You should be careful about paying rent to the rental office instead of the owner. They may be claiming that rent needs to be paid to them because the owner has not been paying condo dues. There may be other reasons for such as the condo conversion failed and the entire property is under the control of a bankruptcy trustee. I am just guessing possibilities. You should contact the rental office and request specific information detailing why payments should be made to them and not the owner. You should also contact the owner for written permission to begin making payments to the office staff. If you have a few months left on your lease, your lease will probably end before the condo is sold in a court auction. Foreclosure sales are taking much longer these days.
