We just moved into a house last month with a one year lease and got a notice on the door last night that has to be auctioned off
Do I need to repack and find a new place to move my 6 kids again? And what about the $4600.00 we had to pay to get in will we get any of that back? Or will we be allowed to stay for the lease? It's going to the highest bidder

I'm assuming that the home is being auctioned off in a trustee's foreclosure sale. If so, the law protects renters rights. Review Utah Code 57-1-25 and 57-1-25.5. In short, If the property is sold, you may be allowed to continue to occupy your unit until your agreement expires, or until 45 days after the date you are served with a notice to vacate, whichever is later. If your rental or lease agreement expires after the 45-day period, you may need to provide a copy of your rental or lease agreement to the new owner to prove your right to remain on the property longer than 45 days after the sale of the property.
