The deadline to apply for the Independent Foreclosure Review Program has been extended to Dec. 31.

According to Attorney General Beau Biden, Delawareans whose mortgage loans were active in the foreclosure process in 2009 and 2010 now have extra time to take advantage of an opportunity to have their cases independently reviewed.

Biden's office will hold two educational events from 11:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Georgia House Restaurant, 119 Main St., Millsboro, and from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the NCALL Research office, 336 Saulsbury Road, Dover, on Aug. 30. These two events will provide information to homeowners about the foreclosure process and other housing-related issues. More than 12,000 foreclosures occurred in Delaware during 2009 and 2010.
