Legal Question

Asked on: 7/03/13, 8:42 pm

In March 2013 I signed a 1 year lease. Sometime in April letters addressed to my landlord were delivered from a Mortgage Co, so googled my address and found that the home I was leasing was in foreclosure and would be auctioned late May. I contacted the reality Company who rudely assured me that the Owner was not losing the house but continued to receive letters. May an appraiser tried opening the door with a key unaware the house had tenants. Again I called the reality company getting the same rude response. June I bought a Money order for rent but did not mail it. The Landlord left a voicemail stating he was not losing the house but if he did his friend would buy it and rent it to me. than I was served a 3 day pay or quit, the fourth day an unlawful detainer-eviction was served. What are my rights? Did my landlord commit fraud renting property he knowingly knew was in foreclosure. The foreclosure Auction is now pending.
