Foreclosure help Friday for Lindenhurst residents
A state program to help prevent mortgage foreclosures is once again sending financial specialists to the Village of Lindenhurst to provide help to struggling homeowners.
Mortgage foreclosure prevention specialists from the state’s Department of Financial Services will be available tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Lindenhurst Memorial Library.
The foreclosure prevention specialists will meet with homeowners inside the department’s mobile command center, a 36-foot-long vehicle that will be near the library. The department advises that homeowners bring documents relevant to their situations, such as mortgage payment records or letters from lenders or mortgage servicers.
The specialists will be available to provide information to homeowners about specific loan modification programs that may be available to them, as well as to offer guidance on how they can file complaints with the Department of Financial Services so that cases of lender or mortgage servicer abuses can be investigated.
The visit is part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s initiative to assist financially troubled homeowners across the state, particularly in areas where there are high concentrations of at-risk homeowners. The initiative was launched in February and has visited more than a dozen sites across the state. Department specialists last came to Lindenhurst in March.
