Servicemember Foreclosure Protections Extension Act of 2015

January 26, 2015

Today HPC submitted a statement for the record to the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs in support of H.R. 189 titled the “Servicemember Foreclosure Protections Extension Act of 2015.” The Committee requested that HPC submit a written statement for the record. H.R. 189 would extend the one-year protection from foreclosure in the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act for an additional year through 2016. HPC also urged the Committee to examine whether a permanent extension of the one-year protection is the right policy, and for the Committee to consider the ongoing challenges that the industry continues to experience with interfacing with DOD’s DMDC-SCRA database system in order to comply with SCRA law.
