Illinois Supreme Court Issues Rules on Foreclosures
The court says the rules announced Friday are aimed at avoiding abuses during the foreclosure process. The guidelines require lenders to prove to judges that they have exhausted all possibilities to help a homeowner before seeking a foreclosure judgment against the borrower.
All mortgage lenders will be subject to these rules. The court's guidelines will be in effect in all counties no later than June 1. Lenders will have to provide an affidavit showing all the programs that were offered to individual borrowers to help them avoid foreclosure.
Foreclosures in Illinois at times can last almost two years. The new rules aren't expected to shorten that timeframe.
