Evictions on Hold for the Holidays

Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae announced a holiday moratorium on all foreclosed single-family homes that the mortgage giants own or guarantee, suspending all evictions between Dec 18 and Jan 3. Processing of the evictions will continue during this period, but families living in foreclosed homes will be able to stay in their homes.

“At this time of year we want to bring some relief to families who confronted financial difficulties and went through foreclosures,” says Chris Bowden, senior vice president of REO at Freddie Mac. “We also want to remind home owners going into the New Year facing financial challenges to reach out for help as soon as they can by calling their mortgage servicer.”

Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are also issuing a holiday moratorium on foreclosed 2-4 unit properties.

While the mortgage giants will be putting evictions on a two-week holiday hold, they will continue to proceed on other pre- or post-foreclosure activities.

Places Where Veterans Eat Free Today

Image

Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, a federal holiday that celebrates those who have served in the U.S. armed forces. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors men and women who died serving, Veterans Day honors the service of all members of the military, current and former.

This year several business and retailers will honor those men and women who have served or are still serving with free gifts or discounts.

However, many of the restaurants listed require proof of military service in order to receive a free meal or other discount. Also, be sure to call your local store, since some choose not to participate in the promotion.

Free traveling show features lights, music and Santa!

Local firefighters typically collect more than 100,000 toys during the season when the Holiday Toy Express is in town. The toys are distributed to families in local communities that may not be able to afford gifts this holiday season. 

The Buena Park Noon Lions Club is again the kind sponsor of this year’s event.
