Program Description

In light of the subprime lending crisis and the increases in mortgage foreclosures, lenders and government have opted to change the rules under which borrowers and lenders operate. The New York State Bar Association’s Real Property Law Section is responding with this timely program that will not only address the foreclosure process, but also the foreclosure defenses and remedies from the borrowers' standpoint. Recent developments addressed by Congress and the New York Legislature have given the practitioner new procedures to follow in representing the borrower in the foreclosure process as well as arming the borrower with more rights to protect the property. The mandatory settlement conference and the availability of non-lawyer counselors are but two of the new features in this foreclosure environment that will be covered during this program.

An expert faculty will give those in attendance an overview of recent legislation along with recent court cases. The faculty will discuss how the recent developments may affect the borrowers' ability to negotiate short sales, deeds in lieu of foreclosure, forbearance agreements, and other settlement tactics. Attend this program and get the latest information and practice tips you need to protect your clients.
