Foreclosure Prevention

Mobilization for Justice’s Foreclosure Prevention Project helps homeowners in Queens, Brooklyn & Staten Island keep their homes.

Since 2008, Mobilization for Justice has focused on preventing foreclosures in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island, three of the hardest-hit counties in the state. We successfully negotiate mortgage modifications in state court foreclosure settlement conferences, challenge the standing of plaintiffs to file foreclosure actions, hold accountable unscrupulous companies who bilk clients by claiming they will get their mortgage payments reduced, and enforce state and federal laws that protect homeowners.

In addition to direct assistance, Mobilization for Justice works with other organizations to effect legislative changes to better protect homeowners. The project also assists neighborhood-based housing organizations to educate tenants of buildings facing foreclosure on their rights.  We also issue white papers bringing to light practices that harm homeowners and we engage in impact litigation to effect reform.
