  1. Mark,

    Please mention the “Right to Rent” policy. Many people in mortgage trouble could benefit from its adoption by policy makers. The following is from the Center for Economics and Policy Research (CEPR):

    “The main point of the plan is that those who are facing foreclosure should have the option to remain in their home for a substantial period of time as renters. There are also numerous advantages in enacting Right to Rent legislation: it is simple, it can take effect immediately, it requires no taxpayer dollars, and it creates no new bureaucracy.”

    here’s a link to a detailed description:

  2. Trying to get the word out to renters whose homes are being foreclosed on — we did a post on the federal law that gives renters additional rights, with links to two organizations (including the Public Justice Center here in Baltimore) that offer assistance and downloads/toolkits to help renters in court.
