Mediation Workshop: Mediating Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Cases

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

housing counselors.


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.
