There are local laws that impact landlord and tenant relationships, in addition to state laws, but, in general, a tenant has no options and no recourse (except to sue their landlord who obviously has no money!) when the landlord's property goes into foreclosure. This is one of the many tragic situations that can result from the struggling economy--renters have actually come home to find their possessions on the street. Your best bet as a renter is to communicate and maintain a good relationship with the owner of the property, and if the property is on the market, talk to the owner about the situation he/she is in--what happens to the landlord can affect the tenants as well.

Good answers by my colleagues-- it also depends on the LOCATION of the house. Where is it? My guess is that you are in kendall or south miami, maybe further south towards the redlands. If you are doing the conversion to prepare the house for sale, then you may want to rethink it. Some people want a garage, and will be disappointed when they see that there isn't one. Others are specifically looking for that third bed/bath. If you are selling, my recommendation is LEAVE IT ALONE, and let the future buyer have the options to do their own conversion exactly the way they want to . Most buyers I work with would rather have that than to pay the extra price for a house that has been converted, but necessarily to their liking.
You are going to shell out a fair amount of money, live with construction dust and interruption, and may not get dollar for dollar back what you put into it. Also, you are losing valuable time in a depreciating market. If you want to sell, clean up the house, make it look, feel and smell as inviting as possible, and get on the market NOW.

It would help to know a living area of your townhome but I would say $1250-$1500 based on current listings.
