On June 4, 2013, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber signed into law Senate Bill 558, which expands the Foreclosure Mediation Program created in 2012 to include judicial foreclosures. The original program applied only to nonjudicial foreclosures, and was created in response to the perception that borrowers were not being given an adequate opportunity to work out their delinquencies before losing their properties to nonjudicial foreclosure. Now, lenders will be required to participate in the program, regardless of the foreclosure method that they choose.
