My aunts house was foreclosed on. She cannot find a home to rent and needs another 30 days to get situated. She's received the court subpoena taped to her door and has reached out to the new owner but to no avail. What are her rights beyond this?
With the foreclosure she has lost the right to possession of her former home. And since she had a lot of notice that she was going to lose the property, she should have been looking for alternate housing long before now.
That said, she has probably received an 'unlawful detainer' which is an eviction document. She needs to show up in that court on that day - doing so should give her an extra ten days to move, if she doesn't show up she could find the locks changed the afternoon of court or the next day. sometimes telling the judge that she has a place and the date she can move in will delay the new owner's getting possession until then.
