We moved into this home in March. At the end of March we recieved notice of auction on the front door. We will willing to work with her and she said she would give us all our money back except the first month. At the end of April we were having problems with all of our plumbing in our home. Nothing was flushing so we called her and she told us to call a plumber, so we did. They came out and snaked it but nothing and they wanted to jet it but she told them " i dont want to put money into a house that im not going to endup owning any longer". We called a septic company ( we paid for) to check the septic tank and its full. Needless to say the cap under the house is off so that we can flush our toilets. The fumes are reallybad now and I have 2 kids and no money to move. What re my options?
The fact that the landlord is losing the property to foreclosure does not relieve them of their obligations to provide a habitable home. If you are injured or damaged by it, you could sue the owner in court. However, if the owner is losing the home to foreclosure, that is usually a sign they are having financial problems, consequently suing them may be a waste of time as they may be judgment proof.
It is probably time to start looking to move. Not the answer you wanted, but probably the "safest" for your family, and the best in the long run.
Do not make a decision that could impact your income on a quick internet question, and quick answer. You should fully discuss with an attorney before proceeding.
