I agreed to be out of(basically the house is being used to

I agreed to be out of(basically the house is being used to store my mothers stuff-no one is actually living on the property) a property that I have rented on a month to basis after new owners bought it from my mom in February and she passed in April. No contract just a verbal month to month until they found long term tenants. They have now found tenants who are willing to sign a 3 year lease and wanted me out by yesterday. I told them that now I want them to serve me notice. The question is this. I am in california and know how to work the unlawful detainer process through the courts very well and can easily stay at the propert for 9 months to a year or more. Would it be illegal for me to propose that I would be willing to move out now if they paid me X amount of money so that they don't loose the long term leasee and the costs they will incur to start and finish the legal process to evict me?

My spouse and I are going through a foreclosure right now.

My spouse and I are going through a foreclosure right now. The bank has already bought back the property at a auction and gave us our 3 day notice to vacate a couple weeks ago. To avoid an eviction I want to settle with bank and do cash for keys to voluntarily leave the house. My husband will not do that because he still thinks he can get something done and and talking to a different attorney. We have been at different sides of the fence for a year on this house. He wanted to drain us financially to try and save it and I wanted to short sell which he refused to do so a year ago. Now here we are at the end and he still will not let go. Do I have any rights to stop this and settle with the bank without him? I do not want an eviction on my record so I can still rent.We are already renting now. Because I moved out and I let him come with me because we have children. Now I want him to leave and get a divorce and he refuses to leave the house. What are my rights to get him out of the house and my rights on protecting myself on a possible eviction!?

My son and I are renters in good standing in Rehoboth Beach,

Hello! My son and I are renters in good standing in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We signed a new, 2 year lease back in October of 2015, with rent increases, so we thought we were locked in until 10/2017.Just received notice from my landlord that they intend to list and sell the property. There are no amendments or clauses in my lease saying that I have to vacate in any amount of time in the event of the sale. The only Additional Term and Condition reads as follows: "Landlord may chose (sic) to list and property & provide tenant 60 days informative notice."I cannot find any case law that states a new owner could evict me as long as I have a valid lease in good standing. But I'm not sure, and we are stressed out, to say the least! Again, we have always paid rent on time, agreed to an increase after a year, and have a valid lease agreement. What are my options? THANK YOU!

I am a two time veteran.I and my wife has both disabled.We

Hello,My name is***** am a two time veteran.I and my wife has both disabled.We are being forced to give up our house of 17 years for non payment of taxes.WE have finally stopped paying the mortgage payments which we never missed.WE are being closed on $5000.in county taxes.WE have moved out and going to shut off utilities on monday the 6th of June.MY problem is they are saying they want to start working on the property asap. THE only paperwork they have provided is a right to cure default from the the bank, nothing from the court can they force us to turn over the property without legal paper work because we moved out? We are in contact with them and will continue to be. Do i need to give it to them without legal paperwork? Should i tell them no?..... James Hickrod. Thanks

I just got a small house in a County Tax Deed Sale here in

I just got a small house in a County Tax Deed Sale here in So.California. The former owner is still living in the house and is a bit of a horder. The property is 5 acres and filled with old cars, RV's and tons of crap. The county will transfer the deed into my name within the next 30-45 days. I know I can't do much until then but after the deed has been transfered into my name, do I give him a 3 day "Get Out Notice" then show up with a Sherif? Also, what can I do with all his stuff if he can't or won't move it out? Should I go to him now and try "Cash For Keys? I just dont want this guy to trash my new place. He has lived there for many... many... years and simply felt he shouldn't have to pay property taxes. Thanks...Larry
