I purchased a Foreclosed Rental Property in NYC - do I have to deal with the prior owner's contracts

Asked by robinpace, New York, NY Tue Jul 8, 2014

The prior owner (who was foreclosed on) had a lease agreement with a laundry company to furnish the laundry room with equipment - there's still 6 years remaining on that 10-year lease (which has a provision for assignment). Since the former owner was foreclosed on, am I bound by a Lease entered into by them years before I purchased the property?

Great questions for an attorney. Foreclosure laws vary in different states and what one agent may have heard, may not be reliable. Please, in a situation like this get the most up to date answer from the most reliable source, a local attorney who practices commercial and residential real estate. You can't afford to get this wrong.

Thank you for your quick response - I'm in the process of finding representation now but was hoping there was an "easy answer".
