mortgage foreclosure - Philadelphia Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Pilot Program

Philadelphia has recently (April 2008) started a Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Pilot Program.

Under the program, homeowners faced with foreclosure will have the opportunity, after seeing a housing counselor, to take part in a "concilliation conference" in which the parties try to work out an affordable modification of the loan or an affordable payment arrangement.
