Coronavirus Update: NCLC is moving forward with the Mortgage Training Conference scheduled for June 15-16 in Baltimore, MD, in the expectation that any restrictions on travel or large gatherings due to the COVID-19 situation will have ended by that time. We will continue to closely monitor this situation, and in the event that the conference does have to be cancelled, full refunds will be offered to all registrants.

In an age of rising home values, equity theft and foreclosure rescue scams are on the rise. A number of these scams look very familiar to advocates who were litigating them before the 2008 foreclosure crisis. New variations are developing as well. In this conference we will focus on legal claims and strategies to address home scams targeting existing homeowners. We will also tackle the flourishing market for contract for deed, lease-option, and rent-to-own scams. Join us as we delve into a variety of home scams, as well as current mortgage foreclosure hot topics like zombie mortgages, servicing transfers, and discovery battles in RESPA cases.

And don’t miss the all day pre-conference intensive, Intro to Consumer Bankruptcy Law and Practice. This Intensive is meant to help advocates who are new to bankruptcy get comfortable enough to file their first bankruptcy case. It will also be useful to advocates who have dipped their toe into bankruptcy practice already, but want to reach a deeper comfort level. We will apply the key concepts to an example fact pattern and talk about the tools you need to add bankruptcy to your array of consumer protection strategies. Additional fee required. Space is limited.

    • Bankruptcy overview
    • Key concepts in chapter 7 and 13 cases
    • Pre-filing considerations
