Housing: Consumer Protection Forum
Pop-ups. Flips. Illegal Construction Activity. These are things you may be seeing in Trinidad with so many changes in the real estate markets in the past few years.
Attorney General Karl A. Racine is holding a Consumer Protection Forum on Construction Violations, Foreclosure Scams, and Mortgage Regulations, which will take place on Monday, September 28, 2015, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Benning (Dorothy I. Height) Neighborhood Library located at 3935 Benning Rd. NE, Washington, D.C. 20019. The purpose of the Housing Forum is to educate the community on the most common types of housing scams in the District, particularly illegal construction and house flipping. Many neighborhoods are seeing a significant number of houses that are being bought, rehabilitated, and sold for large sums of money. Many residents may also be confused about foreclosure and mortgage regulations. So, Attorney General Racine wants to allow you to hear from and ask questions directly to the relevant local and federal agency experts.
This will be a great opportunity to learn more and how to protect your property or yourself from scams.
