Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014 Richard Kruse of Sperry Van Ness Gryphon Parker and Gryphon Auction Group provided proponent testimony on House Bill 586 to the Ohio House Judiciary Committee.
Passing of HB 586 will streamline and add definition to Ohio Revised Code Section 2329, a section of Ohio law outlining the processes for undertaking foreclosure auctions in the state. Some additions to the law would require additional licensing for auctioneers, more accurately define the closing process and allow an option of selling online.
The Bill is supported by many in the legal and banking industry as well as leaders in the Ohio and National Auctioneers Association.
