Ne­vada’s sen­a­tors urge mort­gage re­lief for vic­tims

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - #VEGASSTRONG: HOPE AND HEALING -

Ne­vada’s two U.S. sen­a­tors want mort­gage pay­ment re­lief for fam­ily mem­bers of vic­tims of the Las Ve­gas mas­sacre as they deal with med­i­cal and funeral costs.

Re­pub­li­can Sen. Dean Heller and Demo­cratic Sen. Cather­ine Cortez Masto sent a let­ter Thurs­day to lenders and reg­u­la­tors ask­ing them to ease the bur­dens on those af­fected by the Oct. 1 shoot­ing at the Route 91 Har­vest Fes­ti­val.

The sen­a­tors asked lenders not to ini­ti­ate or fi­nal­ize fore­clo­sures and to work with the home­own­ers to come up with plans like loan mod­i­fi­ca­tions if they miss pay­ments. Heller and Cortez Masto say the fam­i­lies should not have to worry about fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tions that ex­ac­er­bate the “tremen­dous stress caused by this sense­less tragedy.”
