You cannot say they have nothing to do with you. Once the property is in their name you have to pay them the rent and the current owner being your landlord will instruct you too and you cannot refuse.
While you are in possession even though your lease has ended you are still able to pay the rent on that lease as a month by month tenant.
As the lease in n=month by month you can give notice and move out at the end of the month.
The agent is the party that is managing it and they have the right to deal with the property. If you have been deal wig with the agent all along it is to the agent you give notice and make sure it is in writing. Until you leave you are liable to pay rent as per the old lease and you have to comply.
