Foreclosure Fairness Act (Foreclosure Mediation)

Thanks to the Foreclosure Fairness Act, Washington homeowners facing foreclosure have the opportunity to be referred by a housing counselor or attorney to mediation with their lender to review available options to keep their home. DFI assists the Department of Commerce with education and outreach about the program. For more information visit www.homeownership.wa.gov.


DFI developed www.homeownership.wa.gov, a website for residents who are struggling to make their monthly mortgage payments. The website offers information about foreclosure assistance programs.
