells Fargo

Homeowners who wish to meet on-site with their mortgage servicer should bring information about current income and details about their current mortgage, including loan number, monthly payment, interest rate, and loan balance.

Delawareans who have questions about next week’s workshops should call the Delaware Homeowner Relief Hotline at 1-800-220-5424, e-mail mortgage@state.de.us, or visit http://www.delawarehomeownerrelief.com.
