N.Y. Private Housing Finance Law Section 94
Foreclosure


1.

In any foreclosure action the commissioner, and the municipality if it has made a loan to the housing company, in addition to other necessary parties, shall be made parties defendant; and the commissioner and the municipality shall take all steps in such action necessary to protect the interest of the public therein, and no costs shall be awarded against him or the municipality. Foreclosure shall not be decreed unless the court to which application therefor is made shall be satisfied that the interests of the lienholder or holders can not be adequately secured or safeguarded except by the sale of the property. In any such proceeding, the court shall be authorized to make an order increasing the rentals to be charged for the housing accommodations in the project involved in such foreclosure, but not exceeding the maximum average rentals fixed herein, or appoint the commissioner as a receiver of the property and in the event the municipality has made a loan to the housing company, appoint an officer or employee of the municipality, or grant such other and further relief as may be reasonable and proper. In the event of a foreclosure sale or other judicial sale, the property shall, except as provided in the next succeeding paragraph of this section, be sold only to a housing company, unless the court shall find that the interest on the bonds cannot be earned under the restrictions imposed by the provisions of this article and that the proceeding was brought in good faith. In such event the property shall be sold free of all restrictions imposed by this article and all the benefits theretofore granted under this article to such project shall thereupon terminate.
