The Alaska Legal Services Corporation (ALSC) is a non-profit organization that provides free civil legal assistance to low-income individuals and communities in Alaska. While ALSC does not exclusively focus on mortgage-related legal issues, it does offer assistance and advice on various housing-related matters, including mortgage-related issues.


ALSC may help individuals facing foreclosure, eviction, or other housing problems. They can provide legal advice, advocacy, representation, and assistance in navigating the complex legal system. They may also educate clients on their rights and responsibilities as homeowners and tenants, as well as provide information on available resources and programs.


In mortgage-related legal issues, ALSC may assist clients in understanding the terms of their mortgage agreements, evaluating whether they have been victims of predatory lending practices, negotiating loan modifications or repayment plans with lenders, and advocating for their rights in foreclosure proceedings. ALSC attorneys can also represent clients in court if necessary.


It's important to note that ALSC's services are primarily aimed at low-income individuals who cannot afford legal representation, and they may have eligibility requirements based on income and other factors.
