Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be gad to assist.

No term of your lease can be changed unless it is by mutual agreement OR unless the lease says the landlord has the right to change this particular term (or any term) without your agreement. So, look ar your lease and see what it says.

The fact that new management took over doesn't affect your lease.....the new management company would be bound by the same rules.
