Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
I am not permitted to tell JustAnswer.com what to do in their specific situation or list all of the legal rights that might potential apply in any specific situation, as such legal advice can only be provided by your local attorney, upon review of your entire case.
I can however, provide you with a general answer, if you have a legal question for me?
Thank you for your follow up.
While I cannot comment on your specific case, generally, as long as, the rental property is owned by the current owner, the tenant would owe rent to the current owner, regardless of the owner's situation with the mortgage company.
However, if the landlord fails to make necessary repair to the rental property within reasonable time from a written request by the tenant, then tenant can file a lawsuit against the owner / landlord for breach of lease based on the implied warranty of habitability and once the case if filed, then tenant will be able to deposit rent payments into court's registry, until the matter is heard and resolved by the judge.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
