EAGAN, Minn., Apr. 30, 2009 – The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act (H.R. 1106) has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and is now under consideration in the U.S. Senate. It is aimed at preventing mortgage foreclosures and enhancing mortgage credit availability.

The bill also is the subject of a white paper and webcast from securitization litigation expert Talcott J. Franklin, co-author of two noted legal treatises on securitization from West.

Franklin’s white paper, Mortgage Servicer Safe Harbor: A Legal and Policy Analysis, is available on  Franklin also leads a discussion about H.R. 1106 in a free on-demand webcast.
