The foreclosure crisis in New York State is far from over. Foreclosures filings in New York remain high, hovering at more than 40,000* a year since 2013, a number well above pre-recession levels. After reaching a low in 2011 of under 17,000, the number of filings began to creep back up to a level alarmingly close to those seen at the height of the crisis.
At the beginning of 2015, there were over 90,000 foreclosure cases pending in New York State Courts. Overwhelmingly, homeowners in foreclosure cases in New York State appear in court without counsel, while 100% of the plaintiffs are represented.
On December 14, 2015, new help became available to New Yorkers facing foreclosure: LawHelpNY, together with the New York State Courts Access to Justice Program and Pro Bono Net, launched LiveHelp, a real time chat service, on the foreclosure pages of the CourtHelp website.
