State Senator Shirley Huntley (D-Jamaica) said predatory loans are causing too many residents of her district to lose their homes and action must be taken to curb the practice during a forum last week to address the issue at York College."I can tell you that in the next year more than half the houses in southeast Queens will be foreclosed if something doesn't happen," Huntley said.

Senate Moves To Empower Homeowners Facing ForeclosureLaw penalizes lenders who fail to engage in good-faithforeclosure settlement negotiations
Senator Shirley L. Huntley (D-Jamaica) along with the State Senate has passed legislation (S.7798A) empowering homeowners facing foreclosure to take action when lenders fail to meet their obligation of entering into good-faith settlement negotiations at “settlement conferences.”
Southeast Queens is at the epicenter of the national mortgage crisis. Homeowners in the district, I represent continue to need access to information and quality services, at a time when the media and federal government’s attention are beginning to move away from the plight of homeowners. Our community is built around the institutions of church and family. We must draw on these strengths to build the supportive environment that homeowners at-risk of foreclosure will need now and in the future. The obstacles that many of them face prevents stable and long-term homeownership from occurring within our communities.
