The Salem TCRC at 1200 West Rolla Road in Salem will be hosting a town hall meeting on March 26th at noon to discuss Missouri’s portion of a national agreement regarding foreclosure abuses. Assistant Attorney General Mary Mulhearn will be in Salem to discuss how this will affect current landowners and those who have lost their home to foreclosure. Of the $155 million dollars in benefits, $86 million will go to Missouri homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments; another $38 million will go to homeowners who are making payments every month, but now owe more principal on their home than they are worth; and more than $31 million will be targeted to Missouri homeowners who lost their homes due to foreclosure between January 1st, 2008 and December 21st, 2011 because of bad servicing practices. If you feel that you may qualify for these funds, a hotline has been set up for consumers who have questions about the settlements at 1-855-870-7676. The town hall meeting on March 26th is open to the public.
