Thanks for your question.
No, an amended lease is not issued if there is a change in the landlord.
Consult the lease, it may state that the landlord should give you formal notice of any change of landlord, and really as a matter of good practice you would expect them to regardless of whether they are actually obligated to under the lease. If they have not then it's not really a breach that entitles you to any particular amount of damages, but it does obviously provide you with a defence in the event that rent is inadvertently paid to the old landlord and the current landlord seeks to enforce their apparent rent arrears against you.
