Help for Renters In Foreclosure - Brochure

If your landlord has not paid the mortgage and the bank forecloses on the property, you may have the right to stay for the rest of your lease. If your lease is month-to-month, the new owner may still be required to give you a valid 90-day notice to va-cate after the foreclosure is complete.

In the attached brochure, there is some information to help you figure out what is going on, what you can do, and where to find referrals for legal advice and other assistance.
