Share Article

After a mortgage company repeatedly refused to lift a lis pendens from a property after a mortgage modification was set in place, New York real estate law firm Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. received a dismissal and attorney’s fees for defendant.

Long Island residential real estate attorneys Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. recently represented defendants in their effort to remove a lis pendens from their property [Supreme Court, State of New York, Index No. 29663/2009].

After defaulting on mortgage payments on their property, the defendants met with the plaintiff to arrange a Home Affordable Trial Modification in February 2010. After successfully completing all trial payments, the defendant accepted a permanent loan modification agreement in October 2011, according to court documents.

However, according to court documents, the defendant claimed the plaintiff did not honor this agreement, resulting in five subsequent settlement conferences to attempt to rectify the situation. With the lis pendens still in place, the defendant filed an application for dismissal, as well as award of attorney fees based on the plaintiff’s frivolous conduct.

With the representation of Rubin & Licatesi, the defendant received dismissal of the lis pendens and an award of attorney fees in the sum of $2,750 to represent monies incurred from appearing at the five settlement conferences.
