Update:  A training has also been added in Ontario, CA, on March 3rd and 4th at the University of La Verne, College of Law.  There is a one-day training for attorneys who work with tenants (Monday) or two-day for attorneys who work with homeowners: Registration.

The HBOR Collaborative presents a free all-day training on the nuts and bolts of representing tenants and homeowners under California’s Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR). The training will cover HBOR basics and provide practical tips for representing clients. HBOR became effective on January 1, 2013 and codifies the broad intentions of the National Mortgage Settlement’s pre-foreclosure protections. It also provides tenants in foreclosed properties with a host of substantive and procedural protections. The training will cover the interplay of HBOR with NMS, CFPB servicing rules, and the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. We will also discuss HBOR’s attorney fee provisions.  Registration information will be available soon.

5 Hours of MCLE Credit

Lunch will be provided.
