McGuire's bi-partisan foreclosure rescue bill will help Arizona renters

By Kevin Tripp


PHOENIX - Imagine getting kicked out of your home because your landlord did not pay the mortgage.

A bill that just passed the Arizona House with bi-partisan support would require landlords going through foreclosure to give tenants 90 days notice. Representative Barbara McGuire wrote the bill.

"I know of personal friends who were caught up in such a situation that they had three days to move an entire household full of belongings and find another place to live," she said.

And, if a landlord doesn't give that notice, the renter can fight back.

"They'll be able to recoup the monies that they've put out for rental by going to court and suing the landlord to recoup those costs," McGuire said.

The bill will now go to the Senate.
