If you give your address, it would be fairly easy to get that info for you, however, regardless of who owns the property, you as a renter need to pay rent as is your obligation through your lease. If you have a security deposit on the line and the landlord is not cooperating with you regarding their ownership status, then also try calling the housing authority. Good luck.

My recommendation is to do the following:
Send a certified letter to the owner requesting he update you, in writing, of the status of the ownership of the home/ apartment. This serves as a good record for you that you attempted to ascertain ownership.
Then, get a current preliminary title report. Any of us (local Realtors) can get one for you. This will tell you the status of all liens against the property. Your landlord may still own the property, but there may be tax liens, homeowners liens, etc. that put the property in jeopardy of foreclosure.
When a property changes hands, the lease stays with the property. If the property has been sold, and the landlord no longer holds title, you do not owe him rent, but you DO owe rent. Send a certified letter to the current owner to request information on who will be managing the property and collecting rents. That way, you can stay in your home but be assured that every cent you pay will be credited towards your rent, and your credit will stay intact.
Best of luck,

You should get in touch with John below and he can give you the details in less than five minutes.
Also you can call the county accessors office or county records to see if there has been
a change of ownership.
There should have been an auction date and time mentioned on the notice that may have been taped
To your door. If the date has come and gone, it means either the home has been auctioned or the owner has been able to differ the sale.
But be careful with regards to not paying your rent, if the owner reports you, your credit can be ruined if he is still the rightful owner.
If the property has been foreclosed upon and the title has actually transferred back to the lender, then it would be a matter of public record and the change in ownership would be accessible by doing a title search. If you would like to email me the address of the property, I would be happy to look it up for you. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good day!
