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:
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!

Here’s the 2012 Round Up of concerts beginning July 11th:
BREA’S Wednesday evening concerts begin at 6:30 at City Hall Park, 401 S. Brea Blvd. Bring your blanket, chairs & desire to kick-back and enjoy the experience.
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 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:
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.]]>
That’s right, have a FREE stack of hot and fluffy pancakes and make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network.
The photo on the right is one I took last year at the event in Placentia, (Orange Co.) CA. This one included 2 young local beauty queens, Katie (clutching her CHOCO Bear) who was a cancer patient and treated at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Also included is Katie’s big brother Kyle and the Placentia store manager who made everyone feel right at home.
So…if you’re available on Tuesday, February 28th, head on over to your local IHOP (check locations here) have a few pancakes and make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Netowork Chairities! And more good news, when you make a donation it stays in your local community.
Oh and one more thing, leave your server a nice tip (even though you’re not charged for the pancakes) they will be working hard and deserve it!
**There is a limit of one free short stack per guest. The offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last and is not valid with any other offer, special coupon or discount
My company Preferred Home Brokers has been a support local charities including American Cancer Society – 24 Hour Cancer Relay for Life in Brea and CHOC, Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

The “weather” dividend as it’s also known has come and in someways gone (imho) over the years along with the inflated home prices for our (mostly) postage stamp size lots right along with our traffic clogging freeways. Yet seeing the sunny skies of Southern Cal has got to be appealing to those in the frozen tundra of the east this time of year. I can only imagine what it must be like to shovel your way out of the house vs. saying “please pass me the sunscreen Wilma…”
Those of us who’ve lived here all our lives at times take our “winter weather” for granted, yep when it gets down below the 60′s during the day we think we’re freezing, yet that’s almost balmy in Chicago for Jan. And believe me I know that after visiting the Windy City in early Jan. a couple of years back locals were boasting about sunshine and 37 degree temps!
So I guess only time will tell if the 2012 real estate market will be much different from 2010 and 2011 which reflected relatively similar numbers for home prices and sales according to the data from the So Cal Multiple Listing Service (one of the largest real estate data bases in the country).
Now for me personally, even though selling So Cal real estate for living has been my livelihood for decades, I think we have more than enough people here right now, I’d just like a few more them to be buying homes at this point. So if you’re interested contact me, Lynda@PreferreHomeBrokers.com. However if you’re making the trek out west to the left-coast and need a great (rather immodest) REALTOR, you can contact me too. My company is Preferred Home Brokers and we’ve been representing home buyers and sellers in SoCal communities now for decades in Southern California, the land of sunshine among other things.
So I guess only time will tell if the 2012 real estate market will be much different from 2010 and 2011 which had relatively similar numbers according to the data from the So Cal Multiple Listing Service (one of the largest real estate data bases in the country). Until then…enjoy the weather wherever you are!
