Foreclosure Actions Are Rising
Putnam’s rate of foreclosure actions continues to rise at a disturbing pace. First Deputy County Clerk Michael Bartolotti reported last week that 177 foreclosures had been initiated for the four months of 2013—a 127 percent increase from the 78 foreclosures that occurred for the same period last year. In 2012, 331 foreclosure actions occurred countywide.
