Attorney General Balderas Issues Cease & Desist
Notice to Company for Illegal Mortgage Practices

Albuquerque, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced that the Office of the
Attorney General’s Consumer and Environmental Protection Division issued a Notice to Cease
and Desist to Capital Home Advocacy Center and National Advocacy Group. Based on a
complaint received from a New Mexico consumer, Capital Home Advocacy, formerly known as
National Advocacy Group, charges advance fees for home mortgage modification services. New
Mexico has banned advance fees for mortgage modification services through the Mortgage
Foreclosure Consultant Fraud Prevention Act, passed in 2010. The Mortgage Foreclosure
Consultant Fraud Prevention Act prohibits demand or payment of fees until the services have
been completed.
“Preying on New Mexico families struggling to keep their homes is disgusting and it’s against
the law,” said Attorney General Hector Balderas. “Companies who harm our families will be
held accountable to the fullest extent of the law by the Office of the Attorney General.”
Homeowners should not pay for mortgage modification help. Attorney General Balderas advises
consumers to seek mortgage modification services only from HUD-approved housing counseling
agencies which provide such help free of charge. Call HUD at 1-800-569-4287 for assistance and
referral. If you have questions, contact the Attorney General’s Homeownership Preservation
Program, Keep Your Home New Mexico, at 1-800-220-0350.
