If you are a tenant in Nassau County or Suffolk County, and you have discovered that the house owned by your landlord, where you reside and where your apartment is, is now in foreclosure, you still have a legal obligation to continue to pay rent. The view of the courts is that the landlord’s finances are none of a tenant’s business. If your landlord wants to take your rent money and go to Disneyland instead of paying the mortgage, that’s his business, and not yours. As long as you live there and the landlord still owns the house, you must pay rent to the landlord. If you don’t pay rent, your landlord can evict you.
