Foreclosure Mediation is a process in the State of Nevad where the grantor or person who holds title of record may file a Petition for Foreclosure Mediation. They would file with the District Court if they desire to participate. You may also have an attorney file on your behalf.
The State of Nevada’s Foreclosure Mediation provides eligible homeowners with the option to meet with a representative of the beneficiary and a state approved third party mediator to discuss alternatives to foreclosure.
You are eligible to participate in this program if all items below apply:
⦁ A Notice of Default has been filed on your residential property in the past 30 days.
⦁ If this property is your primary owner-occupied residential property and not a vacation, 2nd home, rental or other property where the homeowner does not live.
⦁ If you do NOT have an open bankruptcy proceeding under Chapter 7, 11, 12, or 13 of Title 11 of the United States Code.
