Never mind, here's a TU for both of you and let's call it even.....
Dunes, I don't think Tay found any such law. I'm told that in Florida, it is legal to feed a non-indigent squatter to an alligator - provided, of course, that the squatter is free-range, antibiotic-free, and that the alligator is covered by a qualified dental plan.
Perhaps this is what Tay is referring to?
So you ask a question because you don't know, yet you come back on here and pretend to know everything? If you are going to play that game, don't post the question. Last time I checked, this was a real estate website, not a legal advice website. Realtors know about real estate sales, not the legal issues. We aren't licensed to practice law.
In your own answer, you mention, "there is a law that says if you are renting a house you have a mortgage on you have to pay the mortgage and if you don't you can not continue to collect rent!!!"
That may be the case, but that doesn't address your question of whether you still have to pay rent. I think every judge in this country would say that you have a contract, even if not in writing, and you are obligated to pay rent as per the contract. (The court will use your month to month contract and previous months payments to establish that you were acting out a contract.) Perhaps the law you supposedly found was intending for the bank to receive the rent money. If you want to find out who to pay for your contract, perhaps you need to visit an attorney.
By the way, show a little respect for the people who are giving their time to try an assist you, and be careful about who you ask for legal advice.
I would take action to terminate the lease and move out before the sherif starts the eviction process and your credit potentially gets hurt beause of the eviction.
