Foreclosure Mediation

Foreclosure Mediation is an option that can be used to help you keep your home. If you have received a summons in the last 21 days and are located in Winnebago or Boone Counties in Illinois, you can apply for the mediation program.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The foreclosure mediation program is set up and operated by the 17th Judicial Circuit Court to improve communication between homeowners and lenders. Please read the home page for general information. The program has very specific deadlines and requirements. HomeStart is providing intake services to the Court for this program. Please contact our Rockford office regarding questions about deadlines and requirements.
