  • Owner didn't pay mortgage, house accioned Hawaii

    Aloha friends!

    Please help me (us) out here. I'm one of five tenants living at a beautiful (but neglected) house. We all have month to month leases. When faced with foreclosure last year, the owner brought in a real estate agent lady to manage the house and get him out of trouble. She found a buyer for the property and fix the situation with the bank while the house was being transfered to the new owner. Unfortunately, the sale didn't go through and the house was placed to be action. Meantime, the owner demanded approx. have of the rent moneys for "making the mortgage payment" but never did. The other half went to pay utilities. The house finally was action on 07/10/09. We all talked to the real estate agent and she arranged for the services to be transferred on her name so we don't get those disconnected. We are also to pay rent to the new owner (a well known bank) for now. The problem is the ex-owner wants to stay living in the house for free and has announced that his girlfriend and her daughter are moving into the house as of July 1st as well. We are all outraged to hear this. He's not just refusing to pay utilities as we all do but also he wants to bring two more people into the house to live here indefinitely (since they just got evicted from somewhere in California). He also thinks he is entitled to the rent moneys until the bank takes over. Furthermore he is extremely rude to everyone, he is very filthy and screams and verbally abuses at some of the tenants. He also flattened the tires of all the vehicles in the house in one occasion, excepting his own moped. We don't know what to do fast enough so the girlfriend doesn't move in and he moves out. The title is not in his name any longer, but the agent haven't got a copy of the new one yet. How can we handle this? They both claim that they are the owners of the house and according to him "a bunch of women aren't gonna tell him what to do with his life". Help please? Thanks so very much!!!

    I don't know why you posted this in the employment law forum, since it has nothing to do with employment law. I suggest you repost it in the Real Estate Law forum elsewhere on this site.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Since it appears that the OP has taken Patty's advice, I'm going to lock this thread so that all answers appear in one place.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
