Moved into a 1 family home-which is owner occupied as well as 2 other roommates on 11-1-05. At the time signed a month to month lease (which I was not given a copy of at this point), only put down 1st & last months rent.
After much proding (we had seen mail come in landlords name from MA foreclosure prevention services), landlord finally admitted to us on 12/14/05 that the home is in fact in foreclosure & they have no intention of saving it.
Can they legally have entered into a rental agreement with us based on the pretense that we were going to have a home to live in for the future. I realize it was only month to month lease but that is very common to have. There was never any mention that she was having financial problems or that it was to that point. Do we have any recourse against her for allowing us to move in there fully knowing that hte home was already in proceedings?
Also, I realize we do not have any legal rights as far as the bank is concerned..but do they need to be made aware that we live there? or at the least, the attorney representing them. I am just wondering about notices & such that we should be given as tenants on the property. thanks!
