You are liable under the lease to pay rent. The fact that the house may be in foreclosure does not change that fact.

These are factual issues that we can discuss. If you are interested in pursuing the matter further, I off an initial 1/2 hour consultation without charge. If you want to set an appointment for the initial consultation, feel free to telephone, or email, my office.
