Bethany Will…, Renter in 77396

Bethany Willis answered:
*** I have a question related to this:
I signed a lease with a so-called property manager. Really just a glorified neighbor.
I have not once spoken to the landlord. Who has moved out of state. The bank has come out to the house and said its in foreclosure, and that if they were me they would suggest for my familys sake for me to move out before 2months is up. All of their attempts at contacting her have been null. The mortgage is not being paid for months now, but my rent has. I cannot move without getting my deposit back or not paying rent. Im very anxious as a single mother. I have also received a letter from the home insurance company saying that the insurance hasn't been paid and that in the underlying terms of her mortgage she must pay for home insurance. My lease does not have the landlord's name anywhere on it. Everything was done through this so called property manager. Nothing has been fixed when I have requested. The landlord didn't come down to meet me the week after signing my lease like I was told she would. Im feeling like the whole thing is a big scam. The bank field agents Ive spoken to said they see this all the time.

I'm a little confused. Does he own more than one condo. Or are you talking about room mates in the same condo?

Great answers below.

Yes, it's legal. The landlord is still the legal owner of the home until the bank forecloses. If you had a rental agreement, the terms of the agreement are still in effect. ... more

Hi Rochelle,
We as realtors are not really allowed to offer bad comments about any place! My advice to you is to check out for yourself the upkeep of the place. How does it look? I think that is a good indicator. As a renter you do not really need to be concerned with the association except to know the pool times and if you can have anything like a bbq or something on your patio or balcony. That may affect you. Ask the owner about that. You can also go to the local PD for crime statistics in the area. Some are even online. If you have any other concerns go to the complex and see if you can talk to any of the neighbors that may be out and about.
