Landlord Misrepresentation? and realtor harrassment

Posted by Anonymous tenant on August 30, 1996 at 14:16:25:

I recently signed a one year lease for a NYC apartment. I agreed to do
all the painting and spent over 60 hours and a good amount of money
working on it. Only afterwards did I discover that the brownstone was for
sale. I learned this when a real estate agent (a different one than rented
me the apartment) came to the door, demanding to show the apartment. When I
asked her if our lease would be honored if the building was bought,
she avoided my question. Since, she has begun to call freqently demanding
to show the apartment and becoming ruder by the day. I feel that the landlord
should have informed us that the building was for sale but do not know if
he is required to do so. Now, I wonder if our lease will be honored by a
new buyer and to what extent I must give this realty agent access to my
apartment. Her calls every other day and frequent showing are rapidly
becoming an infringment on my privacy. If anyone has delt with a
similar situation or has comments, referrals, information or the like, I
would really appreciate it.
