Homeowners behind on mortgage payments or underwater in their home loans can talk with their lenders about avoiding foreclosure at a state-sponsored event at the Trumbull Marriott on Friday, May 30.

Attorney General George Jepsen and state Banking Commissioner Howard Pitkin announced the event at a Tuesday press conference. The Trumbull event will be the seventh the state has held.

“We continue to do these because the response rate continues to be so high and the feedback we get is so positive,” Pitkin said.

The event is free as is nearby parking. It will take place between 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Jepsen said he has attended nearly every mortgage assistance event held so far and has been approached by homeowners who report making progress on their mortgage issues.

“Walking through those halls and seeing families sitting face-to-face with their mortgage servicer is really heartwarming,” Jepsen said. “The bottom line is these events work. They bring you face-to-face with the company servicing your mortgage and creates the opportunity to see if meaningful relief, usually in the form of principal reduction, can be achieved.”

Homeowners looking for more information on the event can visit the state website at or calling 1-877-472-8313.
