SPRINGFIELD – Aiming to help curb local home foreclosures, State Senator Andy Manar (D–Bunker Hill) and State Representative Sue Scherer (D–Decatur) will be hosting a mortgage relief workshop for local homeowners on August 10.
With assistance from Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation staff, the mortgage relief workshop will offer homeowners an opportunity to lower mortgage costs and to avoid foreclosure.
“The mortgage relief workshop we are hosting on Aug 10 is part of a broader state anti-foreclosure strategy by the Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network to help people who are behind on their mortgages and who are at risk of foreclosure,” Manar said.
At the workshop, homeowners should bring basic financial information in order to assess their eligibility for mortgage reduction assistance, including:
• Current mortgage statement
• 2011 & 2012 W-2 tax returns and schedules
• Recent paystubs and other income documentation,
• Recent utility bill
• Profit/loss statement if self-employed (last 6 months)
• Budget of household expenses.
