Highest-priced liens slated for foreclosure auction

January 05, 2010 04:39PM

The cooperative apartment of convicted fraudster Alberto Vilar in a building just north of the United Nations had the highest lien of any New York City apartment scheduled for auction in 2009, according to PropertyShark.com. The top five apartments in New York City scheduled for auction in 2009 by PropertyShark.com (see chart below) were ranked by the amount of the lien placed on the unit. Vilar was the owner of a sprawling apartment at 866 United Nations Plaza, which includes a series of units. A lien can be a first or second mortgage or any other lien that passed the judgment stage. The other apartments were in Greenwich Village, Midtown, Carnegie Hill and the Upper West Side. PropertyShark.com’s complete list of properties up for auction last year is not yet available. TRD
