Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: The home I am renting (I have a lease) was recently acquired by different ownership via a tax lien. What are the responsibility of each of the parties and what legal standing do I have concerning my lease with the prior owner?

Answer: The rights and responsibilities of existing tenants and new owners in such situations can depend on several factors, including the nature of the foreclosure sale and whether the tenant received advance notice. For legal advice about what, if any, options you may have, you should speak with an attorney.
