Well this week in my new "Washington DC Renter and Landlord facing Foreclosure Questions" blog, I am going to be posting some questions and answers to those questions that I am sure some Washington DC renters will want to know about.
Q: How will I know if my landlord is in trouble?
A: Open all mail addressed to "occupant","current resident," or "tenant", especially if it is from a law firm,bank or finance company. Be aware of any additional notices. In D.C,a bank is not required though to notify tenants of a foreclosure, but if you get documents you should contact a tenant advocate to help you figure out if you need to change who you pay rent to.
Tenant advocates can assist you in understanding your rights. Ask to speak to a tenant advocate at Housing Counseling Services at (202) 667-7006: Latino Economic Development Corporation (866) 977-LEDC (5332):or the D.C Office of the Tenant Advocate, (202)719-6560 or www.ota.dc.gov.
