cash for keys is a program that pays tenants (me in this case) to move out so they can sell the home. aparently they only give you 30 days to move and the money. i was reading on some websites & some consider me a "squatter". this is determined because i was "scammed" by someone who previously owned the home but no longer had ownership and has been charging me rent and the house has been going through foreclosure. the bank now has put the home on the market for sale as of 7-3-09 and real-esate agents have been coming to show the home not aware of my tenacy. today the bank sent out someone to explain what was going on and that this happens alot in my area. she said to give her a call and the bank would offer me money to move in a timely fashion if the house is clean. i havent signed anything or given her any information. im trying to find out if i deny the cash for keys and just dont contact them with any of my personal information will they just throw me out? or will they have to go through an eviction process? i do have a lease and i have reciepts and its clear to the bank and to anyone else that this isnt my fault so what are the laws defending me?
aparently cash for keys is giving to renters to move out and fast and leave the place nice so the bank doesnt have to pay for it being cleaned and have to go through a lenghty eviction process.
also i read that if i dont accept the money they have to give me a 90 day notice to vacate and if i ignore it they have to start the eviction process.
how true is all of this? what should i do? should i contact a lawyer!?
ALSO TO ADD TO THIS AWFUL SITUATUION I AM 25 WEEKS PREGNANT AND IM DU EIN OCTOBER, IVE SET UP THE BABY'S ROOM AND ETC. I DO NOT WANT TO MOVE. I PAY MY RENT!! IS THERE A WAY TO FIGHT THIS OR GET LONGER TIME? OR AT LEAST FINISH THE WHOLE LEASE OUT?
im not a squatter. i didnt break in. i have a lease and ive been here over 2 months. im so sad this is happening i just really want to know whats the process for them to put me out or can i fight this?
also here's a website i read about tenates living in foreclosed homes but im not sure if it applies to me.
