Long Island Foreclosure Help

Written by Craig D. Robins, Esq.

Foreclosure cases are increasing again on Long Island according to a report that was published in yesterday’s Newsday.
New Numbers Show Foreclosures Rising Again on Long Island
 In January, there was a 23 percent increase over last year in foreclosure proceedings that were commenced on Long island.  This included 504 homes in Nassau County and 626 homes in Suffolk County — a total of 1,130 homes for the month.
A foreclosure proceeding is started when the lender files a notice of a pending foreclosure law suit with the County Clerk.  The notice is called a “lis pendens,” a Latin legal term which translates to “notice of pendency.”
Homeowners have several options for dealing with foreclosure situations.  Here are some recent articles that I’ve written about the possibilities:
