Mortgage Foreclosure Assistance

Welcome to the Nassau County Bar Association’s Mortgage Foreclosure Project website.

The NCBA Mortgage Foreclosure Project is a part of the Homeowner’s Protection Program (HOPP), which consists of 88 non-profit housing, counseling, and legal service organizations that offer free services to New York homeowners to help avoid homelessness, crushing debt, and displacement.

If you have any questions regarding Mortgage Foreclosure, whether a homeowner or a tenant, or if you have been served with court papers, or want to understand the options available to you, please attend one of our clinics offered twice a month. In addition, if you have to appear in Supreme Court for a Mandatory Conference, we can help you.


Nassau County residents who are struggling with mortgage foreclosure issues are invited to attend FREE, socially distant Mortgage Foreclosure Clinics at the Nassau County Bar Association (NCBA) in Mineola where they can meet with a volunteer attorney.

Residents may also request an attorney who speaks a different language if they wish.

“People like me need better clarification so banks don’t take advantage like this”

“Excellent – Thank you so much”

It has recently been reported that nearly 3,000 New Yorkers have reported foreclosure rescue scams since 2010. For each reported scam, there are several others that go unreported. The Attorney General of the State of New York has taken a special interest in this ongoing issue and has a website with more information about scams which contains a web based complaint form.
