Westchester County Sees Highest Number of 3rd Quarter Filings Since 2009

“The number of foreclosure filings in the third quarter of 2013 has increased by fifty-three percent (53%) from the third quarter of 2012,” reported Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni, who serves as Clerk of the Westchester County Supreme Court where foreclosure actions are heard. “We continue to see dramatic growth in the number of actions being started, with 2,046 actions being started in the first three quarters of this year,” said Idoni. The 2013 third quarter total exceeds full year totals of 1,812 in 2012 and 1,655 in 2011.

Foreclosure judgments continued their climb as well to 233 after nine months exceeding full year totals of 208 in 2012 and 177 in 2011. County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni warned anyone who faces foreclosure to get legal assistance immediately. “There are ways to avoid or resolve foreclosure if you start early enough,” said Idoni. “But please be sure to use safe, affordable avenues to save your home.”
