Fed up, Springfield, Mass. Council approves tough anti-foreclosure laws

Lenders may face up to $30,000 if they screw up!

The Taunton Gazette-

The Springfield City Council has passed what advocates are calling the toughest municipal anti-foreclosure legislation in the country.

The council on Monday voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that requires mortgage lenders to engage in mediation with homeowners facing foreclosure, or face a $300 per day fine.

The council also passed a second ordinance requiring lenders to place a $10,000 bond to secure and maintain any of their foreclosed and vacant properties.

“If they don’t negotiate in the first 45 days, the process stretches out to 150 days,” explained Springfield City Councilor Amaad Rivera, who proposed the ordinance. A failure to mediate within the 150-day period easily amounts to $31,500 in fines, with the offender having to pay $300 per day after the initial 45-day period.
