Help? Do I Need to Move From My Apartment?

Did you receive a notice about foreclosure for your landlord? What do you do? Do you move from your apartment or rental house? The answer...stay put and keep paying rent but ask the mortgage company to let you know if a foreclosure is about to happen. If your apartment or rental home does get foreclosed, the bank will let you know and they should give you at least 30 days to move or perhaps the new owners will continue to rent to you. You might even get some free rent because you won't have to pay rent to the bank after a foreclosure.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the federal law meant to keep debt collectors in line, was passed in 1978 - decades before the internet and social media sites were invented and a huge part of our daily lives. The law does not specifically address what the "dos and don'ts" of using Facebook, Twitter, or other sites to locate and contact people.
