Foreclosure prevention workshops continue Jan. 3 in Woodbury

Residents can attend a foreclosure prevention workshop from 5:30  to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 3, at the R.H. Stafford Library in Woodbury.

The Washington County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) and the Minnesota Home Ownership Association, in partnership with the library, will present information on how to handle foreclosure situations. The workshop is for anyone who wants to ask questions and get advice from trained foreclosure prevention counselors.

Anyone behind on a mortgage, is worried about keeping up with mortgage payments and wants to know more about the foreclosure process can attend. Those worried about foreclosure should seek help immediately because waiting might limit the options.

The workshops are open houses and no pre-registration is required. The workshop includes a 45-minute presentation summarizing the foreclosure process. Participants also have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a foreclosure prevention counselor. It will help the counselor to respond to any concerns if participants bring the following: any communication received from a lender or loan servicer; proof of income (e.g., recent pay stub), and a copy of a mortgage statement.

The library is at 8595 Central Park Place, Woodbury. The meeting will be in Rooms A and B.
