My home is in foreclosure. The landlord has filed for bankruptcy and I have a huge $7500 deposit. If I move before the home is actually foreclosed, I don't know how I can recover my security...especially if he is in bankruptcy. Is he protected against my deposit claim? If he is not paying the mortgage company, why would he pay me? Yet I am threatened to pay court costs and $600 if I withhold rent to recover the security deposit. He told me he cannot do a short sale and as he is in foreclosure now, he will eventually lose the house. I feel like I am in limbo. Meantime the foreclosure is postponed a few days at a time with people coming to take pictures of the house and peak in my windows. It sucks.
