Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for using Just Answer.So I can better assist you, can you tell me if you are a month to month tenant, or if you have a written lease?
Rereading your question, it sounds like you have a written lease, since you say it ends in June.New owners assume the lease obligation of the tenants when they purchase the home. The lease is an encumbrance on the property. While a new owner takes on the benefits of the house, they also take on all of the obligations. If the husband tries to sue for eviction, you can raise the defense that you have a lease and he is trying to evict you without cause. I cannot see a judge entering an eviction order. And, he cannot execute "self help" to get you out -e.g., he can't change the locks, cut off utilities, or throw your property out.If you incur damages of any sort from his unlawful eviction, you could actually sue him for damages. Now, if you were a month to month tenant with no lease ("tenancy at will") you could be evicted once given proper notice (usually 30 days).If you need clarification or additional information, please reply and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thank you.
