Lawyers receive training in ‘foreclosure mediation’

Lawyers in Vermont were trained last week in "foreclosure mediation" in preparation for a new state law that requires mediation before a home is foreclosed on. Eleven states have recently passed statutes or court rules requiring some form of mediation or conference between a lender and borrower before a foreclosure. The laws are intended to relieve the courts of the tidal wave of foreclosures.
