Delaware County Landlord Tenant Attorney Discusses Leases
This legal question was provided by Avvo.com. You can view the original question here.
I am renting a house and I have a 1-year lease. I have been there only 3 months and my landlord put the house up for sale. If the house sells before my leases ends, can I stay for the duration of my lease?
As an experienced Delaware County Landlord Tenant Attorney, I often handle these types of matters. Generally, the tenant has the right to remain in the property for the duration of the lease term. However, if you have a written lease you should check to see if it contemplates a sale of the property. Standard form leases usually have a clause allowing the landlord to terminate the lease with written notice if the property is sold.
