    Florida Home Rental Concerns

    Iím thinking about renting a house in the Florida area. My concern is that a lot of the houses are going into foreclosure because the owners donít want to continue to pay on an upside-down mortgage. Iím concerned about a home going into foreclosure right up under us resulting in us having to go through the process of relocating. Is there anything we can do to prevent this from happening to us once weíve signed our lease especially if weíre making payments on time?

    On May 20, 2009, President Obama signed the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009 which states that a lease will survive a foreclosure and tenants could stay until the end of a lease.
