Asked by Touris Rochelle, Miami, FL Tue Jun 24, 2008

home up for short sale back in April , then on Saturday I get served with forclosure papers,I called the lawyer representing the mortgage company and they said the paper work that came was for me the tenant, now I called my landlord and at first she was not answering my calls but I finnaly got in contact with her and she was very rude and told me that I knew the house was going up for foreclosure becouse she told me that she was putting it up for short sale, I had no idea that a short sale was preforclosure and she has not been paying the mortgage since April(the month I renewed my lease) how can I get out of this situation without getting an evicction becouse I dont feel safe knowing that I'm paying my rent which is 1600 monthly and she has not been paying the mortgage,taxes or home owner association. Please I really need advice I 'm a single mom with three girls and They need stability in their lives.

Your local city or county might be able to refer you to attorneys that give out free advice. Maybe even a google search might help. Search for free legal advice for single parents etc. The most important thing you can do first is reading up on the Florida Landlord Tenant law. I've provided a link here. Good Luck.

Stop paying your landlord and wait it out. You can probably get cash from the bank when they formally foreclose on the house in order to get you to leave.
