I owe the Landlords that are foreclosing, without telling their tenants, an apology

by Connor T. MacIvor on March 8, 2012

Who is going to love me best?

Because of these, almost “Daily”, updates for the newest Foreclosure activity in the Cities that compose the Santa Clarita Valley, I have received many inquires from those of you that are in the “Santa Clarita Tenant realm”.

The Call

The callers usually start off this way, “Hello, Yes, I saw a home I’m renting on your website.  It says it is a Pre-Foreclosure.  Can you please tell me what that means?  I just paid rent!”

I think this “internet” thing is going to catch on

Googling and Binging are very powerful search systems.  I was speaking with Mike Chupa on our Santa Clarita Radio show yesterday.  He and I both agreed it is a wondrous time when each and every one of us have the ability to carry around “All of the Worlds Knowledge” in our pocket.  I’m referring to Phones with internet access.

When these “concerned Santa Clarita tenants” call, they have typically just finished a Google Search of their complete address.  This usually comes from a document that was posted on their door notifying the “occupant” of the Notice of Default filing.  We have also had Santa Clarita tenants, in some instances, tell us that they also became curious when receiving “certified mail” that had been sent to the property in the owners name(which they noted was “unusual”).

Renter and Tenant Questions

The questions that typically come next from the Santa Clarita renter? “Should I keep paying rent?” and ”When do I have to move out?”  

The answer to the first, of the two questions, ” Should I keep paying rent?” – that is something that we are unable to help you with.  It is just like clients that come to our offices to have us Short Sale their Santa Clarita Home.  They usually ask, “Should I stop making my mortgage payments?”  We say that decision is a completely personal one.  That is something that you will have to make you own personal decision about.

It is the same advice from my Santa Clarita REMAX Paris911 Team and I when renters ask us if they should continue paying their LandLord.  It’s the renters decision.  However, I tell the “renter-tenant”, what I would do.  

Regarding the Renter’s question pertaining to, “When do I have to move out?”  That is a bit more tricky.  There is time, typically in months, before a property completes the foreclosure process.  At that time, there will need to be a verification of occupancy performed by the Bank(or new owner).  They door knock to identify who is in the home, ask for copies of lease or rental agreements, and give the renter an ultimatum.  The trick to Notice of Default filingsgetting what you need is by asking for it.

The Sheriff’s are gonna throw me out any day!

If you are worried that the Sheriff’s are going to break down your door and kick you out in your underwear, don’t.  You will have notice before a action of that type with the property that you are renting.  “Aggressive” notices of that type are usually taped to the front door.  So, unless you have someone stealing notices that are taped to your front door, you should get a good deal of advanced notice.

I would set up an in person meeting and confront them on the fact a Notice of Default was filed and work out a game plan that benefits both parties.

Do you think I owe the Property owners an apology?  Would you quit paying your landlord rent if you were in the same situation?  What would your “in person” meeting with the landlord be like? – Please Comment Below!!!
