I can advise you that many lenders and servicers are taking positive actions to maintain their assets when non-paying owners or occupants aren't. Especially in Judicial States (like Fla) where these folk are either taking advantage of the situation and not doing anything but taking from the public trough or playing "possum". So I advise you to 1st, ask whom is the Realtor assigned to this asset and reach out to them if they haven't already tried to reach you in vain, then 2nd to ask who is the lender or servicer on this asset and reach out to them. You have obligations as well as rights and you need to exercise both. If you want to discuss this further or have any other questions please reach out to me during normal business hours or send me your name, email address and phone number, I'll be happy to discuss matters with you.

Get in touch with a real estate agent, tell him the address and he will check it for you.

There have been a lot of rental scams using vacant bank-owned homes. For more details, you can visit my blog, where I have written posts about this.

In the meantime, please contact your landlord. If you cannot reach them, you may be dealing with one of these situations.

My posts provide more details about this scam and how to protect yourself from them.

Best of luck

Usually, it takes several months before a bank actually forecloses on a property and takes possession. You will receive notice of this, but at that time, even if you are renting, you will probably have to move.

You may want to speak with the landlord and ask what the situation is. If the foreclosure action has been going on for a while, you may want to consider finding another place to live.

Before you move to another house, ask your Miami real estate agent to make certain the place you want to rent is not in the process of short sale or foreclosure.
