The third in a series of state-sponsored assistance events for Connecticut homeowners with troubled mortgages will be held July 10 at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.
The event follows two similar events, one in Hartford in November and another in Bridgeport in March, at which an estimated, 2,800 borrowers sought help. The events are sponsored by the governor, the state banking department and the attorney general’s office.
Attorney General Jepsen said that previous two events have helped residents across Connecticut get answers they need to move forward, even if they do not qualify for modifications.
“While not everyone will qualify for a loan modification, these events, overall, have been highly successful because we are getting hundreds of people to meet with representatives of their banks. They are able to jump-start or expedite their loan review and come away with a name and a number to call – a single point of contact – as they continue the process,” Jepsen said.
Those who are unable to attend can call the banking department’s foreclosure assistance hotline at 1-877-472-8313.
The mortgage assistance forum is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the University of Connecticut Student Union in Storrs. Free parking is available in the South Parking Garage. Parking tickets will be validated at the event.
Among the banks sending representatives are: Bank of America; Chelsea Groton Bank; Citibank; First Niagara Bank; GMAC Mortgage; HSBC National Bank USA; Indymac/OneWest; JPMorgan Chase & Co.; McCue Mortgage; Ocwen Loan Servicing; People’s United Bank; PNC Mortgage; Webster Bank; and Wells Fargo Bank. Also attending will be HUD-approved housing counselors, Connecticut Fair Housing Center attorneys, Judicial branch foreclosure mediators and representatives of Statewide Legal Services, The Workplace, Inc. and other state and non-profit agencies.
