Once the house is sold at foreclosure sale, it is up to the lender as to whether they want to spend the time and money suing you for any deficiency or whether they just let it go.
They legally can, but if they know you don't have any assets and would likely just file bankruptcy if hit with a big judgment, then they likely will just write it off.
Once someone buys it at the foreclosure sale, they will have to ask the court for an eviction judgment and a writ, which will normally take 3-4 weeks after the deed is transferred to the bank or new owner. So you are likely looking at about a month before they could force you to vacate after the foreclosure sale.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time, especially in this tough situation.
