Legally, you cannot be unleased. Once lease is signed it is binding. If owner sells the house, the new buyer would assume and take over the lease and have to honor it. If the owner wants you out then has to make you an offer. Often the owner would offer a tenant several months of rent to leave, but the decision is the tenant's.You need not leave unless you want to and are compensated! Good luck.

You may send a letter or attempt a conversation by phone, but you want to have a written record for yourself of it as well.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 10 months ago.
If you have possession stay in the premises. If not in the premises, you can pursue a letter and then sue for damages and file in court which may give you possession and damages.
