Charles Rorive answered:
The only suggestion I would have is to contact the county assessor where you live and ask them for the names of the landowners on title. These would be the people that have the right to rent the property unless it is through a property management company or someone with a power of attorney.

Some, but not all counties have this information available on line...

Best of luck.

The lender when they foreclose technically wipe out your lease. But, every lender is different. Some will file immediately to get possession and sometimes you'll be able to stay for years.

They, at some point, will contact you. Wait and see what happens. You might get very lucky but be prepared to move soon.

Also, now and right after the foreclosure, don't expect anyone to do any repairs since the lease is void.

Good luck!

Good Evening Yvinikkikenny,

Actually since the Patriot Act going in effect in the Bush Administration.... oRt investors require a Credit Check for confirming the behavior of past payments.... also check for evictions reports to municipal courts AND to confirm that the prospect tenant is NOT a active Felon.....

Its not gonna get easier with this Gun Issue occurring.... a lot of paranoia out there... Hopefully this will calm down

Joshua Stein answered:
Your lease gives you the right to live there, but at the end of the day, you live in your landlord's place. You can't just change the locks. Trying to keep your landlord out is most likely a violation of your lease on your part, and could lead to your eviction.

The standard lease calls for the landlord to give reasonable care to give that notice, but it is not a requirement. In fact, the next part says the landlord can enter whenever they want if necessary, and to inform you within a certain amount of time as to the nature of the visit and who was there.

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Danielle, I am so sorry to hear what has happened to you.

I do think you need legal advice..........if I understand you correctly, you paid the rent, but the management company that collected it never paid the landlord, and "ran off" with your, and other people's, money?

If you have proof you paid, I can't see how the landlord can force you out.
It seems to me he needs to go after the rental office personnel, and as long as you continue to pay your rent on time, I can't understand why he'd want you to move.

If I am missing something here, please fill me in.

If I have it correctly, and the landlord continues to harrass you, please seek a legal opinion for your own protection.

Hope your ankles heal quickly!
Best wishes!
