If the house we are renting is in foreclosure but our lease isn’t up for over 3 months, how soon do we have to vacate?

Under 2010 federal law, you have up to the end of your lease to vacate the unit you are renting so long as you are paying its rent even if the home ends up having a new owner which would result in you having a new landlord.
