I want to let you know that this just happened to one of my rental listings in South Beach… exact same scenario.. and this “realtor-scam artist” got 4 different tenants to give him security deposit and he gave them keys to the apartment… when at the end, no lease had gone through me nor was I aware of this… CRAZY!! The guy who did this calls himself “christian or chris” and he is french.. any idea what the guy who did this in your apartment’s name was??

THIS IS UNBELIEVEABLE AND HOPEFULLY THIS GUY WILL GET CAUGHT!!

This gets lower than low.

That’s a totally different scam where the actual owner figures he can get some rental income before they take the house from him. Lis Pendens (the first legal step in a foreclosure) are easily found online here so a pending foreclosure should not be that difficult to discover. It’s a shame that tenants have to add this to the list of things they have to look out for though. Big shame.

What’s worse is that the lady is pregnant. I hope they get this scoundrel and throw him in jail. I’m still a bit in shock about the whole thing.

I had a call a little while ago from a tenant who found out the house they’ve been renting for the past 3 months is in foreclosure…the sheriff came and posted a notice on the house. The owner is nowhere to be found. So, even if the one renting the house out is the true owner, one STILL needs to be wary. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to check to see if an owner’s mortgage is paid up to date, as delinquencies aren’t recorded until the foreclosure actually happens.

When I was a renter, I was the one who got checked out. I never once thought I’d have to check out the people I rented from. The world has changed. Maggie, you were right to post this. I hope you save someone else the heartache.
