What happens to my security deposit if my rental is foreclosed on?

Question Details:

I just learned that the house that I'm renting is being foreclosed on. I was served 2 weeks ago. I asked the landlord if I could use the deposit for rent this month and just go month-to-month. He said no, and he will start the eviction if I don't pay him today. I have no problem paying him but I want to protect my deposit. What can I do?
