Nassau residents can get help with foreclosure, Sandy troubles
Nassau County residents at risk of foreclosure and those whose homes were damaged by superstorm Sandy can get free legal help at a clinic on Monday.
The Nassau County Bar Association will offer the clinic from 3 to 6 p.m. at its headquarters at 15th and West streets in Mineola. Required reservations can be made by calling 516-747-4070.
Volunteer attorneys and federally certified housing counselors will offer guidance about foreclosure, loan modification and bankruptcy. In addition, volunteers will give advice about issues arising from storm damage, such as insurance claims, debt deferral, consumer protection issues, landlord-tenant issues and applying for help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
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. The program is funded by the state attorney general’s Homeowner Protection Program.
