Good afternoon. Unless your lease specifically allows you to terminate the lease in the event of a sale, the new owners take the property subject to the lease. The sale would not terminate the tenant's rights.

 

 

I hope this has given you information that has been helpful to you. I wish you the best of luck!

 

If you have a follow-up question, please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping others or taking a break.

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.
