Dear Landlord,
I am writing this letter in response to the notice of termination dated ___________________ that
I received on ____________________________________________________________.
The Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act, (The Act) Pub. L. No. 111-22, §§ 701-704 (2009),
which became law on May 20, 2009, applies to state eviction proceedings. This act requires that
a new owner who took title to residential rental property through foreclosure must honor existing
leases until the end of the lease term.
There are three exceptions to this rule: 1) if there is an existing term lease and the new owner
wants to occupy the foreclosed property as a personal residence before the end of the lease term,
2) if there is an existing term lease with less than 90 days to the end of the lease term, or 3) if the
existing lease on the foreclosed property is a month-to-month tenancy or a tenancy at will. In
each of these cases, the owner must provide the tenant at least 90 days notice to terminate the
tenancy. A copy of The Act is enclosed.
Because the notice sent on _________________does not comply with this law, I ask that you
withdraw the notice and provide written verification of your action.
