Washington DC Renter and DC Landlord facing foreclosure Questions. How will I know if my landlord is in trouble?

Even though Washington DC is one of the most performing Real Estate Markets in the country,like any other major Metropolitian area Real Estate Market,Washington DC has its fair share of houses that are about to go in Foreclosures. So if you are a Washington DC renter who is renting a house in Washington DC that is about to go into foreclosure or think it is about to go into foreclosure because you are not sure,you probably have some questions but don't know where to get answers.

 

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. You can also seek free legal advice from organizations such as Neighborhood Legal Services Program 4645 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave, NE Washington DC 20019 (202)399-1346  www.nlsp.org, Landlord Tenant Resource Center Court Building B, 510 4th St NW,Room 115 Washington DC 20001 (202) 508-1710 www.dcbar.org, Neighborhood Legal Services Program 3101 Martin Luther King Jr.Ave., SE 3rd Floor Washington DC 20032 (202) 678-2000 www.nlsp.org and D.C Bar-Pro Bono 1101 K Street NW,Suite 200 Washington DC 20005 (202) 737-4700 ext.3290 www.dcbar.org

Check your public records online. Our public trustee lists all NEDs filed. After the NED is filed the actual foreclosure sale happens in 120 days or so.
