Tenants and Foreclosure

VWL > Blog > Foreclosure > Tenants and Foreclosure

Many tenants are finding out that the property they are renting has been foreclosed on. As I stated in an earlier post, NY foreclosure law now requires that tenants residing in foreclosed properties receive written notification of the change in ownership of the property. The law also requires that the tenant be allowed to remain in  the foreclosed home for the remainder of their lease term or 90 days, whichever is longer.

Hopefully, you have a lease that was executed prior to the start of the foreclosure action and can find suitable housing for you and your family before your lease expires. If you do not have a lease, then you will only have 90 days to pack up and move your loved ones and all of your belongings.  After that, the new owner, which often times is the foreclosing lender, will seek to evict you.

If you are facing this type of eviction or any other type of eviction, we may be able to stop the eviction and get you additional time to move, etc. We were recently able to stop a foreclosing lender from forcing a family of seven (7) out onto the street.
