On June 4, Oregon enacted SB 558, which creates a foreclosure mediation program for judicial foreclosures. In 2012, Oregon enacted a law that required for nonjudicial foreclosures that a beneficiary (i) enter into mediation with a grantor for the purpose of negotiating a foreclosure avoidance measure, and (ii) notify a grantor if they are not eligible for any foreclosure avoidance measure or if the grantor has not complied with the terms of a foreclosure avoidance measure. The new law expands that program to cover judicial foreclosures and makes changes to the structure of the overall mediation program.
