As a Realtor that primarily works as a Listing Agent for Banks, I may not be a Lawyer, but I know Real Estate and my Clients that happen to be Banks would not be very happy if I did not. It is crucial for me to know the Laws that affect what my clients lists and sells. The Foreclosure Arena is drastically Changing, specially since the passage of S.896 / also know as The Protecting Tenants At Foreclosure. It is extremely important that as a Realtor listing Foreclosures that I quickly and accurately document all the information specially when there is a Tenant Involved. If the tenants Have A Signed Lease Agreement signed & available, Put Up A Security Deposit, have documented with a Current Active Agreement to Show, Proof and Give a Copy to the Realtor who is assigned to Check The Occupancy that would be the Best Case. But even if you don't you still have rights. Mish you can research the Law terminalogy and Rules. Some can define their rights by reading them but if you have ANY Questions or Doubt about what Your Rights Are, or if you are Not Sure, Consultant a Foreclosure Attorneys Office, I think you will be very surprised how many Rights You Have. But, I DO NOT Recommend Not Paying Your Rent. Two Wrongs don't Make a Right. Plus,depending on Your State Laws, If your Landlord did not tell you when you signed the lease that Foreclosure was a possibility, You might just be another one in your Favor.
