They just changed the legislature to allow a tenant 60 days to vacate without "penalty" on a bank owned property or foreclosed home that the original owner no longer has interest in. If you were to stay longer than that it could cost you your time, hassles, court, distress, etc. So I would encourage you to be out in sixty days. So sorry. Good luck to you.

I would call the person who sent you the notice. They usually have a firm representing the Lender. Also, an agent may come by and offer you Cash for Keys which means they want to get you out of there with minor damage to the residence. However, these have very short fuses. I would begin shopping in earnest for a new place to live. I'd sue your ex-lanlord for any security deposit. Good luck suing a large lender!! But you DO GET 60 days if you are a tenant in place. I'd make sure I get them a copy of your rental agreement. If you don't have one you are on shaky ground.
Your plight is the plight of thousands of renter who are NOT notified by a landlord who has NOT been making payments on their rentals for months while still charging you rent. They not only fail their obligation to the lender but to you the tenant.

You got served by the banks attorney I'm guessing and the property has already been foreclosed on?? Most likely in 60 days the sheriff will be there with a lock smith. I would find a new place before then. Talk to someone at the bank and see if they will let you rent longer and get everything in writing if they say yes. If you have a place to go sooner maybe see if the new owner will pay you to move out before the 60 days. Put a little extra money in your pocket.
