I am living in...

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

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Oops due to the forecloser.

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

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!

"I STRIVE FOR FIVE!" My goal is to answer your question to your satisfaction. Please rate with five stars (★★★★★) and click SEND. It does not cost anything extra to rate. You may need to scroll left/right/up/down to see these stars. Rating my answer the bottom two stars or failing to submit the rating reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. If you are not satisfied for whatever reason, or, have follow up questions, please simply reply with SEND before or after rating and let's continue to chat until you are satisfied. This is what I am here for.

What if I want to move out and haven't signed a lease, what kind of notice am I required to
Give

In such a case, thirty days notice.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
