The HBOR Collaborative presents a free all-day training on the nuts and bolts of representing tenants and homeowners under the Homeowner Bill of Rights. The training will cover HBOR basics and provide practical tips for representing clients. HBOR became effective on January 1, 2013 and codifies the broad intentions of the National Mortgage Settlement’s pre-foreclosure protections. This day-long training will provide 2 separate tracks of training, totaling 5.00 hours of MCLE, including 1.00 hours of Ethics credit. One track will focus on homeowners issues, including HBOR, HAMP, and defending foreclosures. The other will focus on tenants issues, including eviction defense, Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act, and litigation strategy.
A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The HBOR Collaborative is funded by the Office of the California Attorney General under the National Mortgage Settlement. The Collaborative is a partnership of four organizations, National Housing Law Project, National Consumer Law Center, Tenants Together and Western Center on Law and Poverty. We offer free training, technical assistance, litigation support, and legal resources to California’s consumer attorneys and the judiciary on all aspects of the new California Homeowner Bill of Rights, including its tenant protections. The goal of the Collaborative is to ensure that California’s homeowners and tenants receive the intended benefits secured for them under the Homeowner Bill of Rights by providing legal representation with a broad array of support services and practice resources.

This training was made possible by the generous support of the State Bar of California and the Housing Opportunities Collaborative.
