Dec. 19 workshop free to the public - As the global economic downturn continues, some Tallahassee residents may be affected by foreclosure-related matters. To provide a broad overview of issues related to foreclosure, the City of Tallahassee is offering a workshop on Monday, Dec. 19, from 6-8 p.m. at the Early Learning Coalition office, 1940 N. Monroe St. (Northwood Centre, formerly Northwood Mall). The workshop is free and open to the public.
The workshop will provide information to help homeowners avoid foreclosure and also offer information to anyone who may have received notification from their lending institution that foreclosure proceedings may be imminent. Local attorney Keith Halpern will be available to meet with citizens one-on-one to discuss bank and credit union foreclosure letters, loan modification programs and related issues.
Citizens who would like one-on-one assistance are asked to bring the following documents: copies of all correspondence including legal papers, settlement sheet, hardship letter, loan modification paperwork and the actual mortgage and note.
This information and education workshop is intended only for general, educational and informational purposes. It is not intended to replace legal advice or advocate litigation and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
For more information, contact the City's Equity & Workforce Development Department at 891-8290 or visit Talgov.com/ewd.
