Bronx Homeowner Help

Bronx Homeowners have at least two opportunities to get some help if they are struggling with mortgage payments, need to straighten out water billing issues, or are looking for help with improvements and weatherization.

Tomorrow (Thursday) evening at Fordham University, a panel of experts will be on hand to offer legal advice to homeowners with their mortgages as part of Bronx Week. One-on-one counseling will also be available to help homeowners. It's a great resource for homeowners who are in foreclosure or are in danger of falling behind on payments and need help dealing with their lender regarding loan modifications or reductions in principal. The fair is on the 2nd floor of the McGinley Center and runs from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. For more information, call 718-590-8088.

Next week Tuesday, May 18, will be another homeowner fair, featuring DEP staff who will be on hand to help straighten out water billing issues with Bronx homeowners. This event will take place at Concourse House, 2751 Grand Concourse from 5:30 to 7:30. Homeowner counselors and weatherization staff will also be on hand, and homeowners will receive a free weatherization kit. For more information, contact UNHP at 718-933-2539.

Speaking of water bills, City Limits has an article out on what happens to delinquent homeowners who end up in the lien sale process. While the City Council is looking to exempt more seniors from the lien sale process (the 2010 lien sale just went through this week), DEP Commissioner Holloway wants to change the enforcement mechanism for delinquent single family homeowners from shutoff of service (which costs about $3,000) to adding them to the lien sale list.
