Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Hmm...it is a tough situation. I presume you have a written lease. Does it have automatic renewal? Also, what does the owner have to say about it? Does the owner still want to rent to you?
Hi Karina: The lease contract is between you and the owner of the unit. The unit owner does not have to renew a lease unless there was already an agreement to do so. If the unit owner wants to lease it to you, the unit owner should make the argument to the association based on the rules of the association. Possibly you can have the owner talk to the association; or explain to the association your intent to buy the townhouse. I know this is not quite want you want to hear but it is better to know your standing than not know it. We can continue to discuss if you want to do so.
Hello Karina: Just following up. I know my answer was not exactly what you wanted to hear. But is it better to know what is expected in this situation. If you are satisfied with your answer, please provide a positive rating between 3 and 5 stars for the service I provided to you. If you have a follow up question, just let me know.
Hi Karina: It is always good to have a consultation with a local attorney in the area. The attorney can also help contact management to attempt to work this out and take further legal action if necessary.
