Je suis désolé de lear sur votre situation. Pouvez-vous s'il vous plaît me dire si vous avez actuellement un contrat de bail , ou , vous êtes sur un mois en mois verbale louer ?
Si vous êtes sur un bail verbal, alors que vous avez à la fois avoir un contrat de location , et si oui, at-elle avoir une clause de renouvellement automatique ?

Thank you.
Okay, I understand then, that this is a year lease which is RENEWED every year.
Did they have the right to ask all tenant of the 40 building to go out?
Or rather, they do, once the tenant's lease ends.
The new owner steps into the shoes of the old owner as the landlord, with the same duties and rights. Just like the new landlord did not have to renew the lease, the new landlord does not have to do so, either.
So they cannot simply make every one leave arbitrarily. However, they can decide NOT TO RENEW the lease with each tenant, which effectively ens the tenancy for tenants one by one.
Ok, je comprends donc que cela est un bail de l'année qui est renouvelée chaque année.
Ont-ils le droit de demander à tous les locataires de l'immeuble 40 de sortir?
Ou plutôt, ils le font, une fois le bail du locataire se termine.
Le nouveau propriétaire prend la place de l'ancien propriétaire que le propriétaire, avec les mêmes droits et devoirs. Tout comme le nouveau propriétaire n'a pas eu à renouveler le bail, le nouveau propriétaire n'a pas à le faire, que ce soit.
Donc, ils ne peuvent pas tout simplement faire tout un laisser arbitrairement. Cependant, ils peuvent décider de ne pas renouveler le bail avec chaque locataire, qui ens efficacement le bail pour les locataires, un par un.
