A process server came to my door Dec 13 naming me as Jane Doe in a foreclosure process, Sarasota County, Florida. I have tried to contact the bank to make rent payments to them as I was advised by an attorney to discontinue rent payments to my landlord. The attorney representing the bank said it is a process and it takes 90 days or more and I can stay in the house.
The landlord is now threatening me because it is Jan 8th and I have not paid the rent. He is denying the foreclosure and sent me this email this AM, " I'm
Still the legal owner of the house and will be in 1years time it is not for
sale nor will be your lease is up you got the occupancy you paid for ,DO not
even think of being difficult."
Can the landlord evict me for nonpayment of rent if the house is going through foreclosure? The 20 days time limit for answering the lawsuit to the court have passed. Also my neighbor told me the landlord is in the US illegally(without a green card) does illegal immigrant status effect his rights as property owner?
