Protecting Tenants Rights in Foreclosed Homes 2-Minute Real Estate Video

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Preferred Home Brokers 00402040

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.

There are many times that honest tenants have been bamboozled (obviously been mislead) by owners of residential properties that have been in foreclosure and/or on the verge of the lender/bank taking the home back. Meaning they may even have recently rented a property, signed a lease for a period of time, paid their rent/lease payments only to find mortgage holder came knocking at the door!

And if that’s the case, what’s a tenant to do? Take a quick look at this 2-Minute Real Estate Video to learn more about tenants rights and the Federal Law more commonly known Title VII Protecting Tenants Rights AT Foreclosed ACT.

A Bona fide lease of tenancy - for purposes of this section:

1. the mortgagor or the child, spouse, or parent of the mortgagor under the contras is not the tenant:

2. the lease or tenancy was the result of an arms-length transaction: and

3. the lease or tenancy requires the receipt of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property or the unit's rent is reduced or subsidized due to a Federal, State or Local subsidy.

Please keep in mind this is a Federal law and there are some exclusions! CHECK WITH THE PROPER PROFESSIONAL for additionals laws in your state!

Lynda, great information, and landlords need to know what they are doing, or hire a property manager!   Tenants do have rights!

Joan & Tina ~ Thanks for the comments, good hearing from you both. 

I see the tenant/lender issue as 2-fold, some tenants are just plain scammers, claiming they have a bona fide lease when they don't...& then the others who are truly mislead by unscrupulous owners...therefore it's necessary to assume they're all honest and work from that perspective.

Lynda, great information.  It's so unfortunate that so many are touched by the housing fiasco.  Hopefully, tenants who are in a foreclosed home situation will get some valuable insight into their rights.
