However, there are signs you can see to let you know something isn't right. First, ask your landlord. Let your landlord know you have concerns and see what their reaction is when you ask. Second, you can go to your county's GIS or online tax service and see if there has been foreclosure proceedings filed against the property. Third, look for a sheriff to deliver foreclosure papers to the property. This can be a big sign that the property is being foreclosed on. And lastly, hire a lawyer to find out. Many communities have free landlord/tenant services offered through a local law school.
