Foreclosure Prevention

Preserving affordable homeownership.

People with low incomes work for years to secure a home of their own. Loss of a home through foreclosure can be devastating and leave individuals and families with no option for affordable housing. Those facing foreclosure are targeted for scams that promise relief to desperate homeowners, often charging them thousands of dollars and providing no results. NYLAG attorneys work with homeowners to keep them in their homes through litigation, fraud prevention, and community outreach.
