New Foreclosure Rights in Federal Law

The President signed into a law a bill (Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act)that provides protection for tenants living in foreclosed buildings .

These provisions immediately went into effect and are “self-executing,” so no federal agency is responsible for making them work.  It is up to advocates to make sure that tenants, landlords, public housing authorities, courts, the legal community, and others involved in the foreclosure process are aware of these new rights for tenants.
