The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty (Law Center) is collecting information on potential rights violations faced by renters living in foreclosed properties. If you work with clients facing eviction or other issues due to their tenancy in foreclosed properties, the Law Center would like to hear from you.
The Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act (PTFA), provided renters facing eviction due to a foreclosure, a right to remain in their homes for 90 days or through the term of their lease, whichever was greater. In December 2014, PTFA expired and left tenants living in foreclosed properties with very few legal options. NLIHC is working with the Law Center and the National Housing Law Project to restore PTFA and make it permanent.
