In my area, a FC will kill a lease. I’ve evicted former tenants many times. The only exception would be if the lease was recorded in the land records prior to the foreclosing DOT, which just doesn’t happen.

In my area, normal eviction procedures would apply. I don’t have to give the former tenant 30 days notice, because they are no longer under a lease. I can give them the same 5 day notice that I would give to a former owner. With that said, I try to be a little understanding with former tenants depending on the situation.
The bank often has the realtor offer cash for keys.In other words if they move within so many days they will give them a certain amount of cash.If they do not move the bank will use that money to kick them out.They need to follow normal eviction rules but a lease is no longer valid upon a foreclosure

the lease does not “go away” when the bank forecloses. that lease is an encumbrance on the property, just like a lien. the bank steps into the shoes of the defaulted owner, and must live up to its obligations under the lease agreement.
with that said, if the lease has gone month-to-month, the bank has a simple solution. give 30 days notice and get tenant out. if tenant does not move, file eviction
