How YOU can Help Protect Surviving Homeowners!

Can you contact your senator and ask them to support Senate Bill 1150?

It will take you five minutes, but could make a world of difference for a surviving homeowner who would be better protected from mortgage servicer bureaucracy and unnecessary foreclosure if SB 1150 is enacted. SB 1150 has already passed out of the Senate Banking and Senate Judiciary Committees. The next step is a vote on the full Senate floor, which we expect will happen next week.

We are especially focused on contacting these seven senators to let them know about the problem, how SB 1150 would fix it, and to ask for their support. So please pick up the phone and give them a phone call.

    1. Your senator: If you’re not sure who your senator is, please use this website.

    3. Senator Mendoza (LA, OC) – (916) 651-4032

Also, if you’re active on social media, please consider tweeting a message of support as well.  We’re including a few sample tweets below that you can copy/paste. If you know that your senator is on Twitter, please add them to your tweet:


#SB1150 is a smart fix to address time-consuming bureaucracy that surviving homeowners currently face:  #CaLeg


#CaLeg has opportunity to protect widow and widower homeowners from unnecessary foreclosures with #SB1150:


After losing a spouse, surviving homeowners shouldn’t ALSO lose their homes unnecessarily. #SB1150 would stop “red tape foreclosures” #CaLeg
