Renters Caught in Foreclosure Trap

Posted Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Landlords expect tenants to take care of their property, keep the noise down and pay the rent on time. But some renters do all that and still get kicked out. It's an under-reported consequence of the foreclosure crisis. Frequently renters are forced to move because lenders have foreclosed on their landlords and sometimes the first warning they get is an eviction notice saying they have to be out in three days. What can renters do about it? Find out on 90.3's The Sound of Ideas tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.

Additional Audio

ideastream®’s Paul Cox talked with Deborah Jones of Cleveland who was twice forced to move out when a lender foreclosed on her landlord.
