I believe there is a lawyer service where you can phone one Wednesday night per month and you can talk to a lawyer for free. Google it. (For example, you can ask if there is any way you can take your security deposit back from your landlord and put it in an escrow account, so that you will not lose it, if your landlord goes into foreclosure or declares bankruptcy? If you are concerned about that happening).
(Let me know if you need an explanation of an escrow acc't).
Your security deposit will be transfered to the new owners at the closing (if it sells)
Some banks offer CASH FOR KEYS which is a program to help renters of foreclosed properties to find new housing... They give you first and last months rent or a set amount to get you out of the building and into another one.
If you need help locating a new rental contact me anytime!!!
