Yes, if you are receiving value for the money you owe. You may have to sue to get your deposit returned. I would talk openly with the landlord.

Stop paying the rent. That is the only way for you to redeem your deposit. Or you could sue the person you rented from to get your deposit back. But at this point since the place is being foreclosed on, what you are paying isn't going to cover the owner's rent. So stop paying.

Secondly, who ever becomes the new owner will have to ask you to live or process eviction paper work to get you out. They will give you a 30 day notice. They will not be able to give you a 3 day notice. Right now, they are working on a bill to allow tenants of foreclosed properties to stay for at least 3 months. But nothing has gone threw yet.

A sheriff just can't show up at your door just because some one wants you out of a place. There is a process.

Good luck to you.
