Thank you for your response, I received a letter dated 11-19-10 saying that 'all rents due on this porperty beginning December 1, 2010, must be paid to Lakeside National, LLC at the above address and not to Jemel Willimas or his current property manager. We have the legal authority to collect the rent under an assignment of rents and leases incorroprtated into the mortgage on the property which you are renting because your Landlord is not making his mortage payments to us...." Then on January 3, 2010 (which I think they ment 2011 ) I received a letter stating in part : "This letter is to serve as legalnotice to you tht all current and past due rents due on this property MUST be paid to our Management Company, Hunter Investments, LLC atXXXXX Essex, Md. 21221 as per an agreement stated within the attached "Assignment of Rents and Leases" document. We have the legal authority to collect these rents under the
"Assignment of Rents and Leases" incorporated in the Mortgage on the property which you are renting, because your landlord is not making his morgage payments to us...." this is a month-to-month lease and as stated the papers filed in court said that the house has been forclosured but no new owners have been in contact with us. From what I am sending you it looks like they have the legal right to proceed but I am not sure if the owner of the property is Lakeside National,LLC or Laurens Purchase,LLC there has not been a lease signed by us with this or these companies they seem to be using a lease we had with the pervious landlord, Jamal Williams (no relation.)
