Maine Foreclosure Law Center

In Maine, foreclosures must proceed through the court-system (called judicial foreclosures). The foreclosing lender or servicer must comply with certain notice requirements and you are given a period of time to respond to the foreclosure lawuit. In addition, many Maine residents are eligible to participate in Maine's foreclosure mediation program, called the Foreclosure Diversion Program. Below you can learn about the general foreclosure timeline in Maine, key features of Maine foreclosure procedures, and the Maine foreclosure mediation program.
