This spring marks a critical juncture for two of the California Attorney General’s key foreclosure prevention initiatives: the National Mortgage Settlement and the Homeowner Bill of Rights. These events will provide an opportunity for advocates, legal aid attorneys, housing counselors, judges, and private attorneys to learn about these initiatives.


April 2013 also marks one year from the court approval of the National Mortgage Settlement (NMS) and six months from the effective date of its mortgage servicing standard reforms. The Settlement applies to Bank of America, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Ally/GMAC. This event series will present the progress and challenges of the first year of the NMS and feature:

  • Consumer Relief delivered under the NMS
  • Servicing Standards progress
  • California Monitor Program's Initiatives 

The Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR) became effective on January 1, 2013. HBOR codifies in state law the broad intentions of the NMS pre-foreclosure protections. It represents a dramatic change to California’s foreclosure process and will present obstacles and opportunities for homeowners and industry. The forum will provide participants with: 

  • Overview of HBOR law
  • Resources for HBOR litigation
  • Synthesis of HBOR with NMS, CFPB servicing rules, and other laws
