Without Just Cause: A 50-State Review of the (Lack of) Rights of Tenants in Foreclosure
Renters most often have very different rights and responsibilities in a foreclosure than homeowners. An initial survey of the different state treatments of renters in foreclosure by the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) revealed significant differences among states and the need for considerable education on the issue.

To begin to bridge this information gap, the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty (NLCHP), working in collaboration with NLIHC, completed a more thorough survey of the laws of the 50 states and the District of Columbia regarding the rights of tenants living in properties subject to foreclosure. NLCHP recruited WilmerHale to provide pro bono legal assistance to assist in carrying out this work. (Authors)
