Landlords actually have to give you 60 days notice if you have lived there for more than 1 year under the new laws and the state is trying to get a law passed that would for lenders who foreclose on rentals to be required to give the same 60 days notice (as noted HERE); read more HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Landlords can not force you to leave if you have not violated the terms of your lease; they will need to have a court order the eviction and you are entitled to your security deposit, possibly moving fees, and help finding a new place to live. Do not agree to anything unless it is in writing and signed by all parties involved to secure your rights. There are many agencies that can assist you with this issue. There is also the act of rent skimming here that may also help in a civil claim against the landlord; read the law on this HERE.
The fact that this has gone as far as the bank sending a Realtor out could lessen your chances of being allowed to stay, however, you can absolutely hold over until you are told to leave by the Sheriff or the court which could give you more time OR you can request additional time from the bank.......either way you will be forced to move but you also have a very strong civil case against your landlord.
