Keep in mind that while the amount is negotiable, the bank is now the owner of the property so when they tell you to leave, you have to leave or they could take legal action. The money the bank is offering you is most likely "Cash for Keys" which is money that banks pay to foreclosed homeowners in exchange for the homeowner agreeing to leave the property in good condition. You wouldn't believe how many foreclosed homeowners strip their properties clean when they vacate -- I mean light fixtures, doors, crown molding, carpet, you name it.
If the bank now owns the property as of 8/5 and you have to be out by the 29th, the payment of rent seems to be a mute point since you will have already vacated before the first of the month. The bank should have assigned a rep to you and that rep should be able to tell your tenants where to send their rent checks for the next 90 days. I actually was once a tenant in a foreclosed 4-plex and the bank contacted me immediately and told me to send the checks to them.
I would strongly advise you to do everything by the book and comply with the banks requests, you don't want to risk any legal action against you.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck to you,

If you buy a foreclosure you have no idea of the cost involved and then there is the prop. taxes until you sell. i do not advise you to buy in an area you do not know anything about.... more
The owner ( probably the bank) is making it accessible for brokers to show it for sale.
The combination lock contains the keys to the house and the code will only be given to brokers upon request for showings.... more
I doubt that your Home Owners Association can block the agent without just cause. Remember, each property is privately owned adn the homeowner has the right to select the person of their choice to represent their property. If she is causing problems with the homeowners at large then you can have the Homeowners Association Board write a letter of complaint detailing the issues one to the local Biard of Realtors In Los Angeles County that would be the Los Angeles County Board of Realtors. http://www.lacbor.org/
Good luck - and remember a Realtor can threaten you with their fleet of lawyers but you have the entire Board of Realtors looking out for you. None of us like having unethical or uneducated realtors giving us all a bad name. But prove your claims first- beyond a reasonable doubt.... more
First, if your information is correct about the bank's foreclosure taking effect on 7/19 property rights typically belong to the owner until that time. This means that they can use the property as they see fit and place whoever they wish in it. Once the foreclosure takes placr and the bank takes owership, they will need to go through the process of removing the occupants. This could consume weeks or months.
Secondly, if you feel you have been provided misinformation by an agent, it may be appropriate to take this up initially with their "broker" and then with the local board of realtors as a possible ethics violation.
On the matter of water damage, most condo associations operate with a set of regulations that allows the association management to access a unit in emergency situations to protect the rights and property of others. This certainly seems that it may apply here. We strongly recommend referring to your association documents or attorney for additional information on this.
You need to get an attorney to review your situation. As agents we deal with foreclosures, defaults and short sales, but our licensing is limited.
How this affects you could be in multiple ways depending on the equity available in the property, the borrowers financial status and what may happen next. If you don't get on this right away, you may risk being in a more difficult position if they begin to fall behind your lien. Meet with an attorney right away.... more
You can still do a short sale and keep foreclosure off your credit. We can try to negotiate with your lender to let you off the hook for the deficiency. We have been successful with this. If you're not satisfied with the terms, at the end of the day, you don't have to close. You can always let the property go to foreclosure later, but you should, at least, exhaust all your better options.
We are a professional short sale service and would be happy to explain the process to you. Please call us directly to discuss your specific situation. Our services are FREE to homeowners. We look forward to hearing from you.

Depending on the value of the property there may or may not be tax consequences. This is a question best answered by a tax professional.
In some instances, California allows for deficiency judgments. This means the lender can come after you for part or all of their loss on the property. But as California likes to make it complicated, this question needs to be answered by an attorney.
Have you discussed with your lender the option of doing a short sale where they would agree not to come after you for a deficiency? This is sometimes the best option in states where lenders are allowed deficiency judgments.
If you're unable to afford an attorney, contact your local legal aide office.... more

The purpose of a quitclaim deed is when one party wants another to relinquish their interest in a property. In the context of a foreclosure it won't help, but there is something called a deed in lieu of foreclosure where the person(s) on title sign over their interest to avoid the foreclosure process. Usually this only works if there is equity in the property.... more
If the property has been foreclosed upon and the title has actually transferred back to the lender, then it would be a matter of public record and the change in ownership would be accessible by doing a title search. If you would like to email me the address of the property, I would be happy to look it up for you. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good day!
