Our landlord put the house that we are renting up for calateral on a loan he took out. and lost the house to the bank.They said we have two days to move out or they will put a lock on the door. Can they legally do that without getting something from the court?
If a sheriff's deed has been issued, the new property owner can request a writ to have you and your property removed from home. In addition, it is likely the mortgage signed by your landlord allows the lienholder to secure the property by, among other things, changing the locks. You should call the new owner if you have its contact information to either negotiate a new lease, or see if the new owner will agreed to give you extra time to move out of the home.
I agree with Mr. Wambolt. If the house has already been through a foreclosure, it's likely that your leasehold interest was terminated by court order. Tenants are usually named in foreclosures in Kansas, often as "Unknown Tenant/Occupant." The bank would have to have served you with copies of the initial foreclosure petition. The final order in the foreclosure would terminate any tenant's rights in the property. Once the redemption period has expired the bank can get a writ of assistance from the sheriff to have you removed.
