Tenants In Foreclosed Housing Have Rights In Connecticut

Persons who rent an apartment in a property that is going through foreclosure have legal protections that safeguard them from unfair treatment and upheaval, the Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Protection said today. Since some of these protections have been enhanced by recent legislation, it is a good time to remind property owners, property managing and servicing companies and real estate brokers of their legal obligations.

“At least a half-dozen state and federal laws have protections for tenants of rental properties going through foreclosure. The owners of foreclosed properties — often banks — as well as property managing and servicing companies and real estate brokers must adhere to these protections so that tenants are not improperly uprooted from their homes,” Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein said.

The federal Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009, as clarified by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, requires that most tenants in occupancy at the time a property title is transferred between owners due to foreclosure cannot be required to vacate for at least 90 days after title passes, or until the end of their lease, whichever is later. This includes leases entered into while the foreclosure action was pending. Tenants must receive notice of the foreclosure and their rights to stay before any post-foreclosure eviction may be brought in court.

  1. Addendum to prior post about tenant friend:

    US BANK and US BANCORP president and CEO Richard Davis Office was directly contacted by the tenant a few weeks ago reporting a:

    code and ethics violation

    which was promptly responded to, but when the buck was passed to another managing department about FIVE BROTHERS and the Vendor crimes and violations of PTAF and everything stated in the prior post, they replied that they had done nothing wrong and that was the end of that, so now my friend is sueing Richard Davis and the whole board of directors and other Executives individually and personally for this neglect to do what is right for the:

    “communties and neighbors” of this financial institution.

  2. Addendum to prior comment:

    US BANK BANCORP is the Bank that has done nothing to help even though the tenant has contacted the Office of President and CEO Richard Davis by email several weeks ago as a reported violation of the code of ethics of this financial institution.. The assistant to Richard Davis resonded promptly about these details, but after this notice and report was forwarded they dropped the ball again and said that all of this was nothing illegal and would not be doing anything to provide a remedy about this horrific tragedy as they sit in their ivory towers and ignore reality of what is happening down on the streets in communities and to the neighbors they state in the code of ethics is a priority to help and do no harm.

  3. I have a friend in Indiana that this law and state law has made absolutely no differencee at all>

    My frriend had no notice during a pending floreclosure and a vendor showed up with police that assisted them in locking out my friend that is legally blind and given only ten minutes to get out. Of course he left everytin behind under threat of arrest.

    This occured about five months before a sheriff sale and before the bank became owner.

    My friend filed several lawsuits and is still trying to do something in court about what all has happened, but so far the dourts have all dismissed this acton by this tenant for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, although those of us lay people have no problem at all understaniding what the lawsuits claim and the damages that should be provided by a jury.

    About a month after the sheriiff sale the ssame vendor creew came back and hid their faces as we took photographs of them stealing everything from the home even though the landlord is now the bank and not the former owner. Why yhide your faces if what you are doing is legal?

    The police were misinformed about thie bank owning the property even before there was a decree of foreclosure Ordered.

    These vendors locked fived cats of my friend in the house and left them there to die of thirst and hunger and the local po,lice and animal shelter did not care. One of the cats was a runt kitten and it is believed it did not survive the eight days of confinemt before the cats escaped out a loosely fitted boarded up basement window and were watered and fed, but never captured, so who knows what actually happened to these poor scared cats.

    These vendors came from over a hundred miles away to get the obvious booty and treasure they plundered as the police said that the prosecutor said this was all ok.

    The tenant in poverty was arrested for trespass when trying to catsch these cats and was held in jail for over six weeks under very excessive bail and false arrest before the charge was dropped, just three days before jury trial.

    Thhe tenant, dispite dozens of phone calls and the lawsuits was never allowed to have access to prevent the conversion and theft.of several drum sets and band euipment including electric and accoustic guitars and speakers and amplifiers and keyboards and furniture and a commercial size zero turn turn toro diesel mower and several mopeds and electric bikes and motorcycoles and other bies and thosands of doolars of aluminum and copper and brass pipes that was the inventory for making musical chimes and such. Hundreds of items of clothing for disaster victums were thrown in the dumpsrer along with all the files and personal irreplacable thngs that arer so priceless such as titles and receipts and family photographs and heirlooms etc. that went to the landfill, that these vendors had no interest to preserve while being paid perhps three thousand dollars to commit these crimes as subctractors to FIVE BROTHERS MORTGAGE SERVICING AND SECURING, INC
