ATTENTION: CM James Sponsors Lien Sale Help Session; 4/16; 4PM; PS 20
Following-up on the information we posted regarding the 2009 lien sale (which is, effectively, everything you'd ever need to know about the 2009 lien sale); we'd like to let you know that our office has contacted the individuals on the 2009 Lien Sale list who live within the 35th District. If you are one of those individuals, and have not yet settled your outstanding liens, we hope that you attended the April 2nd Outreach Session at the Brooklyn Finance Business Center (210 Joralemon Street, 1st Floor). If you did not, we want to make you aware of a special outreach program sponsored by Council Member Letitia James.
On Thursday, April 16, we have arranged for representatives from both the Department of Finance and the Department of Environmental Protection to come to the 35th District so you can make arrangements to begin a payment plan. Representatives from the Department of Housing Preservation and Development will also have information on low-cost loans. The information is as follows:
LIEN SALE HELP SESSION
Thursday, April 16
225 Adelphi Street
(between Willoughby & DeKalb)
Please be aware that there is a similar event on Tuesday, April 21, sponsored by Council Member Albert Vann, in Bedford Stuyvesant at the Boys & Girls School, 1700 Fulton Street (Utica/Schenectady), 5:00-8:00pm.
*Note that if you are a senior, or disabled, you may be eligible for a property tax reduction that could prevent the sale of a lien on your property. Properties owned by active duty military personnel may also be removed from the lien sale.
If you do not contact the City of New York by May 1, 2009, the City will sell a lien on your property. Please see our original post for more information.
