Has anyone encountered this situation?

Google "New Jersey Law, Tenant's Rights in Landlord's Bankruptcy"

While New Jersey Law is arcane, at best, in normal circumstances a tenant's right to occupy a leased premises (his or her "leasehold interest") is not extinguished with the bankruptcy of, or foreclosure on, a landlord's leased property, particularly when one has paid one's rent in advance, unless he/she has explicitly agreed to such a provision in the lease agreement beforehand. Examine your lease agreement carefully.
