Hello, my name is Nic McGrue. I'm a lawyer at Polymath Legal, located in Los Angeles, California. In today's economy, there are many foreclosed homes. Many people like to purchase these homes. But, what happens if you buy a foreclosed home that has a tenant in it? The Keeping Tenants in Foreclosed Homes Act of 2009 has made it more difficult than it used to be. Under this act, the normal thirty day notice period has been extended to ninety days and if the tenant has a lease whose duration has not expired, the tenant's lease cannot be terminated unless the tenant voluntarily terminates the lease. Now, if you have a tenant in your foreclosed home that is on a month to month lease, or whose lease has expired, you must give them ninety days notice of your intent to make them vacate. Once the ninety days notice has passed, they either need to vacate or you can go through an eviction proceeding to finally get rid of them. If you have a tenant whose lease has not expired, there is one way that you may be able to evict them before the full expiration of their lease. If you plan to use the foreclosed home as your primary residence, you can give these tenants ninety days notice to vacate and then you will be able to evict them if they are not moved out within the ninety days. Once again, my name is Nic McGrue and this has been how to get rid of a tenant in a foreclosed home.
