Our situation is a tad unique in how my husband and I have

Our situation is a tad unique in how my husband and I have never met the man who owns the home we live in. He lives outside of the US. We were originally going through an agent when we moved into the home 6 years ago. The agent was removed from the equation a few months later and we dealt solely with the landlord via Facebook and E-mail. The agreement, which we have from the landlord in a ton of emails, is that we are renting to own the house, treat the property as our own, and take as long as we need to take over the home. To make a long story short we had a real estate agent come by the house the other day and tell us we have 1 week before he puts the house on the market. Come to find out he already has it in the paper! We never received an email from the landlord prior to this or any other form of communication. We have made all rent payments every month for 6 years. Payments were drafted from our account into his so there is proof. Also, since we have been renting to own we have done quite a bit to the home including replacing the roof, plumbing, replacing floors, replacing appliances, etc, etc. Is the landlord within his rights to get an agent to try to sale the house out from under us?

Second opinion] Utah has a six year statute of limitations

Second opinion] Utah has a six year statute of limitations on a creditor bringing a suit to collect a debt based on a written contract such as a promissory note. So, if a debtor signs a promissory note and secures it with a first trust deed on a piece of real estate, and then at a certain point makes no payment on the note for over six years, what happens in terms of the creditor being able to pursue collection on the debt? How does it affect the first trust deed if at all?
