You need to get urgent advice from CAB or Shelter.It is possible that the lender will give you some more time if they know you are seriously attempting to move,but they really just need to sell asap.Ordinarily you could make a claim against the landlord for failure to protect the deposit,but as he will probably be bankrupt this would be a waste of your money and time.I hope you can at least get your deposit returned.If private rentals are now unaffordable in your area have you considered finding lodgings as a short-term solution?
