PHOENIX (3TV / CBS 5) -- During the coronavirus emergency, there are concerns that foreclosures and vehicle repossessions could spike. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is now calling on financial and lending institutions to provide temporary relief to customers.
Late last week, Brnovich sent a letter sent to more than 1,000 financial institutions that do business in Arizona, urging them to halt foreclosures, evictions, and repossessions for at least 90 days. In the letter, Brnovich acknowledges some financial institutions have already launched voluntary relief programs, but said Arizona needs a "consistent application of these amelioration efforts." "We want to make sure we're doing everything we can so people have that security right now, that they know that even though we're in tough times, we're going to pull together and that especially economically, we don't want people to worried they're not going to have a roof over their head or they're going to lose their car," Brnovich told 3 On Your Side. "It's unconscionable."
