If you own the land and were paying a mortgage which is being foreclosed on, the bank will become the owner and has the right to make you vacate the property (unless the bank wants to lease the land to you).  If someone else is the owner of the land that is being foreclosed on the bank may make you leave after your lease expires.  I would need to know more facts to better answer the question, however, the bank is allowed to take property if the mortgage is not paid.
