Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Yes, when a rented property changes ownership, the new owner takes it subject to all the existing tenancies that are in effect at the time.

.

They don't get to cancel a lease simply because they bought the building and they just become the new landlord..

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...

.

.

thanks

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.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
