West Virginia Establishes Rights for Tenants in Foreclosed Properties


On March 15, West Virginia enacted House Bill 3177, which will permit the owner of a residential rental property purchased at foreclosure to terminate an existing tenancy after giving the tenant 90 days notice, or not less than 30 days notice before the expiration of the lease, whichever is shorter. Tenants with month-to-month leases need only be provided with 30 days notice. The law details the content and method of delivery for the notices. The new provisions take effect January 1, 2013.
