What a kick in the arse. I was going to pay rent last night when hubby came home with the newspaper and showed me something in the legals. Our landlords rentals are all going up for auction on Dec. 9, 2009: via foreclosure on all his property.
So I went and looked up court papers (easy to do and for free, just go to your states court site and you can do a search) and I found out that the paperwork had been filed in 2008, and just finally was finalized. He didn't even have the nerve to tell us, and this is one of my husband's oldest friends.
We are going to the bank involved with this later today. In all honestly, because we didn't receive any notice (which legally we were suppose to), we have a feeling he told them that we had moved out and he wasn't paying the bank money due, pocketing it instead.
Now, thank goodness for Obama's stimulas bill that went through in May 2009, that with foreclosure to rentals, the sheriff canNot show up the day after the auction and kick us out. They have to legally give us 60 days from the end of the month to find a new place. To read more of this new bill: http://tenantstogether.org/article.php?id=723Â
Of course, we aren't waiting. We are going to start looking for places this upcoming week. There is quite a few places around here up for rent. I just don't feel like packing again. I finally had the last box unpacked last week from our big move...and now, got to start all over again.
Not a happy camper right now.
