Me and my girlfriend signed a lease for 2 years and gave $4k deposit. After 1 year we broke up and she moved out. The landlord wanted me to stay so he lowered the rent but did not change the contract. My contract still states $3300 but I have been paying $2000 but the property foreclosed a month ago.
The new owner (bank) gave me a notice to vacate in 90 days and is asking for me to prove with 6 last rent checks that I lived here. They have my contract but want my rent checks.
1. Do I need to provide my rent checks to the bank since they have my signed lease?
2. Can they make me pay my old rent amount $3300?
3 Can I stay till the end of my lease or I should move in 90 days?

Under Federal law you are entitled to stay for the duration of your lease unless the new owner wants to occupy the property. They have to honor the $2000 agreement modifying the written lease. Do not move.
