Foreclosure open houses begin in Georgetown

The Delaware Attorney General’s office begins a series of home foreclosure workshops today in Georgetown.

Representatives from the Attorney General’s Foreclosure Prevention Office will be at First State Community Action Agency, 308 N. Railroad Ave., from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.  They will be sharing advice on how to keep from going into foreclosure by working with various agencies and institutions.  Also, tips on avoid foreclosure scams will be given.  Other meetings are being held this week in Dover, Wilmington and Middletown.  For more information call 1-800-220-5424.  The Foreclosure Prevention Office was created last fall.  “Our open houses are being offered to help consumers who have fallen behind on mortgage payments, are facing foreclosure, or having difficulty engaging with their lender in a meaningful conversation about their loan,” Attorney General Beau Biden said. “We’re making sure that homeowners in communities across our state have an opportunity to meet with our knowledgeable staff to understand the foreclosure process, be aware of their rights, and have access to all of the assistance available to them.”
