Ocwen Financial Corporation has invited borrowers who need mortgage assistance to attend one of several upcoming housing events to explore possible mortgage solutions that could help them stay in their homes. This effort is part of Ocwen’s continued outreach, in partnership with community leaders and nonprofit housing organizations, to bring real solutions to struggling homeowners in the United States. Ocwen Home Retention Agents will be present at all the upcoming events to offer homeowners free, face-to-face, individualized advice on finding the right mortgage solutions. Ocwen borrowers will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved financial counselors to discuss their unique situations.
“Hardworking homeowners in many neighborhoods across the nation still feel the effects of the 2008 housing crisis,” said Jill Showell, senior vice president of Government and Community Relations at Ocwen. “By partnering with respected leaders and organizations within these communities, we aim to bring trusted advice to borrowers to help maintain the dream of owning a home.”
The following events are scheduled throughout the fall. Ocwen homeowners in these areas are invited to attend in order to receive information and assistance ranging from preparing their Request for Mortgage Assistance (RMA) package to information on state and federal foreclosure assistance programs.
