How can I find out if the place I rent is in foreclosure and what is happening with the foreclosure?
If the house or apartment you’re renting is under a foreclosure, you still have rights, and your landlord is still responsible for that property until the foreclosure is complete.
In most cases, a foreclosure takes up to 90 days to complete, so you can’t be evicted during this time unless you refuse to pay rent, which you still owe to your landlord.
If you receive court papers, don’t ignore them. Responding to the court will actually benefit you, because you’ll be given a set day that you have to move out by. If you ignore the papers, a marshal hired by the new owner can give you 24 hours’ notice before moving your things out for you.
Can hiring an attorney give me a better a chance of avoiding foreclosure?
If your goal is only to stay in your home through the foreclosure process, you may not want the added expense of hiring an attorney.
However, if you have a defense to stay in your home, an attorney will be able to help you through the lawsuit. There are a few reasons that you may have a strong defense that would require an attorney, and these usually vary slightly by state.
In general, these defenses include mistakes or lack of proof on behalf of the foreclosing party, but there are other reasons, such as if you’re a member of a military service, in which case you’d have special protections against foreclosure. An attorney will better your chances of avoiding foreclosure in cases like these.
