The increase in foreclosures has caused the need for some statutes to be clarified that were enacted in 2010 to deal with the issue.

A new law, sponsored by Rep. Peggy Scott (R-Andover) and Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria), clarifies situations addressed in a 2010 law related to property that is being rented out, with a lease, at the time of a foreclosure. The new language makes clear that the statute is about eviction action directed at residential property or a dwelling.

The provisions relate to foreclosures on or before Dec. 31, 2012. The law takes effect May 25, 2011.
