HOPP Webinar – Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining: A Primer on Surplus Proceedings for Foreclosure Prevention Advocates

September 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A home lost to foreclosure may not be the end of the process for some homeowners. If the home is worth more than is owed on the mortgage, the owner of a foreclosed home may be entitled to surplus monies arising upon the sale of the mortgaged property. With real estate values appreciating in many communities, this is an important tool that should not be overlooked. This webinar, taught by advocates who have recently concluded a successful surplus proceeding, will walk advocates through the governing statutory provisions, the mechanics of prosecuting a surplus proceeding, and will offer practice tips to those getting ready to handle a surplus proceeding for the first time.

Our Presenters: Ayana Robertson, Deputy Director, Brooklyn Legal Services and Melissa Ysaguirre, Sr. Staff Attorney, Brooklyn Legal Services

Webinar Moderator: Jacob Inwald, Legal Services NYC

This webinar is sponsored in partnership with Legal Services NYC
