Two new North Carolina laws were passed yesterday to provide some additional protection to homeowners facing foreclosure.
Beginning June 1, once a homeowner in North Carolina requests a loan modification, all foreclosure actions must be suspended. Currently, the law allows mortgagors to continue pursuing foreclosures against homeowners who are waiting to have their loans modified.
The second law requires mortgagors to provide clear and timely communications if a homeowner requests assistance.
