This can be really scary for a tenant but most, if not all, states protect the legal rights of the tenants. I checked with the New York Department of Financial Services ( and they state that "Change of ownership due to foreclosure is not in itself good cause for eviction so in the absence of other compelling circumstances Section 8 tenants may not be evicted by the new owner." The only exception to the above is that a new owner can evict a tenant, in only one unit, if the owner intends to occupy that unit as his/her primary residence. In that case, the new owner must provide notice to vacate at least 90 days prior to the effective date of eviction. ... more

There was some new legislation designed to protect tenants. It is called the "Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act." The new law allows tenants who have a lease to remain in their home until the end of the lease period unless a new owner purchases the home at a foreclosure sale and intends to occupy it as a personal residence. In that case, the renter can be evicted with 90 days notice even if a longer-term lease is in force. Or so said an article in MSN Real Estate. Here is the link to read the article and get more information: ... more

Has anyone tried Prospect Mortgage since all the bad rap on BOA keeps appearing. I tried Prospect last year and was pleased at the ease of the process. I thought it would be a loooong drawn out process but it was completed within a few weeks; not months! ... more

I perform judgment acquisition and recovery. You do have a few options.

You could try to settle with that credit card company. Yet, if they already know that you're trying to refinance, then they might try to play some hardball sensing an opportunity for a pay-day relatively soon. Another option is to work with someone like me (a neutral third-party) who'd buy the judgment at a discount, and settle with you also at a discount (which you'll pay off before you close on the refinance). (We make the spread in between.) Another option is for you to work with a debt consolidator to help you to consolidate those 2 judgments into a single loan (for which you'll need to agree to go onto a payment plan), and they'll help you to remove those liens.

You could also ask them to agree to subjugate their lien behind any institutional financing (hence the refinance), or risk getting nothing at all if your lender forecloses on your property.

Keep in mind that each option has it's own set of caveats.
