Globe reports on foreclosure process

Today's Globe has a front page story about the many foreclosure auctions taking place around the state these days. What's interesting about the article is not the stats - they are always difficult to put in the proper context - but the explanation and illustration of the way that foreclosure auctions have an impact on many lives - owners, tenants, neighbors, the entire community. The foreclosure process in Massachusetts is complex and conducted in a way that is neither logical nor easily understood by those not well versed in the law.

Several years ago I composed a Fact Sheet that sought to explain the foreclosure process; it's available here for anyone who is interested.
