    Looking for all the "arm-chair" and Real lawyers around here....

    We've recently found out that the house we're renting is being foreclosed on.
    We do not have a lease, so it's just on a monthly basis.
    A record search shows that this has actually been going on since Sept. '07
    If it had just been filed it probably wouldn't bother me so much as I know these things take time. But almost 4 years, now?? I feel like time is quickly running out.
    Since there is no lease all they need is a 3 day eviction notice.
    How do I stall?
    Landlord lives 2 hours away.
    We've already mailed the rent.
    Should we stop-payment?
    Such a pain in the ass to have to move again. even MORE of a pain in the ass to have to come up with first, last, and security.
    Speaking of which; we only had to pay 1st and security for this place.

    Any advice or tips??
    :confused:

    Maybe call the bank or whoever is foreclosing. They may like having a renter and continue it as a rental or at least keep you in there until they find a buyer.

    I've never heard of 3-day eviction until you've already used up all the 30-day eviction notices.

    It usually goes something like this..you get a 30-day eviction notice...30 days come and go, landlord takes you to court...court date comes and they get a writ of whatever (more time) then once they have that order, they can issue the three day.

    Why would you not pay your rent?????

    Why would you not pay your rent and have you received an eviction notice?

    If not, what's the problem? It's a rental. If it goes, you'll get 30 days to find new digs. Big whoop.

    My rent has always been on time.
    Just thinking we would need the money to put on the next place if the bottom falls out of this.

    Here in FL, the 30 day is if you've paid the last month's rent. We just paid 1st and security deposit

    The bank is going to boot you out....

    I would stop the rent check as quickly as possible...

    Call the bank as quickly as possible and find out all of your options.

    that has merit, it depends on what your payment is relative to the monthly mortgage the owner apparently isn't paying.

    TO evict you they need a Marshall, right? so, lots happens in between, wait to see if you can contact the bank itself.
