Hi, hoping someone can help.
Currently renting a house and have given notice to move out this wk, need a bigger house. So I’m in the middle of moving my stuff to new house and as I was there yesterday I met the previous tenants who were collecting their stuff. As they were leaving one of them said to me, “I hope u are not planning on staying here long term, I do know Nama own this house and it’s only a matter of time before they’ll be knocking on your door.
Ok long story short, the owner of this house had two other houses taken off him about 8 yrs ago. He has since died so his wife renting this house to me.
I’m very confused. Is it possible she could continue renting a house that was repossessed?
The husband’s name is still on the deeds coz I have viewed the folio online.
Surely if Nama take a house off u then they would take your name off the deeds??
I’m now afraid that maybe this is true and I’ve already lost my old house.
I thought about ringing the ‘owner’ of this house and asking her is it possible that his is true, but I’m afraid she will flip over such an accusation and I’ll be left with no house.
I’ve checked the Nama website but this house isn’t listed.
Also there is a mention of a judgement mortgage on the folio, I just don’t know what that means.
Surely it’s illegal to rent a house that Nama have taken?
