INFORMATION ABOUT THE NATIONAL MORTGAGE SETTLEMENT CAN BE FOUND AT: www.nationalmortgagesettlement.com.
Foreclosures and mortgage delinquencies in Washington are increasing in connection with high unemployment levels and borrowers with adjustable-rate mortgage loans seeing significant increases in their loan payments amid declining property values. The Attorney General’s Office is working to help Washington residents by cracking down on mortgage fraud and deceptive offers to help those in need, strengthening Washington's laws, warning homeowners about scams before they end up in a worse situation and directing residents to legitimate, affordable help.
