Foreclosure Notices Bill Passes; Three Notices Required

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The House has reluctantly agreed to restore the required frequency of foreclosure notices published in Tennessee newspapers to three times.
The chamber had originally approved Rep. Jimmy Matlock’s measure (HB1920) to reduce the requirement to two public notices, but the Senate refused to go along.
The Lenoir City Republican said Saturday that he regrets the change, but that he agreed in the interest of getting the measure passed this year. The chamber voted 85-2 to approve the changes.
The final version of the bill would still trim technical information required in the notices, thereby cutting about 25 percent of the length.
The bill now heads for the governor’s consideration.
