    Question Short Changed Due to a Short Sale California

    Iím asking this question on behalf of a friend who he and his son are about to become homeless due to the house from where he was renting a room has been sold.
    He was told it was a short sale, but it could have been a foreclosure, heĎs not too sure of the circumstances, the owner has been less than forthcoming with details.
    He has lived there about two and a half months.
    Around the middle of Auguest he was told he and his son have to be out by the end of the month.
    He did have the water bill in his name, providing proof of residency.
    The owner never gave him a receipt for rent paid.
    Is he entitled to any relocation money ?

    If it was a foreclosure, he may have legal protections under the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. If it was a short sale, his lease remains in effect.

    Thank you for getting back to me.
    I suggested that he speak with an attorney,
    unfortunately thereís no lease. He heard threw the grapevine this guy had a spare bedroom so he took it for him and his son. Here it is the middle of September and he still has a roof over his head,
    ..so far
    Again thank you.
