Tenant with a lease. Sheriff sale posted. What are my rights? Do I have to pay the rent?

Highspire, PA |

I have a lease and the sheriff taped notice on door today. The lease expires at the end of July and this sale will take place July 15.

You have the right to stay until the end of your lease. Even if the sale divested your lease, they could not get you evicted in less than 45 days.You do owe rent to the LL. I'd pay 1/2 month since in the middle of the month there will be a new owner.
