My son has had to move twice

he is a renter

and now he has to move again this make,s the 3rd time

this is ridiculous moving cost,s money eewwwhhh

many renter,s are suffering this crap

the man who,s house he is renting now keeps calling for the rent my son,s wife tells him I am sorry but we have received paper,s in the mail from the bank that your house who we have paid you rent for the last 11 months is foreclosed on we wish you would have told us when you stopped making payments because as we told you in the beginning we did not want to have to move again for we had already had to move twice because of this crap
now we need to save our money so that we can afford to freaking move again
3 times in under 3 years is very hard on a family all the stress time and money

The landlord wants the rent even though he's not paying the mortgage? Oh, that's irony.
06:27 PM on 05/03/2012
that happened to me, too. my landlord got foreclosed on, so I lost my apartment. I have to say though that the bank let me live their rent-free for 4 months while the foreclosure was in process. I was lucky enough to be dealing with a very sympathetic bank officer who told me to not pay another penny to the man who had rented me an apartment in a 2-family home he didn't even really own anymore. He took first, last & security from me. I was a single mom with a minimum wage job. I was devastated the day I came home from work and found the bank's eviction notice on my door!
So, I guess times are different now... that was in the early 90's. Go figure, a bank with a heart! The police kept the weirdo "landlord" away from me & the premises, and I got to stay there rent-free for four months, was able to save for another apartment.

The worst thing that can happen to someone is losing or being kicked out of his/her home let alone being fired/laid off from a job.

Mortgage owners are held as friends of the court at the same time they are starting to foreclose. They know how to look like they have their stuff together even when it is outdated, fraudulent or doesn't exist. Any number of homes have gone onto the greased skids of foreclosure, when the true owners were not in default to the lender. Look over a hundred or so documents provided by a lender using the same hand writing allegedly signed by a non existing loan officer, or loan applicant using another's identity to take out a "Cash Out" mortgage. The true owner has a more difficult time reclaiming their property which was wrongfully foreclosed. Posession is supposed to create a legal presumption. Courts are bending over forwards for some of these lenders. I'm no stranger. I worked in the industry about 30 years.

And then companies like Tropical Prudental Realty in (Tampa) list and sell the house to a veteran making out and out lies. They make the veteran PAY for items the V.A. requires the seller to pay, make fale statements on the closing doucmens AND THEN claim that it is not their fault they buyer should have known things that were hidden about the properties even though the vet was from out of town. I know because I am one of their victems and have been fighting for 3 YEARS to make it right.

I'm wondering -- did any of the tenants call 911 to report an armed home invasion?

Just because the bugg3rs have some papers and uniforms instead of ski masks and crowbars, it's still the same thing.

That's the way I see it too. Like to see some rent-a-cop try to move me or anyone I care about. I'd even fight for that sweet old lady down the hall with no family on her side

If they knock on the door in daylight, they better have a badge and a warrant. If they bust in at 3am, they better have someone handy to scrape them off my floor and a bag to put them in.

911 would be my first option. Then a call to a lawyer friend and photos on a cell phone (if given the opportunity) and then a physical ruckus.

The true tragedy of this and so many other stories of corporate abuse is that kids are growing up to believe that this kind of thing is normal and OK. Our liberties will be freely given away by those that have not been taught of their existence.

Great God Almighty. When I was visiting South America, I heard stories of people being dragged out of their beds in the middle of the night by whichever dictator happened to be in power. Now it's happening here. The only difference is that our dictators have corporate logos.

Warning if you have a mortgage! It does not matter if you make your payments on time or even if you have paid off your mortgage. The Big Banks backed by there republican flunkies are going to get you. They will kie and hire thugs from out of town who will come in with masks to retake your house right out from under you they do not care. And you had better save up a few thousand some where other then your bank becuse they will freeze it so that you can not pay a lawyer to sue for the return of your property or anything else and if on the slight chance you did win a settelement from the bank your great grandchildren might get it.
If the Republicans do not pass a law letting the banks off.

It's so nice that you make this a "Republican" issue; Corzine and his ilk are all Democrats; the CEO of JPMORGAN/CHASE is a Democrat... How about doing some homework before you go spouting off and wipe your chin your drooling again...

The event in Sacremento was illegal and the State Attorney General better look into it --- this is why in California, sheriff deputies are the only ones that have the legal authority to 'take' you from the resisdence. I can't believe those resisdents went like sheep...

The problem is that many Americans are not aware of their own rights and the law. It's also human nature for some people to obey the appearance of authority. That's how guys pretending to be police broke in some houses around here, at least. It's scary to contemplate, though.

First there are laws for proper use of tasers and secondly The Castle Law is in effect at the time. I would have used Fla. law to Stand My Ground in this case. This should not be happening in America. The banks that received ball out money should not be allowed to foreclose on homes they told people could afford. The banks should be giving people the right to refinance and rebuild there lives. Banks are making profits off money they lend out and the poor home owners are drowing. Bank America bought all of Countrywide loans that were in default or not indefault.
We all need to step foward for out rights against the banking system.

California doesn't have a specific Castle Doctrine. We do have PC 198.5:
198.5. Any person using force intended or likely to cause death or
great bodily injury within his or her residence shall be presumed to
have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great
bodily injury to self, family, or a member of the household when that
force is used against another person, not a member of the family or
household, who unlawfully and forcibly enters or has unlawfully and
forcibly entered the residence and the person using the force knew or
had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry occurred.
As used in this section, great bodily injury means a significant
or substantial physical injury.

Stand Your Ground doesn't do anything for a homeowner/resident in their home that Castle Law wouldn't already do for the resident. SYG was extrapolated from Castle Law.

anytime an industry is owned by the republicans these kinds of events happen more and more frequently. And our law makers turn their heads and look the other direction.
