If your house is listed for sale, I would check the broker sites to see how the information shows up. If it is showing as vinyl, then you need to have your agent change the listing.

If it is not listed for sale I wouldn't worry about it now. It is a field in a listing and it should show up as entered in the listing when you do go to sell.

You may have got the answer but if not please let me know and I can help you. Most of the auctions may not take place because the trustee is still in process and other delays.

However, if you still need assistance please contact me

I am very sorry to hear about your situation, Ashleigh. I see this everyday in my business; desperate homeowners renting out their homes without considering the effect it will have on the tenant when they go into foreclosure. I am in Washington State so cannot speak directly to the laws in Florida, however, I can offer you links as to exactly where to find out what your rights are.

Florida Specific:
Renters in Foreclosure: What Are Their Rights?
Florida's Renter's Guide to Foreclosure
Link to the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009

I do hope this helps. On your next home, I would suggest you work with a licensed broker to assist you in fully vetting a property to ensure that it will not go into foreclosure on you again. That is an expensive and emotionally draining experience that can be avoided with competent representation for the tenant.

Yes you could possibly be sued. Again you should see an attorney. It's possible that they might find a defense to proceeding to closing, perhaps due to a technical defect in the purchase and sale agreement. And the attorney would still need to determine whether the listing agreement is valid.

You're not going to get answers like that here. You need to see a real estate attorney.

You really need to find out if the lien holder took the property back or if a third party purchased it at auction.

A third party may be more likely to offer
