Foreclosure Prevention Project

The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York has a Foreclosure Prevention Project to help low and moderate income homeowners at risk of foreclosure. Homeowners may be entitled to a settlement conference. If you have been served with a summons and complaint for a foreclosure lawsuit, or are notified about a possible settlement conference before a judge, please call the Legal Aid Society right away.
