The Attorney General’s Office will host free statewide housing workshops to help Delawareans who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure.

The workshops are offered to facilitate loan modifications, reduce foreclosures, and provide information to help residents stay in their homes and avoid foreclosure fraud. Since 2009, more than 1,500 homeowners have attended two-dozen similar workshops sponsored by his office.

The workshops will run from 2 to 6:30 p.m., Friday, March 30 at the New Castle Gilliam Center, 77 Reads Way, New Castle; 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, March 31 at the Outlook at the Duncan Center, 500 W. Loockerman St., Dover; and 2 to 5:30 p.m. at the Sussex County Government West Complex, 22215 DuPont Blvd., Georgetown.

Homeowners who have missed mortgage payments, are facing foreclosure or suspect foreclosure fraud can receive immediate on-site help from housing professionals. At each workshop, mortgage servicers, state employees, and HUD-certified housing counselors will discuss mortgage modifications, government homeowner programs and foreclosure scams.
