Consult with an attorney about your individual situation and circumstances.
Did you receive notice of the upcoming sheriff sale/auction or has that already taking place.
If the auction took place and the landlord had the highest bid, they should be able give you proof, a
recorded copy of the sheriff deed with the landlord being the party receiving the deed. This would be proof
they retained future ownership. If someone else (most likely their lender) received the Sheriff Deed at auction, the owner has 6 months to redeem the property at the auction sale price plus interest, fees, etc.
Most properties do not get redeem because the Sheriff Deed amount is higher than the property is worth in the current market. You could contact the attorney who is handling the foreclosure process for the lender to
find out the status of this case (if sheriff sale took place, winning bid amount, winning bidder etc.)
Again, consult with an attorney about your individual situation and circumstances.

Renters are getting stuck in this situation a lot these days. If the landlord can redeem the mortgage, you will be fine. But that is not likely.
I would consult an attorney.
There are programs that allow tenants to stay in the house after the foreclosure, but you do have to pay the rent to the bank.
A sherriff's sale does not likely remove your responsibility to pay the rent, though it might not be likely that the landlord will pursue you.
