[ARCHIVED] State Sponsored Foreclosure Seminar

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: June 30, 2014

Are you struggling to hold onto your home? Are you behind on mortgage payments? Are you nearing foreclosure? The State of Illinois is sponsoring an event to help homeowners who are struggling on their mortgage. The program has three goals:

1) Get consumers to meet with counselors or the lender sooner increasing the chance of success.
2) Provide education about the foreclosure process so homeowners can manage this crisis better.
3) Get homeowners to FREE counselors prior to being charged $3,000 to $12,000 and the possibility of the “company” disappearing with their money.

This event is on July 12, 2014 in Aurora, Illinois and is free to the public. This event is at the Prisco Community Center, 150 Illinois Ave, Aurora IL 60506. The event is sponsored by Governor Pat Quinn’s Office; Illinois Housing Development Authority; Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR); Illinois Department of Employment Security; and Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office and hosted by State Senator Linda Holmes, State Representatives Linda Chapa La Via, and State Representative Stephanie Kifowit.

The Mortgage Relief Project, which is part of the Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network established by Governor Pat Quinn, can help you take advantage of programs to help you lower your mortgage, avoid foreclosure and keep your home. Learn more at your local Mortgage Relief Project outreach event. Free housing counseling is available. You will also learn how to recognize the tell-tale signs of mortgage fraud.

To register for the event or for more Mortgage Relief Project information, please call toll-free at 1-800-532-8785 or visit
