We rent a home in FL with a lease ending 6/31. We received a summons as tenants in possession of the property giving us 20 days to file a written notice of claim against the property as the property is in foreclosure. The server stated the notice would keep us in the loop and give us more warning to vacate. Our lease is thru a prop. mgr. Although the homeowner began short sale procedures in Oct., she has not been honest re: foreclosure status. The prop. mgr. states that we still owe her rent through the end of our lease. She encouraged us to move into another of her properties, then she would release us from our current lease.
1) What is the purpose of the written response/what should it include?
2) What is our financial obligation to our lease?
3) What is the time frame for vacating after receiving this notice?
