Delaware homeowners and lenders will be required to go into mediation when foreclosure complaints are filed under a bill signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Jack Markell. It was one of a package of bills aimed at helping homeowners through the growing foreclosure crisis. Under the new mediation law, foreclosure will be halted until a meeting takes place, though it include an opt-out provision. Lenders will pay a fee to finance the process, and the law will expire in two years.
