the house im renting is going to be sold at auction next month i was told i don't have to pay rent


I would consult an attorney about that.  Under the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009, you have rights to stay in the property as long as you have a lease and pay the monthly amount stated in the lease terms.  If you have a valid lease than the new owner has to abide by the lease terms until the lease is up.  So your landlord may change, but your lease is still valid. The only exception I see is that if someone buys the property that is going to occupy the home as an owner occupant then they have to give you a 90 day notice to move out and find a new place to live, but you still pay for the time it takes you to do that.
