I live in a house that is on commercial property. It has

I live in a house that is on commercial property. It has been divided into two apartments and I rent one and my neighbor lives in the other with three children, ages 6, 10, and 13. The landlord we have a lease with is in a legal dispute with the owner financed property owner. In January our landlord stopped paying on the land while still taking our rent. He never spoke to us about this or the fact that he was planning on filing a lawsuit and giving up the property. He continued to take our rent and in March the property owner handed us eviction notices. There is a case in court over the contract on who is the rightful property owner. They are both trying to evict us because we stopped paying rent when we found out he stopped paying on the property. We have been placing rent in an account each month but we have been doing all of the maintenance on the property. My neighbor has no access to her fuse box and the electric is not wired properly and she is losing electric in more and more areas of her home and no one will fix it. Now we have no hot water. She has children and when we notified the lease landlord he responded by having someone serve us eviction papers.
