The following excerpts are from a Banker & Tradesman article, headlined Bay State Foreclosure Petitions Drop In January:
The number of foreclosures started by lenders in Massachusetts during the month of January dropped to the lowest level in more than a year, according to a new report by The Warren Group, publisher of Banker & Tradesman.
Lenders filed 1,874 petitions to foreclose – which mark the first step in the foreclosure process in Massachusetts – in January, a 9 percent decrease from 2,060 in December and 4.4 percent drop from a year earlier. Foreclosure petitions exceeded 2,000 for most months in 2009, falling below that number only in January and November.
