Wow, not good. Is he still holding your security deposit? I would recommend that you hold off paying him any more rent - but you might want to speak to an attorney about that. If you want to give me the address of the property, I can check the title to see who is holding the mortgage - or you can do this yourself as it is public information. Trying to find the right person to speak with at the bank will be challenging, and, once you find out who that is, they may not disclose any information to you as their loan information is confidential. But, you can try. Other than that, I don't know what to recommend. If you do hear back from your Landlord, he can talk to the bank and give you a better idea of how much time you have left there. If you want to break your lease and just leave, I would recommend having the Landlord sign a release (if he ever shows up again). Foreclosure is typically a lengthy process....especially with all of those the banks have to deal with nowadays. Some banks are even pushing off foreclosure and letting properties just sit in limbo because they don't have the staff to address them. Hope this helps a little bit.
