6.) Sample Letters. We have listed 5 sample letters that you may use as a template to contact these homeowners.This site was designed with the Real Estate Agent, Mortgage Loan Officer, Investor, and Attorney in mind. The site contains records of homeowners who are three to four months behind on their mortgage when a Lis Pendens is filed. This means that their Lender has started the foreclosure process. Due to the backlog of the courts, it takes a year, in most cases, between the Lis Penden being filed and the Sheriff's Auction. These homeowners have Four options. They can Refinance, Sell their Home, possibly declare Bankruptcy or stay and be evicted after Sheriffs Auction. Records on NYLispendens.com are updated daily.
