    Unless you live in California, yes legally you are suppose to pay for the rent if you are living in the home. And you are still obligated to give notice, I will assume you gave a full 30 day notice or other if required.

    You should get your deposit back if you leave the home in proper condition and also of course gave proper notice.
    ** sadly if they are losing the home it is likely they don't have the money, did they put the deposit into a separate bank account, many states require that.
