Cash for keys

Cash for keys is a way for homeowners in foreclosure — or for tenants who are victims of foreclosure — to receive cash in exchange for surrendering the keys and vacating. Banks generally reach an agreement with the occupants of a foreclosed home, which stipulates the home will be left in good condition and cleaned. The agreements typically set forth a specific date that the home will be left vacant, including a promise from the occupants that they will not Vandalize the foreclosed-upon home.
