Are you required to move if your landlord files bankruptcy?
The basic rule is as follows: if your landlord files bankruptcy that is a matter between your landlord and his creditors, not you, the tenant. You are still required to pay rent or be evicted, as long as your landlord has control over the property. This applies to whether the landlord has filed for bankruptcy or if the property is under foreclosure. In either case, if you end up staying on the property, the new landlord will provide further instructions on whether to stay or to move.
