Eviction foreclosures

By Jerry Powell

Me and my dependants need to know what our rites are a.s.a.p.  as the landlord has just told me he has received notice of forclosure on the home me , my wife and three children live in. He says he’s not sure of when they will lock us out.

Please Help’

Be careful… banks don’t have the same laws we have. They can evict you regardless of your current lease agreement. The best option is to get an attorney or the RPA involved. Banks will not listen to you, but they will most likely respond to a mediator or attorney. If you can’t afford an attorney, you will want to file a complaint with the RPA, they will investigate and document the case.

I don’t know about the bank that you are dealing with, but the bank I work at tries to work with renters. But the truth is that we always get the tenants out when a property is foreclosed on. Its much easier to show and sell a foreclosed property when there aren’t any tenants. Call the bank and see what they are willing to do.
