Foreclosure

Thomas (Tom)

We are just another four more people that are renters facing foreclosure. The owner has two (possibly three)notices of default@the Sacramento County Recorder's Office posted 8/5/08. The owner has made poor decisions resulting in short-falls, two pending foreclosures. He wasn't collecting rent from tenants with hard-luck histories, empathizing himself into a hard-luck situation of his own. He procrastinated many months before resorting to legal action to evict dead-beat tenants. One tenant stayed at a downtown residence for nearly two years, not paying rent.
