I would say that you are past the time to leave, but there may be more to this matter. You have choices, keep living in the house or contact the mortgage lender and ask them for a status. You could also contact your bankruptcy attorney for some legal advice.... more
Do you have a lease and if so what does it state--you may also want to consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate and see what options you may have--most professionals do offer a free consultation.... more
Graham, "decent" is very subjective. There are number of websites that some of our Trulia investors can refer you to so you may decide for yourself. Renting out a home is one concern an investor will have with any city. Another concern should be the cities cooperation with landlords and investors and the ease with which they can conduct business within any cities limits. If you do not have a Realtor or a property manager, I would strongly suggest that you contact a few to help you.
I'm not a lawyer, so this isn't legal advice. Check with a lawyer. However . . . .
You have a lease with your landlord, the owner. Your obligation is to make the payments per the terms of your lease. If the property is sold to someone else, that action is between the buyer and the seller. The obligations of the lease will transfer from the seller to the buyer (regarding provision of housing, etc.). Bluntly, it's up to the two of them to coordinate payment arrangements. Technically, once the house is sold, the previous owner no longer has the right to collect rent from you. That right transfers to the new owner.
However, your obligation is to pay rent to the owner. When you are officially notified that ownership has been transferred (not that someone is buying the house . . . when someone has bought the house and ownership has transferred), then you pay the new owner.
Meanwhile, of course, keep complete records of your payments and evidence that payment has been made.
Beyond that, consult with a lawyer.
Hope that helps.... more
I would check the county records for a sheriff's sale. You will be able to find the name of the bank holding the mortgage there too.
Also, check the lease. Most leases do not have any provision to protect the tenant if the landlord defaults on the mortgage.
