My husband, myself and our three children rent a 4Br. house in NY state.
We have been renting here since April 1997.
Recently, a man delivered legal papers to the premises which were "Notice
to Quit Premises" papers. Apparently, the landlord (who also lives next
to us) has let the house go into foreclosure. We had no prior knowledge
of this. We have a lease with the Landlord that does not expire until
June 30, 1999.
My questions are:
1. Can the Landlord legally rent this house when the foreclosure has been
pending for over two years (I checked at the local county clerk's)??
2. Do we have any rights that will protect us from eviction??
3. How long do we have before eviction??
4. Will our current lease be upheld by the new owner (currently the bank)??
Would appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.
