Antioch Center for Continuing Education and
The Volunteers of America Dispute Resolution Center Present
Mediating Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Cases
An advanced mediation workshop with guest facilitator Bob Maxey
Thursday, December 8
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The "Foreclosure Fairness Act," which went into effect in Washington State in 2011, gives
distressed homeowners working with housing counselors or attorneys the right to
in-person mediation with the bank or company servicing their mortgage. This training is
being offered to increase the knowledge and expertise of all participants in this process
including mediators, attorneys, dispute resolution center staff, lenders, beneficiaries, and
Bob Maxey, who has mediated mortgage foreclosure cases since the beginning of the
successful program in Florida and has trained more than 1,000 mediators to successfully
handle these cases, leads this one-day training. The day features interactive scenarios
and will include ethics, confidentiality, conflicts of interest, and impasse avoidance.
The training also explores power imbalances, legal arguments, cultural concerns, and
unique case studies relating to the application of the Making Homes Affordable program;
including HAMP, HAFA, and other Retention and liquidation options.
Join colleagues from across the state to discuss what makes these cases unique, who
will likely attend the mediation, most likely sources for impasse, and what a mediator can
do to maximize the potential for a mediated settlement agreement.
