Mortgage Foreclosure Conciliation Program—Masters; Administrative Order 2016-00004

[46 Pa.B. 3644]
[Saturday, July 9, 2016]

Memorandum and Order

 The Montgomery County Mortgage Foreclosure Conciliation Program (the ''Program'') was initiated to promote discussion and facilitate resolution between lenders and owners of certain residential properties subject to foreclosure proceedings. Since the inception of the Program, it has been administered and presided over by Judges of the Court. The Court has determined that it is necessary and appropriate to delegate certain aspects of the Program to the authority of court appointed Masters. This will permit the Court to continue to address the large number of cases and to better serve the interests of the parties involved.

 The Masters will be granted the authority to preside over all Program proceedings, as well as to act as facilitators in the exchange of documentation, the modification of terms, or, some other resolution of the litigation. The Masters may authorize the continuance of matters to allow for additional time for appropriate reasons. When appropriate, the Masters may prepare recommendations on the form of proposed Orders for review by the Judge or Judges assigned to preside over the Program.

And Now, this 20th day of June, 2016, following a review of qualifications, it is Ordered that the following individuals are appointed as Masters to act in accordance with the provisions set forth previously and to serve until resignation or further Order of this Court: Alfred M. Abel, Esq., Edward J. DiDonato, Esq., Samantha A. Fagnan, Esq., Mark S. Harris, Esq.

By the Court
