He recently got papers served to him from his mortgage company who is trying to foreclose on the home we live in. <br/>The property is a duplex, landlord on one side, my family on the other. He told us that the bank "was going to foreclose, but he caught up on payments" and that the papers he was served was just basically a formality bc they had started to foreclose before he came current with mortgage payments. Today, we became aware of a letter from the Core Logic Field Services group&nbsp; for a work order on behalf of the mortgage lenders, Wells Fargo and they needed to know who all lived on the property and if it was being rented out to anyone. What is going on? Can he really have made payments and gotten current on the mortgage AFTER he was already being taken to court for foreclosure? If his home is being foreclosed, what is my family's best course of action. We just paid June's rent of 475.00 to him and he assured us all was well. Is he lying?

They said they would put a lock out tag on it until the next tenant made a purchase. When I called a few months later to find out if the account had been closed out yet I was told (by the same person)&nbsp;that it would be the landlord&nbsp;responsibility to&nbsp;reimburse me. I don't understand how it would be his responsibility to do this since the account was in my name with them and&nbsp;I paid&nbsp;them for the fuel and how&nbsp;would he&nbsp;know how much to reimburse me. If I had been told that, I would have taken it up with the landlord when I did my walk through when I moved out. Is there any recourse for me to be refunded my portion? The manager at the propane company told me there was 30% left, which amounts to 150 gallons. With the price of fuel I am owed about $450.00.</div><br \><br \>1 reply Thu, 14 Feb 2013 00:07:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Tenant-Rights/478543/ 2013-02-14T00:07:00Z Can a fanniemae rental agent require us to pay an application fee for the house we are already in? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-a-fanniemae-rental-agent-require-us-to-pay-an-application-fee-for-the-house-we-are-already-in/448043/ The multifamily unit we were living in was foreclosed on. We contacted Fanniemae who&nbsp;referred&nbsp;us to a&nbsp;Realtor&nbsp;who offered us cash for keys. We&nbsp;preferred&nbsp;to pursue renting since we have several months left on our lease. She in turn referred us to a property management agency who requires a 30.00 application fee per adult (two in this case), a&nbsp;credit&nbsp;check, and a criminal background check. We find this to be rather odd since we are already in the unit and have been renting for several years already. None of them seem to acknowledge the Tenant Foreclosure Act and no one wants to answer any question about our current lease. SIDE NOTE: A locksmith sent by the realtor tried to lock us out, threatened to lock us out if we were not at home, and yelled at us calling us squaters. The realtor tried to make it seem as though we were already in the eviction process.<br \><br \>1 reply Sat, 23 Jun 2012 18:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-a-fanniemae-rental-agent-require-us-to-pay-an-application-fee-for-the-house-we-are-already-in/448043/ 2012-06-23T18:06:00Z Unsafe garage door http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Unsafe-garage-door/438632/ My landlord did not have the electronic safety eyes installed correctly, and the garage door came down on something and buckled.
