Your question showed up under zip 95133 which is San Jose, California. I don't know Michigan law or practices but my advice would be do not pay rent to the Property Management company. Use the letter you received to get hold of the county and ask what they want you to do.

There is a possibility that the county could ask you for rent from the point they notified you that they were the owner. Paying money to the property management company could amount to throwing your money away and still needing to pay rent to the county. Also unfortunately you probably have lost your cleaning deposit. If your city or county has rent mediation set up, try and talk to someone to try and get your cleaning deposit back.

If your rent is paid up, you have a right to stay till the end of the paid up period. But no, they cannot just change the locks and lock you out of your home. I expect someone from the bank will drop by to check on the property. At that pint you should get some official contact this person type of note telling you who to contact. Might be a good time to see if you can buy the property. Maybe we should meet to explore such options?

Hi Angie,
Believe it or not, right now is a great time to sell!!
Even though December is historically slower, there are still many active buyers and multiple offers are still the rule of the day!
If your house is ready to role, take advantage of the low inventory and go now!!
If you need help, just let me know.
Cheers,
Linda Baker, Alain Pinel Realtors

Please do not shoot the messenger;
It has been my experience that the Landlord usually ends up with the CASH:

You don't know who the Lender or the Listing Agent is, you don't know how to contact them.
The Listing Agent will knock on your door and if he catches you, he will make the offer to you.
But if he misses you, or if he CALLS, he will contact the Owner, (That would be the phone number he has; not yours.)

Do you think the Owner will pass the money on to you? Not likely!

As far as moving; the Tenant Rights Act gives a RENTER 30 days. And it should come from the new owner , the Bank, or the Listing Agent. If the Old Owner is telling you that, you should be skeptical. You should also be given a pice if paper, not a verbal notice.

Is there a Real Estate Company sign on the front lawn yet? If so, call that number.

I don't know if I have helped. Good luck and may God bless

Thank you for your question tg1199

I have a great deal of experience with short sale and bank owned properties here in the San Jose Area.

I expect that you are looking for the best deal, is that correct?"

I look for the best deal whether it is a short sale, bank owned property, probate sale, company owned property, regular distress sale or a sale for some other reason. I do not limit myself and my clients to only short sales and bank owned properties.

I get my clients the best deals wherever I can find them.

For more information, you may call me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

Tim Moore answered:
It's time to visit your lawyer and ask them, not us. If you are not the owner there is not much hope for you. You were wasting your time trying to buy it from the mortgage company, they could not sell it to you because they did not own it! They might have had a loan out on it, but they did not own it. After they foreclosed then they probably bought it and now they own it. ... more

Thank you, Tami for your question:

Prior to the Trustee's sale that property belongs to the homeowner. That homeowner is fighting to keep their home. the trustee's sale is aginst their wishes. Any person who attempts to go on to that property is trespassing on private property and is subject to prosecution for trespass.

Trustee's sales are all cash, with no guaratees of good title. There is no title insurance and there is no guarantee of good title.

Also at a Trustee's sale you only get the interest of the party foreclosing on the property. The interest could be a loan in second or third position subject to senior liens.

Those are just some the resons why people should not consider a Trustee's sale as a safe way to buy a home. You do not know what you are getting and unless you are very good at searching title information at the County Recorder's Office, you do not know what interest you are getting and what liens you must pay in addition to the amount that you paid at the Trustee's sale to get clear title to the property.



.


That is one of the reasons that Trustee's sales are very high risk for the bidders.

No, they do not have up to three years. California is a non-Judicial State. Foreclosure redemption rights info can be found here: http://www.foreclosure.com/statelaw_CA.html#6
And another good site is: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/calaw.html
The leginfo site is California Law. Check mark the box "Code of Civil Procedure" then input foreclosure in the keyword search box.

I do not see why you should buy a home at auction.com.

The homes at Auction.com are not bargains by any stretch of the imagination.

I recommend that to get the home that you want, that you do not limit yourself to Auction.com.

Have you considered doing a short sale instead? It would lessen the impact and longevity of a foreclosure on your record.
