Miami, FL asked in Foreclosure, Landlord - Tenant and Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Can a Tenant leaving for 10 years in a property in Foreclosure paying association and assessments buy the property?

I have been leaving in my apartment for more that 10 years. I agreed with the owner to pay maintenance and assessments. The owners don't want the property and finally the court set NON-Jury Trial. I have all the documents that prove that I paid everything for this unit. I want to know my chances to buy the property when they will sale it.

A: Anyone can bid it is a public auction; or if seller agrees you can buy via a short sale now. You should hire a lawyer before you do anything to make sure there are no other liens on it and help you with the process.
