Short saled house 1/1/12. B of A refused short sale and put on auction. 1/21/12 sold. We were offered to rent our house of 20 years. Never been late on monthly rent. Payments deposited in corp. bank acct. on the first. Unable to get a response from owner as to if we can stay. E-mails and calls to him for the last month. The lease is up 2/1/13. 20 years and 5 kids lots of stuff to move if they will not renew lease. Plus husband hasn't worked in 2 years and we are taking care of my son who has been very ill and just got out of the hospital. Finances would make it almost impossible to move. We were approved by gov. to check and see if were were eligible in the case against Bank of America. No response from them yet.
