I have two evictions this same year. My situation is different than most people. Both rentals are in the same area only seconds away from each other. To make a long story short. After two years of living in one house right at the end of our second year lease the sheriff shows up at our door with a foreclosure notice for the owner and tells us we must move or face eviction. We found the other place through a property management company, signed a lease with this company. The owner was there the day we were moving in and canceled his lease, fired him and wrote up a new lease because they said they wanted all of there money. Again the sheriff same thing different address, what we found out is that the owners were pocketing the money and had not paid the mortgage in a year. Now here I am with two evictions and you know the rest. I am lookin for a 4 to 5 bedroom 2.5 to 3 bathroom split level in the High Point, Jamestown, Greensboro area that would not mind renting to a Army veteran with a family, regardless of credit history please reply to wogr@live.com.
Thank You and God Bless

Sounds like a rough ride, with dead beat landlords. A notice to vacate the premise would have no reflection on your previous tenancy. Effectively, the landlord breached the agreement.

Neither of those were "evictions", if you have the funds for first(maybe last too) and deposit(usually equal to a months rent) then you should have no problems with renting appropriate housing.

Both situations sound a bit strange, the "Sheriff" can't do anything until a court has placed an eviction order against the tenant, and for that the property owner must file the proper papers to the court.

When a property has been foreclosed all bets are off, it belongs to the bank. If the property is investment property occupants must leave, nothing strange about it.

The Sherriff doesn't come out and tell you move or you are being evicted.

The occupants don't have to leave, they must be LEGALLY evicted from the property.

This use to be the case. Note below.

This is part right in reading. The Sheriff in an eviction. Will remove you from the property under court order. They may leave notice before then as in foreclosures notices. Most are mailed. Upon eviction day they wake you up get you dress and escort you out of the property. The owner can not enter in most cases for ten days. Most landlords will give time during this period to remove your items.

The new law
In May 2009, Congress passed the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act, Public Law 111-22. This law provided important new protections for tenants when their rental property is sold at foreclosure.

Tenants in foreclosed properties must be given at least 90 days' written notice to vacate by the new owner, and if a tenant has a valid lease, the new owner must honor the term of that lease unless the owner intends to personally occupy the property. Where the new owner intends to occupy, the tenant is still entitled to a 90-day notice.

To fall under these protections, however, the tenant must be "bona fide."

Having done many rental evictions and Bank Forclosures (from notice to Auction of property) In many cases today. Banks are retaining management companies to try to keep tenants in properties (rental). Investment properties sell better if the new owner already has tenants.

Yes sir,

Everything went according to the law. I was just making a long story short.

I owe a complex, because I broke a lease early. I have been able to rent twice since then. The first time through a private landlord (I verified that he was the owner) the second time through a leasing agent. Its a recession - people understand. I usually start looking on Craigslist first, and if the owner/leasing agency is going to be difficult to rent from, than its usually evident in their add. They will have a long list of requirements and stipulations. Those are the ones who will be inflexible.

check the Broadstone Village neighborhood in High Point (on the edge of Jamestown off of Dillon Rd). There are a number of for rent houses in that neighborhood that would probably fit your requirements.
