If there has been a foreclosure sale where title to your home is no longer in your name but rather in the name of the buyer of the property at auction, you no longer own the home and have no legal right to possess it.

As such, the new owner has the legal right to give you 24 hours to vacate the unit under the laws of all states in this country.
