I'm renting a duplex at the moment, but I'm being forced to leave because my landlord hasn't been paying his mortgage. The house was foreclosed on back in early December, but I've just found out today. We've been here since August, have paid our rent on time, etc. etc.
I am going to speak to a lawyer, but I thought I could get some advice here as well. Do I have any recourse for the rent we've paid? Especially for December, since we paid him even though he no longer owned the property (which obviously we didn't know).
The bank has offered us relocation assistance money if we vacate by February 1st, but I haven't been able to get an answer as to what happens if the other half of the duplex doesn't move out (I'm waiting on a call back right now). Here's the kicker - the other half is owner occupied. Our landlord lives next door.
The entire situation sucks, if anyone can offer any advice or experience I'd really appreciate it.
