: We've been living in a residential apartment for 2 years without a lease.
: The woman owning the apartment recently died, so our landlord informed us
: that they (her family) may be selling the building. He says our only assurance
: is that we will get 3 mos notice if the new owner wants us to leave, but
: that he cannot give us a lease since the building is still in the woman's
: name. But he gives us no assurance that once the deed is in his and other
: family members' names that we would get a lease. Do we have any protection,
: or do we have to just get out if the new owners tell us to? We've been paying
: by check, so we do have proof of paying rent. We'd like to stay in this
: apartment and would like to know our rights in this case.

I live in a condo and my landlady is selling. I have a month to month agreement, and have been here for 27 months. The sale of this place is
going on May 15. Today the buyer came here and told me she will be taking possession of the condo on the 15th, which
is not what was told to me by my current landlady and owner. The current owner told me my agreement with her had me covered uyntil June 1, at whcih
time the new owner could give me 30 days to vacate, giving me until July 1 to move. Who is
right, and does the new owner have the right to tell me to leave when she doesn't even own the place?
Please respond, as I will welcome any advice I can get!!
