BIG NEWS for those with Citigroup mortgages!

Citigroup to Ease Foreclosure Process

Citigroup announced Thursday that it will let delinquent home owners who don’t qualify for any federal relief program stay in their homes for six months as long as they turn over the keys and leave the property in good condition when the grace period expires.

The bank estimates that more than 20,000 borrowers in hard-hit states like Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Texas, and New Jersey could be eligible.

Citigroup is hoping its plan will prevent borrowers from damaging their homes before they depart, which will save the bank significant repair dollars. The program also allows the company to bypass the slow-moving foreclosure process and gives the bank more control over when it puts properties on the market.
