When you will receive a 5 day notice to vacate the house. If you fail to vacate within the 5 days then the new owner can file an eviction, called a forcible entry and detainer. There will be a hearing within 10-12 days. The notice you received is required for an eviction and once the 5 days have expired and you have not moved, the eviction will be field with the court. The court will enter an order for you to vacate the house within 5 business days after the court hearing. If the foreclosure has gotten to that point, it is very unlikely that there are any defenses as at this point the foreclosure sale has most likely happened. The eviction will go forward just like any other eviction for a landlord and tenant. Here is a link describing that process:
