Public Act 142 of 2019

Introduced by Rep. Triston Cole (R) on March 7, 2019
To require that when executing a “foreclosure by advertisement” proceeding (rather than foreclosing by taking a delinquent mortgage borrower to court), a mortgage lender or servicer must include additional details in the published foreclosure notice, including contact information for the lender's lawyer, details about the foreclosure sale itself, the property’s street address (not just a legal description), and more. This revises the disclosures already required under current state laws for this.   Official Text and Analysis.
