Help the community by answering this question:


The renters have rights but the go down substantially when it comes to the government collecting on a bad debt. check your local advocacy board for extra help but I'd expect to find a new home.

Yes the bank will work with you on the time frame on when to leave the property. The bank will appoint an agen to market the property and the bank will usually offer you some assistance finacially to leave the property clean. If you do not work with the bank on leaving in a timely maner they will proceed forward with a formal eviction.

You have rights, especially as a renter, the owner may lose the home and then the bank takes it over, the bank then assigns an agent to work on getting you out of the house in a timely fashion. The owner has to give you 30 days, depending on lease/rental agreement you have. Most banks are willing to work with you though.

Yes, you have rights. There are legal time frames that you must be given to move. Usually no less than 30 days after you have been given notice to move in writing.. You need to contact your local housing authority to find out what the law is there, don't wait. You might also want to contact a local Realtor who can help you find a new rental. Good luck.
