Hello, The property where I rent my apartment was foreclosed in 2009. IN 2010 I tried to send the lawyers for citimortgage a check for rent but they would not accept it and sent it back so I have been paying my rent to the owner but she hasn't owned the property since 2009. The sheriffs came to evict me but could not due to a mix up with the address numbers.

What is your question? Have the new owners given you a 90-day notice to vacate? You are likely not obligated to continue paying the former owner, but the general rule is that the new owner is only required to give you 90-days notice to vacate (regardless of if you've been paying rent). So, if they've given you that notice and the 90-day period has expired, they can start an unlawful detainer action (which it looks like they did based on the Sheriff showing up), and evict you. I recommend seeing an attorney to determine all of your rights. ------ This information is given for legal education only. It may not work for your specific situation.
