The Santa Barbara Public Library System is hosting the Legal Aid Foundation of
Santa Barbara County and SurePath Financial Solutions for a free public
information session on home foreclosure. The presentation, in English and
Spanish, will be in the Faulkner Gallery of the Central Library on Wednesday,
May 14 at 6:00 p.m. Legal Aid Foundation attorneys Jennifer Smith and George
Terterian will discuss California's new Homeowner Bill of Rights, assistance for
homeowners as risk for foreclosure, and how to avoid foreclosure avoidance
scams. The Central Library is located at 40 E. Anapamu St. in Santa Barbara.
The presentation will outline the broad spectrum of legal and financial services
available to distressed homeowners including legal intervention, loan
modifications, bankruptcy filing, and housing counseling. Where foreclosure
cannot be avoided, homeowners and tenants can be assisted through eviction
defense, re-location, financial education, credit rebuilding and referrals for
counseling and educational resources.
This program is supported by California's National Mortgage Settlement Grant
Program, which awarded 21 grants statewide to assist Californians affected by
the state's foreclosure crisis. "The foreclosure crisis has inflicted wide-
ranging and deep harm to California homeowners and communities," said Attorney
General Harris. "These grants will give homeowners and families the financial
and legal tools they need to recover."
