Tri-Valley cities holding workshop today for those concerned about home foreclosure

Housing Advocates group hopes to educate endangered mortgage holders on services available

With the current economic situation affecting so many across California, the four cities in the Tri-Valley and the town of Danville are offering a seminar today on ways to prevent foreclosure.

The Tri-Valley Foreclosure Workshop and Clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dublin Public Library, 200 Civic Plaza, just off Dublin Boulevard.

Sponsored by the cities of Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and San Ramon and the town of Danville along with the nonprofit Housing and Economic Rights Advocates organization, the workshop will introduce important concepts for homeowners in distress, discuss California's foreclosure process, give an overview of the eviction process and examine debt obligations that remain even after foreclosure.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about these key issues and meet face-to-face with experienced housing counselors and attorneys.

Will it advise a 50 yr old engineer guy to use his savings (only retirement) to keep his house,k when the large equity has disappeared to zero, and kids want college next year...keep the expensive house or send kids to college. Obama's college loans are NOT available to ""rich Californians"" whose home ASSET is larger than on the arbitrary NATIONAL AVERAGE charts. BayAreans get screwed, since we're above nationaol average. I guess the real problem is being a 2 parent family. The programs & colleges go ga-ga falling over themselves to 'help' kids of a single mom. Is it fair to discriminate against other kids. or should kids and their grades be the standard for help. Having 2 parents should not be held against kids who want to go to college. If there's no equity to tap, there is no equity to tap. So just toss the sbove average kid aside ?? That's what colleges & the new 'Obama health care' loans expect. That's the kind of crap tucked inside those 2,000+ pages in health care bill...go figure ? ?
