I have lived in this small two-bedroom house on a quiet residential street in Pasadena, CA for a little over two years. I've put a lot of my own money into the house, maintained it myself and always paid rent on time. That is, until eight months ago when, like a lot of people, I lost my job.

My landlord has been very understanding and not pressured me to move. I borrowed money from family to pay a portion of the back rent, but then my house was robbed.



We paid our rent and had a 1 year lease until Aug 20, 2010, with the option to buy. WITHOUT A COURT ORDER,Washington Mutual locked us out of our home, unlawfully evicting a single mother and son. Without any relocation services, without giving the deposit back within 21 days. Since then, everything in the home has been stolen. We are now homeless

I signed a one year lease option in July 2008 for 383 Calypso Beach Drive Copperopolis, California 95228,Calypso Bay Sub Division, and on August 20 2008 we moved in as scheduled.


We are renting a house in San Jose, CA. On April 22 2009 there was a "notice of trustee sale" taped to our door, advising that the property was going to auction on May 11, and that if it did not sell, ownership would revert to the bank. We discussed this with our landlord, and several days later he advised us that he had been granted additional time to negotiate with the bank, and that the trustee sale would be postponed for at least 90 days.

Update to Foreclosure Hell.

On May 12th some party unknown crept up to our door and taped a Notice To Quit our front door. They didn’t even have the nerve to knock on the door and deliver it to myself (disabled in wheelchair) or my 84 year old mother as we were both home watching TV at the time. The notice was kind of generic as it listed 3 types of notice, 3day – 30day - & 60 day. I guess they still don’t know who is living here as they continue to think that the original landlord lives in one of the Four single family dwellings.


I am writing to share my view of the La Mirage situation in Ridgecrest. As talked about by other tenants and posted on your news page, the residents of La Mirage are the latest victims of McConville and his associated scammers. I have lived in La Mirage since 2003 and have dutifully paid rent, but like my neighbors will soon be asked to leave. Losing 300 rental units in a town of 25,000 is significant. A recent article in our local paper quoted one family as having to leave town due to not being able to find a place to live.


While being added to the statistics, I am very happy that I found your website. Thank you for all you are doing on behalf of tenants in foreclosure. I will pass this website address on to the other three occupied units in this building.


We have lived in the same rental home for the last 3 years. We have always paid our rent and to the best of out knowledge everything was fine, until there was a trustee sale notice put up on the outside of our house. I called the landlord and he assured me that he was trying to rewrite the loan on the home and he was only behind a couple of payments. This turned out to be untrue. He said he had spoken to a lawyer that was more then happy to take his money and then produce no results.


I'm also a victim of a Diamond House Development called 'La Mirage Duplex Homes'. I have retired from the Navy recently, and never dreamed that I was going to end up in a situation like this. Diamon House Development has fell into foreclosure on 300 units here in Ridgecrest, California. This is causing a major strain on this little town of 30,000. I'm being forced out of a really nice place (former base housing) and may end up in a less than desirable home for my wife and I.
