10 Mar: Turner Measure To Regulate ‘Foreclosure Consultants’ Advances

TRENTON – The Senate Commerce Committee approved legislation today sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner that would regulate so-called “foreclosure consultants.”

“The United States’ recent foreclosure crisis has led to a jump in the number of people looking to make a quick buck as ‘foreclosure consultants,’” said Senator Turner, D-Mercer. “Too many families struggling to keep a roof over their heads and get by are getting taken advantage of, and there’s a clear need to weed out the con artists from those who can legitimately help families keep their homes.”
