So I am a renter in Snohomish County, And just over a month after moving in we got a notice posted about foreclosure procedures. We immediately notified the Real estate co. which they then stated that it was in process of a loan and it was a normal procedure. 2 months pass and we get another notice that a auction date had been set, And there were default payments. Come to find out that there was never a loan process, but that the owner had indeed filed for bankruptcy and that the whole time that we have resided at the residence no payments that we had made had been applied to loan/house payment.
The real estate co. hasent been helpful with information besides that we can call the number on the notice. And that we are "entitled to our deposit back" but wont say we will get it. Pls helpWe have a year lease that is up in May 2012. Auction date was set to be on Dec. 16, but is delayed due to Bankruptcy proceedings. Do I continue to pay my rent, Do I immediately move even though I wont get my 1600.00 deposit back? Can I sue the homeowner for renting to me after they filed bankruptcy? Thanks for your time.
