Our landlord lost her home through foreclosure in Oct. 2011. We've been in the home not-paying rent, waiting for someone to tell us something. Recently, the landlord contacted us and said that she got the house back and is demanding rent money as soon as April 1st. We just got the notice at the beginning of the month. We do not fall under rent control, but is she allowed to do that? Do we have rights? The lease also ended in August before the foreclosure, so does the original lease still have any power? The house is an original 3 bedroom but we made the living room a bedroom by putting walls up, she also mentioned something about a building inspector coming next week to inspect the house. Since we had the living room as an extra room the rent was cheaper for everyone, but now she wants usto to pay more because we have to get rid of the 4th tenant. Can she do this? We'd be paying $300 more than we need to.
