The Real Deal Miami

Renters of foreclosed homes kicked out with little warning

Miami’s rental-centric market has some of the most frequent violations
of the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. The law holds that
tenants who have leases for properties that are in foreclosure have the
right to remain in their homes until the end of the term of the lease.
The only exception is if the buyer of the foreclosed property chooses
to make the home his or her primary residence. In such cases, tenants
still have to receive a 90-day notice to vacate. The law, however, is
frequently being flouted, according to Purvi Shah, an attorney at
Florida Legal Services. [Palm Beach Post]
