I have rented a house from a lawyer who denied any foreclosure proceedings on the property. After signing a lease, it was found that the house was actually the subject of a judicial foreclosure - one that has been settled with a judgement against my landlord (the lawyer). I have documentation, first of his blatant denial of the foreclosure proceedings, which happened numerous times, over a period of months. This individual has also told my new landlords - the bank who foreclosed - that I never paid rent, although I have receipts from his office, as well as bank images of his having cashed the payments for rent. Whether it is important or not, when the lease was tendered, he did use his title, Esquire, as well as his status of attorney as part of the reason we should rent from him.
