Foreclosure and Tenant Rights:

“I just found out that my landlord has been foreclosed on, and the condo I’ve rented for nearly six years will soon be sold at auction. My landlord is unresponsive and I haven’t received any official notice other that what I have found in public records. No one, including the lender or the owner or the trustee, has reached out to me to tell me what’s going on. The auction is scheduled within a few weeks. As a tenant, what are my rights if the place is sold? Can someone come in and change the locks? I am not in a position to move right now. Any advice?”
