Gov. Phil Murphy has conditionally vetoed a foreclosure bill that would have made it easier for families and nonprofits to buy homes at sheriff’s sales.

Dubbed the “Community Wealth Preservation Program,” the bill would have allowed:

  • “homeowners in foreclosure or their relatives to buy back their home at a foreclosure sale, reducing the required down payment and giving them more time to come up with the cash.”
  • “nonprofits to buy foreclosed properties to create affordable housing and created incentives for people to buy abandoned homes and live there, instead of investors intent on flipping them for profit.”
