Foreclosure Filings in County declined 14%. Final Foreclosure Judgments Doubled in 2014

WPCNR County Clarion-Ledger. From the Westchester County Clerk. January 8, 2014:

“Foreclosure filings continue their significant drop nationally and foreclosure actions filed in Westchester County have declined almost fourteen percent since 2013,” reported Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni who serves as Clerk of  Westchester County  y Supreme Court where foreclosure actions are heard.

The Office of the Westchester County Clerk reported 2,326 foreclosure actions started between January 1st and December 31st of 2014, as compared with 2,696 in 2013.

Foreclosure judgments  (resolutions of foreclosure filings) were on the rise in 2014 with 770 filed, more than doubling the 371 foreclosure judgments entered in 2013.

Idoni explained the higher number was in large part due to a clearing of back-logged cases caused by a change in court rules implemented to protect homeowners.
