Good afternoon. Yes, you will have time after it is sold. You would get a notice to vacate and then if you fail to move, would be evicted. What you do want to be aware of is that if you need additional time, you should start the process now. I am not sure how long and far into the foreclosure process you are but if a sale date is approaching, you may only have a few weeks after that, to vacate the home. If you can not move out now, then you have no choice but to wait but should at least have a place to move to and ready to go, in the next few weeks.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
