California foreclosure clinics.
While the dates and times of the California foreclosure prevention clinics will vary, some of the locations and organizations that have run them in the past are indicated below. Most cities, towns, and counties across California will have some type of workshop that will occur in their area from time to time.
Homeowners who have received a foreclosure notice, or people who are just struggling to pay their mortgage, can benefit from the services available at a free clinic. Most will allow borrowers the ability to meet face to face with a HUD approved housing counselor. Oftentimes major banks and lenders are also on site. This allows homeowners the ability to immediate apply for solutions such as loan modifications, fee waivers, principal reductions, and other forms of help.
