New York City recently launched an excellent program which allows homeowners or their designees to receive notification if a deed, mortgage, deed related document or mortgage related document is recorded against their real property without their knowledge. This program will allow homeowners to learn of possible mortgage scams or property scams very quickly, while there is still time to do something about them and limit the damage caused by these crimes. Click here to be directed to the New York City Department of Finance Notice of Recorded Document form where your can register. You will insert either your address or Block and Lot. You then type in your address, phone number and email address and request how you wish to be alerted, including by email, regular mail or text message. If you prefer, you can also register for this program by telephone by calling 311.
We live in a society where the health care system is for profit. That does not mean that there are not generous and kind individual doctors and health care providers who work for the good of their patients, but that the system itself has a goal, and that goal is profit, sometimes even over health. That does not just apply for the uninsured. When we pay for health insurance we enter into a contract with the company to pay for the covered medical bills. But if profit is the corporate goal, necessary coverage could be denied despite the patient's need or available coverage. Many of us have experienced this. I myself had coverage for my son denied again and again wrongfully, literally trying to wear me down just to pay the bill.
GOOD THING TO KNOW: New Law: If a patrol car is pulled over to the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down by 20 mph. Every state except Hawaii , Maryland and D.C. has this law. In California , the "Move-over" law became operative on January 1, 2010. Please let everyone you know that drives about this new law. It is true, see details at the following web address: http://www.moveoveramerica.com
