Renter’s Rights in Foreclosures

Renter’s Rights in Foreclosures

A federal law provides 90-day tenant protections for tenants living in foreclosed properties nationally. All tenants must get a 90-day notice before eviction process can be started as a result of foreclosure. In addition, most tenants who have leases can continue to live in their homes until the end of the term of their lease.

The rights of Section 8 tenants are also protected because the new owner at foreclosure must accept both the tenant’s lease and the housing assistance Payment (HAP) contract.
