Foreclosure

Karin

We moved into a single family dwelling with a one year lease September 2011. The landlord never wanted to change his mailing address and all his mail is still coming to the rental house we are in. The landlord gave me an address in Antioch where I would send his mail and rent check. I had the address in my iPhone my I phone was recently stolen as a result I had to re-create all my contacts. I had landlords cell phone but not the address. I called him about 3 months ago to ge the address so I could send his mail and rent check. I left message on voice mail.

OK. How crazy can things get?

4 months after moving into a new home with a 2 year lease, my landlord informs me she is selling the place and starts having strangers coming in and out of my home.

May 2010--We are in a situation where we rented for almost 8 years from a landlord we had a great relationship with. Unbeknownst to us, the owner of our property was hoping to get his mortgage re-financed with BofA due to the market crash. Of course, as banks did back then... they told the owner they wouldn't work to refinance him unless he was delinquent on his payments. Feeling he had no other option, the owner withheld his mortgage payments (though we continued paying our rent). As history proved, instead of "working with" the owner, BofA immediately foreclosed.
