HEMPSTEAD -

Multiple officials in Nassau are reassuring homeowners that they are not in imminent danger of losing their homes, despite a mailer from a law firm that is attempting to drum up business.

The letter states “you need to take immediate action to keep your home.” It was sent to homeowners in Hempstead, North Hempstead and Oyster Bay.
