The Project

The Home Defense Program (HDP) provides advice, referrals and legal representation to low and moderate income homeowners victimized by home equity scams, including predatory mortgage lending practices. HDP saves clients’ homes by negotiating cancellations of mortgage loans; restructuring of mortgage loans with substantially lower balances, interest rates and monthly payments; and short payoffs of mortgage loans with reverse mortgages for senior homeowners.
