Stand up against unnecessary evictions and foreclosures at this rally organized by Mass Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) and National Lawyers Guild.
Wednesday, January 11th
Noon - Speak-out for Justice at State House
1pm – Hearing, State House, Rm B-1
Legislative Hearing: 4 important bills written by those of us fighting Massachusetts Foreclosures!
- Stop unnecessary evictions: The banks should have to let former home-owners pay rent unless they have a reason to evict
- Mandatory mediation before foreclosure: Banks should have to provide someone authorized to negotiate with homeowners.
- Judicial review: Victims of predatory home loans should have their day in court before foreclosure.
- Banks should prove ownership before eviction: Give Housing Court power to make banks prove they own the property legally before eviction.
44,100 Massachusetts foreclosures since 2007 = 88,000 households threatened. Our state economy loses $4 billion every month! Time to say ENOUGH!
