My landlord is being foreclosed on. Questions as tenant, as prospective buyer.

I found out recently the house in Minneapolis I'm renting a room in is being foreclosed on. Will I be in a bind trying to sublease my room 8 months down the road? What can I do to ensure I don't lose my security deposit? Should I consider buying this place? Full story and additional questions inside. Thanks for any help. [more inside]

What are our rights, what should our strategy be? We've never owned a house before - help! [more inside]

Help me understand quit claim deeds, why they are so prevalent in this particular heavily-foreclosed-upon Washington state neighborhood I am researching, and some other fishy data I have uncovered. [more inside]
