My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
When your lease expired last month with no new lease, you were deemed to have a month to month lease. In most states, this type of lease can be cancelled with 30 days notice regardless of reason. Any improvements you have made to the building are considered to be part of the building if they are fixtures and will remain with the landlord if you are evicted (technically it would not be an eviction unless you refuse to leave the property if given notice). I would contact the new owner and ask he or she if you can negotiate a new lease. As long as rent is being accepted, you do have a month to month lease that can be cancelled pretty easily but you will have notice. Your goodwill is not something you can claim but you can take any personal belongings from the premises unless, like I said, they are fixtures.
