Free one-on-one counseling is available Saturday for homeowners facing foreclosures in Montgomery County.
The event is being held in Gaithersburg from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bohrer Park Activity Center, located at Summit Hall Farm, 506 S. Frederick Avenue.
“Unfortunately, at a time when homeowners facing foreclosure are under a huge amount of stress, there has been a proliferation of unscrupulous scam artists who prey on them, sometimes charging them thousands of dollars to get a loan modification service that never arrives,” said County Executive Ike Leggett.
Homeowners will receive one-on-one foreclosure prevention counseling offered by trained representatives from four County-approved housing counseling agencies—Asian-American Homeownership Counseling, HomeFree USA, Housing Initiative Partnership and the Latino Economic Development Corporation.
In addition, pro bono legal advice will be available at the event.
