Oakland County schedules home ownership retention seminar in West Bloomfield Township

Pontiac, MI — July 15, 2009 –

Another My Home — My Future Home Ownership Retention Seminar has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Bloomfield Township Library, 4600 Walnut Lake Rd., West Bloomfield. This meeting is free and open to all Oakland County homeowners.

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson has initiated free foreclosure intervention and prevention seminars to help families protect their most valuable asset, their home. The impact of rising foreclosures on Oakland County families and communities is of great concern to county and community leaders. Besides losing earned equity, damaging credit and other monetary losses, losing a home to foreclosure and displacing a family causes emotional, physical and psychological distress.

Topics at this seminar include budgeting, credit, choosing the right mortgage when refinancing, steps to stop the foreclosure process, and how to find assistance when you need it.

This event is hosted by Oakland County Commissioners Shelley Goodman Taub, John Scott and Marcia Gershenson, the West Bloomfield Library, the Township of West Bloomfield, and Oakland County Community & Home Improvement Division.
