There is a lot going on here but basically, you are their renter and whatever the status of a pending sale may be, you are obligated to pay them rent. However, if you had continued to pay rent, and you were displaced from the home because of a foreclosure because they stopped paying, then the LL would be liable to you for "skimming". You would have to sue them.
The three day notice doesn't have to be in any specific form. LL's typically create their own.
