What Happens to Your Lease During Foreclosure

Your lease or rental agreement was made with the property owner or management company not the lender. The foreclosing mortgage holder may ask you to pay rent elsewhere, but ff you pay the mortgage holder, the property owner might evict you for failure to pay rent to the proper party. Paying rent to the wrong party is not generally a good defense to eviction. You may feel that your are caught between a rock and hard place - but good legal advice can minimize your stress and possibly turn the situation into an opportunity.

Protecting the Rights of Renters Living in a Foreclosed Property

The eviction process for dwellers of foreclosed residential properties (homes or apartments) differs significantly from typical evictions and the process that city codes require. As tenant you may even have rights under federal law to remain in the house or apartment. If you are unlawfully evicted you can recover monetary damages that can help you regain a proper living situation.

If you receive an eviction notice and you are aware, you should contact an attorney immediately. You have a limited time in which to respond, so contact us today. We are here to protect your rights.

Our Representation in Post-Foreclosure Evictions

If you are a tenant, we will carefully review the terms of your lease and consider the city, county and federal laws that may apply. Your lease could remain valid in spite of a foreclosure and/or subsequent sale. If it is not, we can confirm how much notice you are entitled and if relocation fees are due to you before you have to vacate the premises. We will also ensure that the new owner meets all requirements under the law regarding the time and form of  the eviction notice. It may even be possible to work with the new owner regarding the costs of your relocation and increase the time you have before you must move.
