Homeowner Bill of Rights: On Wednesday, July 18 Governor Brown signed the California Homeowner Bill of Rights. The legislation is intended to protect homeowners who are trying to modify their mortgages.

C.A.R. has identified four major provisions:

    1. Prohibiting Dual-Tracking: Loan servicers will not be allowed to initiate a foreclosure on a property which is also in the middle of a short-sale process.Single
    2. Point of Contact: Servicers will be required to provide a single point contact to homeowners who are seeking to modify their mortgage.
    3. Expanded Notice Requirements: Servicers will need to provide borrowers more advance notice before they take action on a loan modification application or if they are seeking a foreclosure.
    4. Legal Recourse: Loan servicers could be subject to injunctions and civil penalties if they file inaccurate mortgage documents or commit other violations.
