AUGUSTA — Maine Attorney General Janet Mills is convening a group to talk about improving the home foreclosure process. The panel, representing homeowners, mediators, counselors, realtors and financial institutions, will gather at 3 p.m. Thursday at Portland City Hall.

The Legislature’s Judiciary Committee was presented with several different proposals during the last legislative session to address the foreclosure process in Maine in various ways. Mills was asked to review the process and to report back to the Legislature in the new year.

Mills says the idea of Thursday’s meeting is to work toward ensuring foreclosures are handled in a fair and consistent manner.

A second session will be held in Augusta later this fall.
