In light of the recent passage of the Homeowner Bill of Rights legislation, Assemblymember Tony Mendoza (D-56) will be hosting a free Town Hall meeting this week to help educate his constituents on this topic.
The event, which will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Norwalk City Hall (located at 12700 Norwalk Blvd.), will help those in the 56th district find out about this new legisltation and how it can aid them.
Brian Nelson, who is the California Special Assistant Attorney General, will be in attendance to explain the new Homeowner Bill of Rights and how the Attorney General’s office can be used as a resource. Felipe Agredano, Associate Director of the Montebello Housing Development Corporation, will also be on hand to discuss what to do when facing short sales, bankruptcy and loan modifications.
“If you are a homeowner, rent a home or just want to become educated on what the Homeowner Bill of Rights is, I welcome you to attend my Town Hall meeting,” said Assemblymember Mendoza.
The new legislation, which was signed into law on July 11, aims to protect homeowners and borrowers during the mortgage and foreclosure process.
