Nassau County homeowners at risk of losing their homes can get free housing and legal advice on Monday, Oct. 1.

The Nassau County Bar Association will hold its monthly foreclosure clinic from 3 to 6 p.m. at its headquarters at 15th and West streets in Mineola. Volunteer attorneys will offer one-on-one guidance about foreclosure, loan modification and bankruptcy. Federally certified housing counselors will also be available.

Residents who meet income guidelines can meet with Nassau-Suffolk Law Services, which provides reduced-fee legal services.

Attorneys who speak Spanish will be on site, and those fluent in other languages can be made available upon request.

Those attending should bring their mortgage documents to the clinic. Reservations are required, and can be made by calling 516-747-4070.
