2015 Filings on Par with 2014 for the first three quarters

WHITE PLAINS, NY: “For the second year in a row, the number of foreclosure judgments is surging toward a record high in Westchester County,” reported Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni who serves as Clerk of the Westchester County Supreme Court where foreclosure actions are heard. “These numbers are indicative of an alarming trend in New York State, especially in suburban areas, that the foreclosure crisis is far from over,” continued Idoni. The Office of the Westchester County Clerk reported one thousand six hundred and ninety seven (1,697) foreclosure actions filed between January 1st and September 30th. The filings are on par with 2014 over the same time period.   However, there were eight hundred and seventy one (871) judgments in the first three quarters of this year, well ahead of the seven hundred and seventy two (772) foreclosure judgments for all of 2014.    A month-by-month breakdown of foreclosure filings follows:

“Making Government Easy” with Enhanced eCommerce Options

WHITE PLAINS, NY: “In 2014, the Office of the Westchester County Clerk worked collaboratively with our partners in government to provide better services at a lower cost,” shared Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni in the cover letter to his recently released 2014 Annual Report. “By harnessing new technology, our staffers gained an improved ability to serve customers more quickly and efficiently,” continued Idoni.

The 2014 Annual Report highlights the progress of the Office of the Westchester County Clerk during the last calendar year. Operating expenses continue to drop, staffing remains lean, and drastic cuts to overtime and hourly staffing have been maintained.

The report also acknowledges the key role of technology in improving customers’ experiences with the Office of the Westchester County Clerk. “Voluntary participation in electronic recording of land records such as deeds and mortgages has hit record highs, while electronic filing in our courts has become more established,” shared Idoni. “Our digital records collection continues to expand while access to online records has been improved for our partners in the courthouse.”

Protecting county residents remains a priority to the Idoni administration. “In 2014, our office worked with the Office of Court Administration to quickly and effectively implement rules designed to protect individuals who have been sued for non-payment of credit card debt,” offered Idoni.   “In addition, we continued to provide foreclosure data to our partners who assist Westchester residents in foreclosure,” continued Idoni who recently completed his ninth year as Westchester County Clerk.

The Office of the Westchester County Clerk is located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in White Plains and is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. For more information, or for a copy of the 2014 Annual Report, please visit our website WestchesterClerk.com or call (914)995-3082.
