HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardUnfortunately, yes. They have no contract with you. I suggest, you can contact the previous owners and ask for payment based on the rent for the residence as agreed to by the work you did. But the current owner has no legal obligation to you unless the sales contract included all current tenants who are paid through a certain date.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
