Hotline Caller Stands Up to Harassing Landlord, Shares Story on TV

Immediately after the home Anthony Moore, his wife, and four kids rent in Bakersfield was foreclosed, Anthony began to get harassed by his new landlord who wanted him out within 3 days. Anthony called Tenants Together's Tenant Foreclosure Hotline and learned that, under the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act, he is entitled to stay in his home until his lease expires next year.

Empowered by this information, Anthony decided to make an example of his new landlord who he suspects is in the business of buying homes at foreclosure and prematurely evicting the tenants. Within a couple of days of calling our hotline, Anthony contacted his local ABC station and got to share his story on the evening news. Check out the video below.
