Foreclosure Prevention Pro Bono Project
This project provides pro bono direct representation, brief advice and counsel, or counsel services to homeowners and non-profit agencies working with homeowners to prevent foreclosure. The website also includes foreclosure prevention resources in Maryland.
In the first quarter of 2008, Maryland was among the top ten states with the highest number of foreclosure filings. It is estimated that there may be over 25,000 foreclosure events in the state by the end of the year. This creates the potential for the loss of homes and financial ruin for thousands of our citizens. You can help.
The Maryland legislature enacted emergency legislation related to the foreclosure process to offer greater opportunities for homeowners to preserve their homes. New notice requirements, additional defenses and modifications to the process itself may enable families and individuals a chance to either prevent foreclosure where feasible or mitigate their losses. They need legal counsel, however, to assist them in the process. (Authors)
