Free parking will be available for attendees at the One Temple Street Garage and the 213 Crown Street Garage.
Representatives from various mortgage lenders and loan servicing companies will be available to discuss your case personally. Among them are: Bank of America; CitiMortgage; Fannie Mae;
First Niagara Bank; HSBC National Bank USA; JPMorgan Chase & Co.; McCue Mortgage; Ocwen Loan Servicing; PNC Mortgage; People’s United Bank; Webster Bank and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. HUD-approved housing counseling agencies, the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority, Judicial Branch Mediation and other state and non-profit agencies will provide additional assistance to homeowners.
