I am living in a duplex and never signed a lease. We have heard rumors that our duplex is being foreclosed on. The other two tenants signed leases (month to month) but it has been over a year since they last signed one. What are our rights? Do we have to give a 30day notice if we plan on all moving out, die ri
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Oops due to the forecloser.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: Omaha Nebraska
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. If you never signed a lease, then you are on a month to month lease by default. This means that if the property is foreclosed upon, then the new owner in a foreclosure only has to give you 10 days notice to quit the lease under Nebraska law, I am afraid.

Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved rudeness or wrong information. Please be kind!
