NYS Senator Eric Adams and the Senate Majority Conference protect residents of foreclosed buildings by reversing prior law that permitted tenants to be forced from homes without due notice.
NYS Senator Eric Adams states: “The Senate Majority Conference bill S7139, affording greater protections to tenants of buildings in foreclosure, has been signed into law. Rent-regulated tenants must now receive notification of any foreclosure.
“Further, these tenants must now receive a notice of their housing rights. Prior notification requirements were inadequate, failing to make clear to rent controlled and rent stabilized tenants that their housing rights are unaffected by a foreclosure proceeding.
On Saturday, April 16, 2011, NYS Senator Eric Adams united with community organizations and constituents to urge Chase bank to provide affordable mortgage modification for all New Yorkers.
Chase, the country’s third largest mortgage servicer, has done a woefully inadequate job in mitigating high-cost, defaulting home loans. According to the Center for New York City Neighborhoods Inc., only 6% of Chase-serviced borrowers have obtained a permanent loan modification; 80% of homeowners requesting a mortgage modification from Chase have never received proper consideration.
