Philadelphia Group Helps
To Adjust Loans1 for
, General Benefit
How a Philadelphia bnslneas
group found a way to reduce fore
closures on homes Is summarized
in a statement received by Roy H.
Wassam of the Salem credit re
porting 'bureau from the federal
department of commerce.
. The statement points oat that
self Interest demands that com
munities take action to prevent
foreclosures, and shows how the
Joint Welfare committee of the
Philadelphia Real Estate board
found a way to do this, and how
the board helped in one way and
another 85 per cent of 3.500 cases
heard In the past three years.
The committee was set np to
give the public free advice on real
estate and financing problems. It
consists of nine members appoint
ed Jointly by the president of the
real estate board and the presi
dent of the League of Building
and Loan associations. The mem
bers serve without pay.
At Its weekly meeting, the com
mitte heard from 25 to 125 ap
plicants for aid, these including
home owners threatened with
foreclosure because the mortga
gees refuse to renew mortgages
coming due; home owners in dan
ger because, due to unemploy
ment, they are unable to pay tax
es or Interest; and home owners
whose lowered Incomes force them
to seek ways of refinancing their
properties. Some seek redress
from exorbitant financing charges.
A member of the committee
helps each applicant fill ont a
blank giving essential personal
data and information on the prop
erty, and on this basis the com
mittee determines disposition of
the case. Where circumstances
seem to justify such action, it re
quests the mortgagee to cooperate
in working out a solution that will
tide the mortgagor over the emer
gency. As most hpme loans there are
made by building and loan asso
ciations, the committee Is able at
times to recommend a "reinstate
ment" which provides for pay
ment by the lender of. taxes in ar
rears and reduces monthly pay
ments to the borrower to the
amount he would pay if a new
mortgage had been drawn up to
cover the unpaid balance of the
mortgage plus the amount of tax
es and other advances.
