PRLog - Jan. 28, 2014 - ATLANTA -- Just a few years ago, Lisa Jefferson, Broker/Owner of the Atlanta Homebuyers Realty Group, based in Tucker, Georgia never provided tenant related rental services as a part of her company’s daily real estate practices. However, over the last 18 months, Broker, Lisa Jefferson has had to make showing houses for rent a part of her everyday routine because of the demand. Jefferson said "I receive several calls a day from prospective tenants, inquiring about homes for rent in Atlanta".
Due to the high number of foreclosures throughout the Metro Atlanta area, families are now flocking in groves to Luxury Atlanta home rentals, single family homes for rent and apartments. Many of these ex-homeowners have walked away from their homes for various reasons. Lisa Jefferson said, "I sympathize with this new class of renters because their stories are heart wrenching". Many of her clients have lived in big beautiful homes all across the city, but was forced to walk away because of a failed loan modification, a loss job, reduction in income and declining values.
When counseling tenants, the Atlanta Homebuyers Group often warn against landlords who may in fact take advantage of tenants seeking to acquire a new living space. We’re all aware that home owners were not the only group affected by foreclosure. Many landlords and investors have also faced foreclosure, which have left a large percentage of the tenants scrambling to secure other homes for rent.
Over the years, Lisa Jefferson have witnessed several families that were evicted from rental property. The effect on the families were devastating because these families were paying their monthly rental payments to their landlord, but was later served with a notice of eviction from the local sheriff. Currently there are no laws in place that protect the tenant who is wrongfully evicted from a landlord's property, in 2006 Lisa Jefferson produced "Ten Questions You Must Ask the Landlord before Signing the Rental Agreement".
