Homeowners at risk of foreclosure can meet face to face with their mortgage lender and a federally approved housing counselor this week in the Bay Area.
The free sessions will offer homeowners the chance to learn whether they can qualify for an Obama Administration loan modification program or for some other option through their mortgage lender.
The sessions will be 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Hilton San Francisco Union Square, 333 O’Farrell St., and 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Oakland Marriott City Center, 1001 Broadway.
Fourteen lenders or mortgage servicers are slated to attend the two events.
Sponsors include the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Hope Now and NeighborWorks America.
Homeowners are asked to bring the following: a monthly mortgage statement; information for any other mortgages on the home; two most recent pay stubs and other income documentation, including a quarterly profit/loss statement for the self-employed; two most recent bank statements; account balances and monthly payments for credit cards and other debt; and estimates of monthly expenditures, including utilities, insurance and medical bills.
