Bill headed to Gov. John Kitzhaber
May 22, 2013
Oregon House approved an expansion of the foreclosure mediation program the Legislature created last year which had failed to gain traction after changes in the legal landscape. “When the Legislature created the mediation program a year ago, most foreclosures occurred outside the court system.” Most foreclosures pursued by lenders are now in court. Now, under the new Senate Bill 558A, the program would apply to foreclosures pursued by lenders in courts.
