Are You A Renter & Been Evicted From Your Home?
If so, make sure to check out http://www.rentalforeclosure.com/. There are a lot of good articles on here and information about each state’s foreclosure process. However, it doesn’t seem very up to date. The last article posting was on July 15th, 2009.
The new law requires that tenants who pay their rent on time can remain in their home until the end of their lease, unless the bank sells the property to someone who intends to make it his own residence. Even without a lease, renters must be allowed to stay in their home for 90 days after the foreclosure. The provision is scheduled to expire at the end of 2012
Regardless, make sure to do your homework upfront to see if the landlord is in foreclosure. You can do that on your county property appraiser sites by looking up the address and seeing who the owner is. In South Florida go to http://www.bcpa.net/RecMenu.asp, Miami-Dade go to http://www.miamidade.gov/pa/property_search.asp, and for Palm Beach go to http://www.co.palm-beach.fl.us/papa/aspx/generalsearch/generalsearch.aspx.
