I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Can you explain a little more about your situation? What are you trying to accomplish?
There is no federal rent skimming statute. Landlord/tenant issues are handled by the states. There is also nothing in Kentucky law that prohibits renting while a property is in foreclosure. Until the minute a property is foreclosed, it belongs to the landlord, and they're allowed to rent it out (because, theoretically, they could pay the past due balance or sell the house and avoid foreclosure at any time).
But I'd need more information on your situation to go over what your options might be.
