Our rent is paid in 4 month installments 3 times a year under a lease we believe is protected under the PTFA. Rent was paid shortly before we discovered the foreclosure sale, so 3 months is pre- paid under the lease. Do we have to pay rent again to the new owner for that time period? We filed a notice in the foreclosure action advising everyone of the lease, and the prepaid rent and deposits held. Do we have to pay the deposits again? Florida statutes FS 83.49-7 seems to imply that it is the responsibility of the old landlord to transfer deposits. Since the new owner was well aware of this liability, and had ample opportunity to seek judgement from the mortgagor for these amounts, would he not be assuming the lease (assuming it is protected under the PTFA) with the pre-paid amounts ?
