On May 4, 2009, South Carolina became the first state  in which the Chief Justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court issued an Ex Parte Temporary Restraining Order (TRO)preventing the foreclosure sale of any property arising out of a loan owned or guaranteed by petitioner or Freddie Mac or held by a servicer who has signed an agreement to participate in the Home Affordable Modification Program aka HMP.

New details on the HMP were released on April 28, 2009.

If you think you may be eligible for the HMP, act quickly.

Kudos South Carolina! And good luck to the many homeowners who may have one more chance to keep their homes.
