New York and the Ever-Changing Foreclosure Landscape

In the first of NYMBA’s Loan Servicing “HOT TOPICS” Webinars, practicing subject matter experts will kick-off this session talking about NY Foreclosures and the Court system, Lack of Standing and the Statute of Limitations, as well as other nuances that have developed in recent months.
