Courts Unveil Foreclosure Guide Videos
August 24, 2016
The Maryland Judiciary and Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service have created videos to help homeowners understand foreclosure.
“The Foreclosure Process” and “Foreclosure Mediation” are videos that aim to help viewers understand what foreclosure is and the mediation procedure.
“Through these new videos, Maryland homeowners will gain a better understanding of the legal process, terminology, and options that may be available to them should they face foreclosure proceedings,” Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera said in a statement. “We have tailored the content of these videos to address the needs of people facing foreclosure now, who may be unable to afford legal representation during this time or prefer to represent themselves.”
Maryland had the third-highest foreclosure rate in the country, .90 percent, according to a July report by RealtyTrac.
The new videos are part of the court’s self-help library, My Laws, My Courts, My Maryland.
They can be viewed at www.mdcourts.gov/video/selfhelp/foreclosuremediation.html and www.mdcourts.gov/video/selfhelp/foreclosureprocess.html.
