Justice for Homeowners in Massachusetts!
Noon: Speak-out for Justice
1:00 pm: Hearing, Room B-1
Joint Committee on the Judiciary will hear testimony on 4 important bills written by those of us fighting Massachusetts Foreclosures!
* Stop unnecessary evictions: The banks should have to let former home-owners pay rent unless they have a reason to evict.
* Mandatory mediation before foreclosure: Banks should have to provide someone authorized to negotiate with homeowners.
* Judicial review: Victims of predatory home loans should have their day in court before foreclosure.
* Banks should prove ownership before eviction: Give Housing Court power to make banks prove they own the property legally before eviction.
44,100 Massachusetts foreclosures since 2007 = 88,000 households threatened.
