preferred home brokers: Protecting Tenants Rights in Foreclosed Homes 2-Minute Real Estate Video - 08/24/12 08:19 AM
Protecting the rights of tenants in foreclosed properties is an issue that's become prevelant in today's real estate. This could impact  renters in homes that are currently in the process of foreclosure or  homes which have already been taken back (foreclosed on) by the lender.

Meaning they may even have recently rented a property, signed a lease for a period of time, paid their rent/lease payments only to … (10 comments)
