I am trying to find out if the house that I am currently renting is going up for sale or is foreclosing.

Asked by Patriceguerrero, 92301 Tue Jul 13, 2010

The owner gives me very vague details on whether its foreclosing or not. I keep getting fliers in the mail indicating that the house is up for auction on different days. I need to know if and when the house is to sell because I have a family to look out for and its in my best interest is to provide for them the best way I know how. The property address is 18430 Rieman Rd. Adelanto, California 92301

Patrice,

Foreclosure notices are public records at the county level and a quick search of your address on google these days should pull up any listings for sale. Hope that helps and good luck to you.

Patrice:

Foreclosures are pubic record and you could contact the County Recorder to see if you home has a Notice of Default filed against it. You should also be very clear, when speaking with your landlord, about your situation and desire to protect your family. Let them know you will work with them, but you really need them to be honest with you.

That being said, I checked ForeclosureRadar (a paid service that provides information about properties in foreclosure). They are usually 95% - 99% accurate. Your address is NOT one of the 588 homes in Adelanto that are currently in some stage of foreclosure. It is possible that the owner is trying to sell the home or, possibly, has fallen behind on the payments, however, based on my search of the MLS the property is not listed for sale. Lastly, the owner could be working with the lender on a loan modification (which usually delays the filing of a Notice of Default). The only way you would find this out is if the owner felt comfortable sharing that information with you.

Lastly, please know, California has some strong laws that protect tenants as long as they are not in default on their lease or renntal agreement. To protect yourself, continue to pay your rents and make sure you have current receipts for payment (cancelled checks are sufficient). In today's economic climate, renters do not have it easy, I wish you much luck and peace of mind. Dare to Dream.

Try searching for the property on this website by the property owner's name to see if you can find any foreclosure records:
