If El Camino High is your preference then rule of thumb is contain your search to west of College. Although do not be hasty in your conclusions on High Schools. Mission Vista HS is a solid choice for tracts east of College and some will swear also to Vista High. You need to visit the schools and research them further, and if done so, and El Camino is the choice, then in and around the school itself or some very fine neighborhoods. ... more

The short answer is, no, you don't need to worry about paying rent for the time being. Yet, in no way does this let you off the hook for paying back rent for the time you have resided in the property, should you ultimately come to an agreement with the bank (or new owner) to continue renting the condo.

Have you been contacted by the bank since the property was foreclosed on? Provided you are a renter, in California you will be provided sixty (60) days written notice to vacate the premises; in the case of residential property, I have never heard of an instance where a bank asked the tenant being kicked out to pay rent in the interim.

If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact me directly.

If you are prepared to move out of the house without warning. Once the house becomes an REO which means the foreclosure process is complete and ownership has transferred back to the bank. This time frame varies with each property. The bank turns the property over to an asset managing company immediately. Somebody will contact you right away, and the eviction process starts simultaniously. Some banks will offer you cash for keys. Which means if you move out within 14-22 days you may receive a monetary reward for leaving and taking all your belongings, and leave the property in broom swept condition. This amount varies bank by bank, and depends on the price of the home. It can be anywhere from $500 and up. It depends how cooperative one is with moving. The faster you move the more money is usually offered. The cash for keys agreement is a signed agreement with you and the bank. If you do not follow it, there will be no money. This is the simple scenario and common. I have been involved with many. Cooperation is always best for everyone! Hope this helps. ... more
