Foreclosure Assistance for Homeowners Struggling with Property Taxes

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Following up on legislation passed in the fall of last year, the city of Philadelphia this week announced changes to the city’s foreclosure prevention program designed to help struggling homeowners who are facing foreclosure after falling behind on their property taxes.During an announcement at the Philadelphia City Hall on Monday, government representatives and anti-poverty advocates united to announce a new $400,000 Award from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Authority’s Fair Grant Program. State Sen. Vincent Hughes said that the award was designed “to deal specifically with all the issues around foreclosure and preventing folks from going down that path.”The initiative is the latest program designed to combat Philadelphia foreclosures related to property tax delinquency. According to the Philadelphia City Council website, between 2010 and 2016, Philadelphia saw a 1,210 percent increase in tax foreclosure filings. The website explains that “a City Council analysis found that the majority of tax foreclosure filings against owner-occupied homes were located in low-income communities of color. In many cases, economically vulnerable homeowners count their home as their sole asset of value.”“We successfully mobilized to stop mortgage foreclosures during the housing crisis, which prevented homelessness, displacement, and mass disruption in our communities,” Council President Darrell L. Clarke (5th District) said. “However, the City—in a well-intentioned effort to increase revenue collections—became far more aggressive in filing tax foreclosures. Contributing to homelessness or deeper poverty by seizing the homes of people in economic crisis is just not good policy.”In addition to the new award from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Authority’s Fair Grant Program, last October the Philadelphia City Council passed legislation to modify the city’s Owner-Occupied Payment Agreement (OOPA), a program designed to help homeowners avoid tax foreclosures. Applying for OOPA relief allows homeowners to avoid foreclosure and set up payment plans, and to roll future tax payments into existing payment plan agreements if they qualify. OOPA applicants can also request to meet with a housing counselor.”Tax delinquencies have been an ongoing problem in the city of Philadelphia,” said Stephen M. Hladik, Partner, Hladik, Onorato & Federman, LLP. “At the end of 2017, there were over 70,000 parcels in the city that had delinquent taxes. With that scope of delinquent properties, the tax loss to the city is staggering, exceeding $150 million. At that sum, the city is forced into foreclosing on properties to try and recoup the lost taxes. The city reviewed where the predominant delinquencies were and it became apparent that the less affluent sections of the city were often the places where the percentage of properties that were delinquent were higher. This new program serves to benefit the hard-hit homeowners, and it offers a means for owners to make monthly payments on taxes and still maintain a roof over their heads. Property owners may also be able to be free of interest and penalties, depending on their income level. A sizable grant from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency will greatly assist. The program sounds like it will be a good way for homeowners to obtain relief and keep their houses. In turn, it will benefit lenders and servicers, as it could lessen the burden of advancing taxes to prevent tax sales.”“We applaud the Philadelphia City Council for stepping in to assist those homeowners who are struggling to pay their property taxes,” said Bradley J. Osborne, Managing Attorney at Richard M. Squire & Associates, LLC, a Legal League 100 member firm that operates in Pennsylvania. “The tax foreclosure prevention measures are similar to those measures implemented by the city during the last economic downturn. Our office has successfully worked side-by-side through the Philadelphia County Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Program with the four agencies awarded the grant to assist seniors. And while the measures are intended to benefit the homeowners in Philadelphia, they also result in additional protection for mortgage lenders and servicers by virtue of slowing down the tax foreclosure process which can negatively impact their mortgage liens.” Foreclosure Assistance for Homeowners Struggling with Property Taxes Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Journal, News Previous: More College Grads Moving Back Home Next: Mr. Cooper Brings the Power of AI to Homeowners The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Postcenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: David Wharton Foreclosure Foreclosure Relief 2018-05-08 David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago May 8, 2018 4,025 Views Tagged with: Foreclosure Foreclosure Relief David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

How Eaglets were eliminated from FIFA U17 World Cup

first_imgRelatedPosts Bergwijn scores winner as Netherlands edge Poland Malibu Oil: Nigeria expecting $200m from Netherlands, Switzerland — Malami Dutch soccer players boycott TV show over Black Pete remarks Five-time champions Nigeria bade bye to the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup finals in Brazil after losing 1-3 to late bloomers Netherlands in their Round of 16 clash in Goiania in a match that finished in the early hours of Wednesday in Nigeria.The Dutch lost their first two matches of the competition and only got into the knockout stage thanks to their 4-0 defeat of USA in their final group phase encounter, while Nigeria topped Group B following wins over Hungary and Ecuador and shock defeat to Australia.The Golden Eaglets’ untidy habit of conceding early in their games proved ill-advised this time as Sontje Hansen scored in the fourth minute and then followed up with two more goals to render Olakunle Olusegun’s goal from a blistering shot in the 12th minute of no effect.A game of very high intensity at the Estadio Olimpico was decided by tactical awareness, silky skill, economic football and good organisation, with the Eaglets doing most of the running but failing to get their passes right in the critical zone. They were also guilty of wayward shooting.After Olusegun cancelled Hansen’s first goal, the Nigerian youngsters had themselves to blame for Hansen’s second, which arrived no thanks to sloppy defending of a free kick in the 15th minute. A poorly cleared ball fell at the feet of the gifted Hansen at the edge of the box, and he let fly a rasping drive that goalkeeper Daniel Jinadu had no answer to.Oluwatimilehin Adeniyi got a poor touch on the ball from Ibrahim Sa’id’s cross in the 22nd minute and a stinging Sa’id shot was parried by the Dutch goalie 11 minutes later.In the second half, Charles Etim’s good shot in the 54th minute only rattled the Dutch goalkeeper, and four minutes later, Akinkunmi Amoo should have done better when he had only the opposing goalkeeper to beat.Coach Manu Garba introduced Divine Nwachukwu and Ibraheem Jabaar, while withdrawing Peter Olawale and Sa’id, but Nigeria could find no way back into the game in the manner they did against Hungary and Ecuador in their first two matches.Rather, 11 minutes from time, the Video Assistant Referee spotted a handball by Clement Ikenna as Nigeria defended another Dutch onslaught, and Hansen swept the ball past Jinadu for Netherlands’ third goal.

Neymar stars as Brazil beat Mexico to reach last eight

first_imgNeymar scored one goal and played a key role in the second as Brazil edged out Mexico in Samara to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for a seventh consecutive time.Brazil did not have it all their own way, especially in an opening period dominated by the Central Americans, but the five-time winners grew into what became a controlled performance.It means Mexico are once again eliminated at the last-16 stage – as they have been at every World Cup since 1994.They did have plenty of chances early on, and it was only after a largely frustrating first half for Brazil that Neymar started the move to put his side ahead.His run across goal and clever backheel won Willian space, and the Chelsea midfielder only needed two touches to drive into box and lay the ball across for the world’s most expensive player to slide home.It was Brazil’s 227th goal at the World Cup, meaning they overtake Germany as the all-time top scorers. Just moments earlier, Mexico’s Jesus Gallardo wasted a brilliant chance when he shot wildly over the crossbar instead of playing in Hirving Lozano.For much of the second half, Mexico’s bright start was just a memory, but Carlos Vela forced a save from Brazil goalkeeper Alisson with his side’s first shot on target not long after going behind.In the match’s closing stages they rallied once more, but Brazil defended stoically before doubling their lead on the break through a Roberto Firmino tap-in after Neymar’s effort was diverted by the toe of Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.Brazil will face Belgium or Japan – who meet in Rostov-on-Don in the day’s second match – in their last-eight tie in Kazan on Friday.last_img read more
