The Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009  protected tenants from eviction due to the foreclosure on the properties they were occupying. These provisions took effect on May 20, 2009, and originally were scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012. However, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) changed the expiration date to December 31, 2014.

 Under this law, the immediate successor in interest of a dwelling or residential real property must provide tenants with a notice to vacate at least 90 days before the effective date of such notice. Now, it is 2015 and there is no protection for theses renters in Florida as the law expired.

Since the foreclosure has been going on for years which is considered an older agreement, ( it takes precedence over the new lease ) that you may have acquired within the last year. If the tenant does not voluntarily leave, the new owner may ask the court to evict you.
