State foreclosure bus returns to Lindenhurst

Lindenhurst will be the next stop for a state-run mobile command center staffed with foreclosure counselors.

The command center is rolling into Lindenhurst on June 1 with its 36-foot-long van equipped with computers and communications systems normally used to respond to natural disasters. It also made a stop in Lindenhurst last week.

The program is run by the Department of Financial Services and features the foreclosure prevention unit dispatched to areas with high rates of foreclosure.

Counselors will assess where homeowners are in the pre-foreclosure or foreclosure process and provide information about loan modifications available under federal law.

They will also take complaints from homeowners who believe they were subjected to lender or mortgage servicer abuses so these cases can be investigated by the department.

“Gov. Cuomo believes that it’s essential that we provide as much help as possible to financially-troubled homeowners,” Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky said in a statement. “Our objective is to provide direct help to homeowners and get the word out to others that it’s important to ask for help as quickly as possible. The longer a homeowner waits, the harder it may be to save a home.”

The command center will be set up from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Lindenhurst Memorial Library, 1 Lee Ave. in Lindenhurst.
