Depending on the situation I would contact the TRUSTEE asap and try to come to an agreement. Technically they can put you out at any time. So you haven't been served with eviction paper work yet?: You should of already of called an attorney in regards to your problem. Considering the ownership has already exchanged hands the new owner has right to legal possession. Please re post what you uncover I would be interested in seeing if a 90 days rule applies to your situation.

1. Contact the Trustee or court to see how far along the home is in the sale process.

2. Find out whether the trustee or new owner have filed court papers asking for an eviction.

3. Determine whether there is a flaw in the legal proceedings that will delay the trustee's or new owner's right to legal possession.

Investigating these issue will permit you to inhabit the property as long as possible so you can save money for your next residence.

There is not a set answer to this question, that is at the discretion of the trustee. However, you should move should plan to move out as soon a possible as they can evict you at any time.

The sheriff will be conning to evict very soon. I recommend moving yesterday. You don't want your stuff tossed on the street.
