I rented this place in August '09 as a month - to - month . I was contacted by the HOS in July of last year that I had to start paying the rent to them since the owner was no longer paying them . So I did . Yesterday I received a notice that the place was sold in a Trustee Sale last month . They are asking me to surrender the premises immediately . I don't have an active lease , although I do have receipts of my payments to the HOS . How much notice to vacate are they required to give me ? I contacted the number on the notice and tried to obtain information . I was told that if I provide them with a copy of my lease & payment receipts they could tell me what they expect for rent and such . Should I provide them this information ?
