State Creates Mortgage Hotline To Help Homeowners

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee attorney general and Tennessee Housing Development Agency have created a mortgage hotline for struggling homeowners.

The development comes after attorneys general across the country reached an agreement with the nation's top five mortgage services that will provide an estimated $140 million in relief to Tennesseans.

Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper said the idea behind the hotline is to make sure the state's homeowners get the help they deserve.

Homeowners calling the new hotline can learn about housing assistance programs or be directed to foreclosure prevention counselors.

The toll-free number is (855) 876-7283. It is available Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central time.
