I thought I'd post this, because I know at least one friend would be interested.
Borrowers can talk face-to-face with their lender and housing counselors to work out a plan for their mortgage
Gillette Stadium – Fidelity Investments Clubhouse, East
One Patriot Place, Foxborough, MA
Parking lot entrance P1
Tuesday, August 12, 2008 – 1 PM to 8 PM
Free to attend; free parking; free public transportation available
The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston will host a foreclosure prevention workshop at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, August 12, from 1 PM to 8 PM. The event is an opportunity for homeowners who are in financial distress, or concerned about foreclosure, to sit down with their lender face-to-face, and avoid foreclosure if possible.
Borrowers should bring documentation on their income, expenses, debts, and mortgage to the workshop, so they are fully prepared to talk with their lender. The documentation may also be useful in talking with a housing or credit counselor.
For more information, borrowers are invited to call a special number set up by the Federal Reserve Bank, 1-800-882-1600. Borrowers who call this number can leave their name, questions about the event, and a callback number. Calls should be returned within 24 hours. Information is also available on this web site: www.theinformedhomebuyer.org
This event is free and open to all borrowers in difficulty. Some borrowers are being alerted to the event by their lender or loan-servicer, but no invitation is required to attend.
