In Northern Virginia, The Blog of Legal Times reports:
- Legal Services of Northern Virginia (LSNV) is launching a new program designed to help low-income homeowners facing foreclosure. The Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project (FLAP) is designed to provide a range of legal assistance. Potential clients call LSNV to make an appointment to meet with an attorney and housing counselor. The three review the homeowners’ financial information and possible legal solutions. The attorney and housing counselor may also offer advice about options lenders may accept to prevent a foreclosure.
- FLAP is similar to other programs around the country including the Foreclosure Prevention Pro Bono Project in Maryland and the Foreclosure Prevention Collaborative Initiative in Boston.
