Summary
This report explores barriers to legal representation for homeowners seeking foreclosure assistance. Many people have legitimate legal defenses that can halt foreclosure actions, or help open the door to alternative solutions, such as mortgage refinancing, but few homeowners and tenants are aware of their legal defenses. Among other important interventions, lawyers can identify violations of state and federal laws, enforce consumer protection laws, and advance defenses that can either inspire lenders to agree on sustainable loan terms, or slow foreclosure proceedings enough to create time in which to obtain alternative housing. To increase access to legal representation among homeowners facing foreclosure, the report recommends that 1) funding for foreclosure legal representation be increased and directed to the hardest hit areas, often the areas with predominantly minority resident populations; 2) funding restrictions be removed to improve legal representation for foreclosure victims; 3) access to the courts and to other dispute resolution mechanisms be expanded for homeowners facing foreclosure proceedings; and 4) a homeowner's right to consult with a trained housing counselor and, as necessary, a lawyer prior to foreclosure proceedings be recognized
