MORTGAGE MODIFICATION MEDIATION PROGRAM AND PROCEDURES

Request for Public Comments until July 22, 2020

The United States Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of Ohio (the “Court”) is establishing a mortgage modification mediation program (“MMM Program”) as a forum for debtors and creditors to reach consensual resolution regarding the treatment of property at risk of foreclosure or other adverse action. The goal of the MMM Program is to facilitate communication and exchange of information in a confidential setting and encourage the parties to finalize a feasible and beneficial agreement under the supervision of the Court. The MMM Program is an optional program.

The MMM Program procedures and related forms are available on the Court’s website at https://www.ohsb.uscourts.gov/mortgage-modification-mediation-program.  Comments are invited and may be submitted electronically by clicking Here.  The deadline for submitting comments is July 22, 2020.
