Brooklyn, NY- State Senator Kevin Parker took a proactive stance in championing homeownership and safeguarding family homes by hosting a comprehensive housing event in collaboration with the Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS). The workshop held recently delved into critical aspects of estate planning, homeownership preservation and the alarming rise of real estate scams targeting vulnerable homeowners.

Senator Parker expressed his dedication to the cause, stating, "This housing event with the NHS is a crucial step toward empowering homeowners and ensuring the preservation of family legacies. The lack of critical estate planning documents puts low-income homeowners at risk of exploitation, scams and potential loss of their homes. By addressing these challenges head-on, we aim to create a more secure and resilient environment for homeowners across our community."

The event provided attendees with a valuable overview of essential estate planning documents, emphasizing their crucial role in protecting low-income homeowners from predatory lending, scams, and potential loss of their family homes. Senator Parker underscored the vulnerability of those lacking these documents and the urgency to equip homeowners with the knowledge and tools necessary to secure their assets.

The workshop not only highlighted the challenges but also proposed suggestions for changes to policy and legislation that would bolster homeowner protection and promote intergenerational wealth. By advocating for these changes, Senator Parker seeks to create a legislative framework that addresses the evolving landscape of real estate scams and provides homeowners with the necessary safeguards.
