Are you concerned that your landlord is facing foreclosure and you don’t know what to do?
Even if your landlord is at risk of foreclosure or has been foreclosed on, you do not need to move out right away. You should be aware that you have rights under federal and state law. Here is some information to help you figure out what is going on, what you can do, and where to find referrals for legal advice and other assistance.
Renters should determine the foreclosure
status of their landlord by calling the Court Clerk's Office.
If your landlord
is not yet foreclosed on and still owns the property, you must keep
paying your rent. If a foreclosure has been completed on your landlord's
property, the property is now most likely owned by a bank. Depending on your situation, you may stay
until the end of your lease or for at least 90 days from receiving a written
notice from the new owner.
For additional concerns, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for renters.
If you are not sure what to do or are concerned that your
rights are not being protected, you should seek legal advice or representation.
