Free Mortgage Foreclosure Clinics

hmpg-pic-nassau-barNassau residents who are struggling with the prospect of losing their homes in mortgage foreclosure or still have issues resulting from Superstorm Sandy are invited to come for help from volunteer attorneys at the Nassau County Bar Association’s (NCBA) Free Mortgage Foreclosure/Sandy Recovery Legal Consultation Clinics. The next two clinics are scheduled for Monday, June 13, and Monday, June 27, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Nassau County Bar Association, located on 15th Street at the corner of West Street in Mineola, two blocks south of the bus and train stations.

NCBA’s clinics allow homeowners concerned about foreclosure matters or who are already in the foreclosure process involving property in Nassau County to meet one-on-one with a volunteer attorney for a free consultation. Homeowners then may be directed for additional help with mortgage modifications, loan restructuring, bankruptcy, financial planning assistance, services for lower-income households and emotional support. Many of these resources and agencies are available immediately in the same room. Participants include NCBA volunteer bankruptcy attorneys and HUD-certified housing counselors from Community Development Corporation of Long Island, Hispanic Brotherhood of Rockville Centre and American Debt Resources.

There are no income restrictions to attend the clinics. Since 2009, NCBA has held more than 130 clinics assisting more than 10,000 Nassau families in distress. Currently, each clinic is averaging 50 homeowners.

Volunteer attorneys also answer Sandy victims’ questions regarding homeowner, flood, property damage and automobile insurance claims; FEMA; debt deferral; and consumer protection issues.

Bilingual attorneys fluent in Spanish are on site, and attorneys bilingual in other languages, including Russian, Haitian Creole, Korean, Chinese, Hindi and American Sign Language, may be requested.

Nassau-bar-Logo-hmpg-3To make an appointment for the next clinic, call 516-747-4070. Attendees are asked to bring their mortgage documents or other important papers and correspondence with them.
