Foreclosures

Foreclosure Mediation

Since July 1, 2010, Vermont law provides Vermont homeowners in foreclosure with the right to meet with a representative of their lender or mortgage servicer to discuss options for staying in their home. This meeting is called a Foreclosure Mediation and is facilitated by a neutral third party called a mediator.

Any foreclosure proceeding instituted after December 1, 2013, must comply with the provisions of Act 8 amending 12 V.S.A. §§ 4631-37, including filing a copy of the Foreclosure Mediation Report and other information and documents with the Attorney General’s Office. Should you have any difficulties, please e-mail AGO.MediationReport@vermont.gov.

Instructions for the Foreclosure Mediation Report:

  • Download the Mediation Report: Part I and Part II
  • Complete all relevant information.
  • Mediators must file only Part I of their report with the Court, while Parts I and II should be sent by email to the Attorney General’s Office at AGO.MediationReport@vermont.gov.
