  • Foreclosure in the Nations Capital: How Unfair and Reckless Lending Undermines Homeownership

    The study finds that minorities are disproportionately affected by the foreclosure crisis, beyond levels that can be explained by objective criteria.

    It confirms that disparities in lending have a clear racial component that has not been adequately addressed through enforcement of the nations fair lending laws.

  • HAMP Mortgage Modification Survey 2010

    NCRC conducted a survey of distressed homeowners seeking assistance from NCRCs Housing Counseling Network (HCN).

    There have been no major studies focusing on how quickly lenders and servicers move their delinquent borrowers through the foreclosure process and whether the speed of this process differs by race.

    NCRCs survey provides a first glimpse of possible racial disparities in the speed of the foreclosure process.

  • HAMP Mortgage Modification Survey 2010

    FINDINGS: Loan servicers foreclose upon delinquent Black or AfricanAmerican borrowers more quickly than delinquent White or Hispanic borrowers.

    White borrowers found themselves in a foreclosure after being delinquent on their mortgages for 7 months or fewer.

    African- Americans found themselves in the foreclosure process after only 4 months or fewer.
