9th Circuit: PTFA Does Not Provide a Private Right of Action

Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009 (“PTFA”), Pub. L. No. 111-22, § 701–04, 123 Stat. 1632, 1660–62 (2009), requires purchasers of a foreclosed property to give tenants a minimum of 90 days notice before evicting them. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal held: PTFA does not, implicitly or explicitly, evince a congressional intent to create a private right of action.
