Kicked To The Curb For Christmas

 

Senator Jeff Klein Rallies with Renters Being Evicted Days Before Christmas Due to Home Foreclosure  

Foreclosure Crisis Causing 500 + X-Mas Evictions

 

NEW YORK-Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester), rallied together with housing advocates, several recently evicted renters, and his colleagues to release a snapshot of evictions in the month of December, broken down by borough and bank.  

By using the electronic courts system, Klein together with CHANGER, a housing advocacy organization, found that for the month of December, there will be 552 evictions in New York City, with an average of 30 families flooding the housing courts per day.  

Queens leads the City with 351 evictions, followed by Brooklyn (100), the Bronx (50), Staten Island (49), and Manhattan (2). Evictions correspond to the crisis in the credit market, which has plagued the state, placing Queens and Brooklyn 3rd and 5th the nation for foreclosures filings.  

“Tenants who pay their rent on time, deserve better than to find themselves on the other end of a notice to evict in 10 days without any prior knowledge that their homes have been foreclosed on, through no fault of their own. In these dire economic times, working people don’t need the added financial and emotional stress of running to court to save their families from homelessness. We need to create a fair and reasonable process for those affected by the ever unfolding turmoil in the housing market,” said Senator Klein.
