Advisory Committee

The Supreme Court of Nevada created an Advisory Committee to advise Nevada’s Foreclosure Mediation Program and help it remain on the leading edge of similar programs that address the foreclosure crisis and help homeowners and lenders resolve their mutual dilemma. On May 19, 2016, (ADKT 435 Order) the Supreme Court suspended FMP Rule 24, which established the committee, effective immediately.

During its inception, the committee was directed to study the State of Nevada Foreclosure Mediation Program rules and make recommendations to the Supreme Court of Nevada. It evaluated the effectiveness, operation, policies and practices of the Foreclosure Mediation Program. In addition, the committee was asked to identify state and federal programs related to the foreclosure of residences in Nevada, the modification of residential home loans, or the resolution of mortgage foreclosures as well as making similar recommendations to the Foreclosure Mediation Program and its mediators.
