I rent a house and the owner decided to short sale, do i still have to pay rent bec. i made an offer to buy it


I currently rent a house which the owner decided to short sale. And by short sale, the owners stopped paying their mortgage for the last 3 months while i continued to pay my rent to them. I made an offer to purchase the house. With my offer already in place, do I still have to pay the rent while waiting for their lenders decision if they will take my offer?
