Are you a military tenant whose landlord is facing foreclosure?

 

 If so here are some important things for you to know from Naval Base San Diego:

 

1.      While some local districts may require longer notice, NEW California law requires 60 day notice of eviction.

 

2.     Military tenants displaced from leased or rental properties due to landlord forclosure may be eligible for transportation of household goods.  Contact PSD and keep all paperwork pertaining to the foreclosure.  Changes in this policy are  retroactive to July 30, 2008.

3.     Relief may be sought through the Service Members Relief Act to delay court proceedings.  Check with Navy Legal to get more information.

4.     Service Members may be approached by a third party offering “cash for keys”, which is an attempt to get the Service Member to leave earlier than the required 60 days notice.  The tenant now has the so called upper hand and can negotiate a more appropriate deal for leaving early or waving any part of the 60 day notice.

5.     If you are going to rent, check out the property records to see if a notice of default has been issued for the property.  This will help avoid unnecessary problems as a notice of default is a precursor for foreclosure.

6.     All Members and their dependents should seek assistance from their local Navy Legal Office if they are facing this problem.
