Helping Heroes Keep Their Homes Act

Posted on December 30, 2010


Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello instituted a bill, which was passed by Congress to end banks foreclosing on a veteran’s home, whether during or after their tour of duty. This bill, entitled H.R. 3976, the Helping Heroes Keep Their Homes Act prevents lenders from foreclosing on a veteran’s home within nine months of their military service.
Perriello is also working to help disabled vets keep up with cost of living adjustments in their compensation. For more information on this and other veteran’s benefits worked on by Congressman Perriello, see this link.
For foreclosure, real estate and elder law legal help, call Christine Axsmith at Axsmith Law.  The Federal Trade Commission has great information on helping prevent foreclosure in Washington DC.
