Hello MGM,

Do you pay your rent to the owner of the real estate or to a property management company? If you pay the owner direct, you can check with a title company direct or if you are comfortable, you can provide me with the address and I'll be happy to check and see if the property has had any foreclosure activity.

If you pay a property management company, you should discuss this with them immediately. IF you think that there is a possibility that the owner is not paying the payments, you might have a discussion with the owner and look at the possibility of utilizing a property management firm. There is a fee for the service, but the peace of mind that it gives you in this current market will be PRICELESS.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Who are you renting from? Is it a rental company or the owner of the house? PLease ask who ever your renting from.

Any agent or broker can provide this information to you without charge or obligation. It takes two minutes to look it up. You should also know your rights as a tenant. Even in a foreclosure situation, a tenant, if you have a lease--not a month to month---you still have rights. When in doubt contact a real estate attorney. Good luck.

Hi Mfm:
The agents have given you the right information, you can have a Realtor check out the information for you. If you actually are in foreclosure I believe you should have received notification at your home.

Good Luck:

If you give me the address I have a few sources and can look it up for you. It is becoming a real issue all across Southern California, so be as careful as you can.
