The short answer is NO. You must continue to pay your rent as you would
if you hadn't received this notice. As of right now if you was to move
out and not continue to pay rent the landlord could serve you with an
eviction notice. Until the actual trustee sale you and the landlord are
still in a contract. The owner can come in anytime prior to this sale
and get caught up with the payments and the sale never takes place.
it may be unethical for this situation to take place currently there is
no legislation to prevent this from happening. The main thing is to
make sure who is holding your deposits and are they safe. If you are
working with a property management company and they have your deposits
you are usually going to get these returned. If you are renting
directly from the landlord and they have your deposits it will be more
difficult to get them returned.
