In the current economic downturn, millions of Americans find themselves facing financial troubles
Westchester County, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
The New York foreclosure defense attorneys at Rubin & Licatesi, PC are currently representing defendant Patricia Hamilton in a foreclosure case. Ms. Hamilton lost her home in a foreclosure sale and was referred to Rubin & Licatesi for a review of her civil rights and options.
“In the current economic downturn, millions of Americans find themselves facing financial troubles,” said Long Island real estate lawyer Richard Harris Rubin. “We want Ms. Hamilton and our other clients to get the second chance they deserve.”
In the New York State Supreme Court, Westchester County case HSBC Bank v. Patricia Hamilton, et al., Docket No. 19173/09, the defendant, Ms. Hamilton, moves to vacate the judgment of foreclosure and sale filed and entered on November 30, 2011 pursuant to CPLR 5015(a) on the ground she was never served and that she has a meritorious defense. A meritorious defense addresses the merits, substance or essentials of a case rather than technical objections.
The Court ruled that Ms. Hamilton is entitled to a hearing on those issues and if proper service was not made, then the judgment and sale would be set aside and the action dismissed. To that extent, a hearing date was scheduled.
