Nevada Alters Foreclosure Mediation Program


Recently, Nevada enacted AB 273, which altered the state’s foreclosure mediation program to require a trustee under a deed of trust to send certain information concerning the foreclosure mediation program to a borrower concurrently with, but separately from, the copy of the notice of default and election to sell that also must be sent to the borrower. The bill also requires that a borrower facing foreclosure be automatically enrolled in the foreclosure mediation program unless the borrower elects to waive mediation or fails to pay his or her share of the program fee. The bill also adds, among other things, certain procedural requirements for mediators and trustees. These changes become effective on October 1, 2013.
