Tenant’s Rights In Foreclosed Homes 2-Minute Real Estate Video

August 26th, 2012 · No Comments

When it comes to living in SoCal for amost anywhere or that matter protecting the rights of tenants in foreclosed properties is an issue that’s become prevelant in today’s real estate. This could impact renters in homes that are currently in the process of foreclosure or  homes which have already been taken back (foreclosed on) by the lender.

There are many times that honest tenants have been bamboozled (obviously been mislead) by owners of residential properties that have been in foreclosure and/or on the verge of the lender/bank taking the home back. Meaning they may even have recently rented a property, (another ongoing scam)  signed a lease for a period of time, paid their rent/lease payments only to find mortgage holder (the lender) came knocking at the door!

And if that’s the case, what’s a tenant to do? Take a quick look at this 2-Minute Real Estate Video to learn more about tenants rights and the Federal Law more commonly known Title VII Protecting Tenants Rights AT Foreclosed ACT.


A Bona fide lease of tenancy – for purposes of this section:

  • the mortgagor or the child, spouse, or parent of the mortgagor under the contras is not the tenant:
  • the lease or tenancy was the result of an arms-length transaction
  • and the lease or tenancy requires the receipt of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property or the unit’s rent is reduced or subsidized due to a Federal, State or Local subsidy.

Please keep in mind this is a Federal law and there are some exclusions! CHECK WITH THE PROPER PROFESSIONAL for additionals laws in your state!

BREA 24 Hour Cancer Relay For Life 2012

June 12th, 2012 · No Comments

Once again the football field and track at the beautiful campus of Brea-Olinda High School in Brea will play host to the 2012 Brea 24 HR Cancer Relay for Life June 23rd & 24th.

The event and  activies will take place on the football field, surrounded by the “state of the art” sport track at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday 6/23 at  the Wildcat Stadium just east of the 57 freeway and north of Lambert Rd. The event is primarily volunteer driven and celebrates the lives of the survivors and also remembers who who have lost their lives to the disease.

Brea’s Relay For Life like others kicks off at 10:oo a.m. with the Survivors Lap,  young (age 7 & up)and old (photo at right) in their colorful purple shirts all are invited to particpate in the inspring lap. During the next 24 hours each participating team has at least one member of the team on the track through out the event, the entire 24 hours. Teams are usually comprised of family, friends, co-workers, civic groups all of which agree to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Some are in costume and some participate is “speciality” laps just to keep it more entertaining. Some teams set up their own little fundraiser bake sales, candy sales, white elephant trinkets that go on during the day.

Throughout the even you can count of a lively day of fun and entertainment that takes place by a long list of volunteers with singing, dancing, games etc.  At dusk the mood changes with a moving event by hearing from a local family that has been touched by the awful disease. Afterward participants take to the track for the “luminarious” and a walk round the track in silence remembering those who’ve lost their lives to cancer.

This is the 4th  year for our team Ohana Aloha, we participated and raised funds that go the the American Cancer Society. It’s always been an enthustiac and energetic group. Many of the participants camp out over night for the entire 24 hour period. And then others like me, go home for a few winks around 10:00 p.m. and then show up again for the 4:00 a.m. shift (to do laps) while others get some sleep. As a participant I’ve visited other 24 HR Relays that have taken place in other cities and they are always a special event!

So if you can, join us you can contact me directly or go to our web page for our team Ohana Aloha and sign up!

The traveling Wall That Heals has made it’s way to the Tri-City Park area of Placentia, Brea and Fullerton. The park itself is located within the three cities al playing host to the 5-day event.

The event is a way for Americans to show their gratitude and appreciation for those who have served and payed the ultimate price for our freedom today. The traveling wall is a half scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., with over 58,000 names of men and women that travels from place to place in hopes that many will have the viewing experience.  The public is invited to visit the Wall and honors those who gave their all and we are honored as local communities to have this event in our own backyard.

The Wall was escorted  on Tuesday March 13, to Tri-City Park (on Kramer S. of Imperial Hwy.) in Placentia. The video showcases the escort of the massive truck transporting the wall itself.  The opening ceremony took place the following day with many on hand at the park.

Other events include:

  • A POW MIA Candle Light Event, Friday March 17 at 7:00 p.m. (rain or shine) and the public is welcome, this is also a family event.
  • The closing ceremony is Sunday March 18th at noon. Flag presentations to all flag donors at closing.

This is a FREE event to attend 24 hours a day. FREE parking is also available.

Please take the time to visit remembering those who’ve served.
