MAAPL Releases PSA About 12/30/16 Deadline to File

UPDATE: Feb. 23, 2017 is expected NEW deadline to file at the Registry of Deeds.

If your home was foreclosed on before 2014, and you want to get your home back—or receive FULL restitution—you need to file an Affidavit at your local Registry of Deeds by DECEMBER 30th, 2016. A law that went into effect last year, S.2015, cuts your 20 year constitutional rights to fight to get your home back down to only 3 years!

Watch our new Public Service Announcement below and share it with your friends and networks to help us spread the word about this deadline. If you know anyone who was foreclosed on before 2014, please make sure they know about this so they don’t lose the chance to regain their home or receive restitution for the loss of their home.


The Mass. Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) is a coalition of over 60 housing counseling agencies, legal services groups, social service agencies, and community-based social action groups that have joined together to address the foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts. MAAPL collects and distributes timely information on the foreclosure crisis and its effects to the public and to its member groups, drafts and supports legislation that provides important protections to homeowners and tenants facing foreclosure and eviction, documents the impact of the foreclosure crisis on local communities, networks with related organizations throughout the Commonwealth, and provides tools and information to help people navigate the legal system and advocate on their own behalf more effectively when challenging a foreclosure or eviction in court
