Do you have a lease...if so you need to continue paying in accordance to the agreement; for any necessary legal advice, consult with an attorney who specilizes in real estate. In addition you may wish to consider looking for a new home...

"Can I stop paying my rent if my landlord is facing foreclosure?

Probably not.

You are not justified in withholding rent that is due “solely” because you received a notice that your landlord is facing foreclosure."

See the link below, but also see an attorney...you MAY have a defense to paying the rent...

As is the case with my Centennial homes and Parker homes and nationally, you are reqired to pay rent as long as you live there.

As long as you live in the house this is your responsibility to pay your rent.
