My Landlord Sold the Building. Now What?

in Legal Issues on by
An apartment building goes up for sale after being listed by the landlord.

Whether you love the place you rent or have been toying with the idea of moving for months now, the decision to leave or stay should be your decision. But when rumblings start circulating about a property being sold, tenants get nervous. While the rumors may have no validity, they may be real in the future, so it’s important to know what implications a sale has on your security deposit and lease agreement.

Plain and Simple

Whether you buy a house or apartment building with tenants, the same rules apply. No one is going to throw you out in the street without due process, and if they attempt to do so, there are laws and tenant support agencies in place to protect your rights. Whether you have a long-term lease or a month-to-month rental agreement, the new property owner typically has to agree to those terms. A few states have exceptions to these laws, but most leases and rentals are bound by stipulations that protect tenants.

Carefully Review Your Agreement

Start by digging out your lease agreement and carefully going over each section. It should clearly state that the agreement is binding, which means that neither you nor the landlord (old or new) can alter the monthly rent amount or end date unless the terms are changed and agreed to by both parties in writing. This also means you can’t be evicted unless your rent is unpaid and/or you’ve violated set rules, like altering the interior of your unit in major ways without permission or conducting unlawful activities.

Being Asked to Move

In some cases, the new landlord has plans to convert the building into another type of property altogether, such as condos or a retail business. Sometimes they even plan to demolish the old building to make room for new construction. In these situations, you may be asked to move within a 120-day (four month) grace period. To get you out sooner, the new landlord may offer you incentives like free rent for a month or two or a generous amount of money for relocation expenses. Whether you accept those terms or not is up to you, but think long and hard before you sign anything, because any new agreements will supercede old ones and you’ll be bound by law to comply to them.

New Ownership, New Landlord

While the new owner will likely be your new landlord (unless a property manager is in charge), that shouldn’t affect the terms of your original agreement. Until (and if) you sign a new lease, everything must remain the same until the old one expires. Be prepared if you have a month-to-month agreement, though, as the new owner has the option to change the terms of these quite quickly, including the amount of your monthly rent. Decide ahead of time how much of an increase you can bear and hone your negotiation skills. Above all, be friendly and polite when discussing the new terms.

New Leases

Eventually, your lease will expire. It’s common for new landlords to increase the rent, so again you have to choose the best option for your situation. If the landlord promises new amenities in the building such as upgraded laundry room equipment, more security, covered parking, etc., make sure the new lease includes all those promises in clear, concise writing, including the dates by which they’ll each be completed.

Security Deposits

New ownership should not affect the amount of your security deposit, nor should it have an impact on its return when you vacate the property. The old landlord can return it to you directly or transfer it to the new owner to handle the transaction. In either case, you’re still entitled to an itemized list of any deductions taken. Just make sure to brush up on local laws on what is considered normal wear-and-tear so you are fairly refunded.

Moving Out

You may have loved the old landlord and/or have an instant dislike of the new one. Regardless of your feelings, you are as legally bound as them to uphold your end of the deal. You should still give a minimum 30-day notice before moving out and leave the place in good condition. If your new landlord is eager to get rid of old tenants to bring in new ones at higher rental rates, you may be able to negotiate a deal to reduce your final rent payments in exchange for moving out more quickly.

Prospective New Tenants

When you give notice that you’re moving, the landlord will naturally want to show prospective tenants your apartment or house. The same rules apply to this scenario as they do to contractors entering your home. Ideally, you should be home for such visits for privacy and security reasons, and asked well ahead of time if the visit is convenient for you. If the landlord wants to show the property in your absence, they need your written permission.

A change in rental property ownership doesn’t need to be traumatic. In fact, in some cases it can even be a blessing in disguise. Just brush up on the applicable laws and statutes that govern your city, county, and state, and your problems should be kept to a minimum.

    my apartment lease changed hands 3 times in the 3 years I was there. My new “landlord” who owned the last 3 months of my lease didn’t know I had a security deposit, even though it was on the first page of my lease. I never signed anything with this person. He called me a lier that I had a deposit, so I deducted it from my last rent payment….big mistake now I had to pay him 1700, he got the fair markete value of my lease for a year. he also has 750.00 of my deposit money he is not returning and is now sueing me to replace the carpet in this apartment. he has not done anything to this apartment since I have moved out two months ago and has a new tenant. tenants have no rights in this condo conversion, this guy has ruined my life. and I never made a late rent payment in 3 years, and was a perfect tenant. my advice get out before your unit sells……..I tried to but coudn’t.l

I have till the end of July to be out cause the new owners want to remodel. I have no where to go and no money to do anything with rental prices these days can't get a place temporary to stay in. It seems that older people, mostly women that live alone, get the most shameful situations from others and we are vulnerable to these people who only want to make an extra dollar and more than ever doesn't care who gets hurt. America is becoming a growing greedy country. Anyway if I can find anything to help us I will get back to you. We got to hang in there somehow and I myself am becoming more and more depressed.

Well, everything did not go as planned, and we need to stay at the house longer so we talked to the new onwer and now he wants the rent for May or he wants us to move out. I, explained to him that I could give him the rent for may on the 31st and we could make the payments for june. According to him he wants the rent for may today and we could break up the rent in June into 3 different payments. If I don’t have the money for may right now what should I do?

    I have lived in my aprtment in Colorado for over 10 years. At the time I moved in I paid a 200.00 pet deposit. The property sold in 2003 and all deposits were transpered over but the pet deposit became a pet fee. The property has now been sold again and the new owners want to charge a new pet fee saying that the old fee was not transfered over but kept by the old management company. Can the old management company actually do this? Can the new management company charge us again?

    My apartment complex in Colorado was sold a few months before I moved out on terms of old lease. My roommate worked for the company and they told her they were going to renovate all the apartments when the tenants moved out (this is a mostly college student complex). When we moved out, we were in a very big hurry and didn’t have time to clean the carpets. I now have a bill for $4,000 for replacement of carpet and linoleum. The carpet was new when we moved in and only needed to be cleaned, and they were going to replace the carpet anyway when we moved out. The linoleum is over 5 years old and was in great condition. The only problem area was in one of the bathrooms were it was not sealed to the tub, thus it started to peel away,(we had many verbal and written work orders for this to be fixed and it never was). I was wondering if it is right for them to charge us $2,000 for the carpet and $1,000 for linoleum, when the carpet was being replaced anyway and the linoleum was wear and tear from over 5 years? Please help, this is my first problem. I had no problems with the former complex owners; in fact we had three different apartments with them and no problems.

    Yes. The most important two words relating to your situation are “deposit” and “fee.” During the transition between new management companies and your subsequent new lease renewals it is possible that what was once considered a refundable security deposit to become a non-refundable lease fee. The lease fee would have been paid in conjunction with policies in place by the management company and/or owner at the time of lease inception.

    Your new management company can require a new pet fee to be paid if their policy differs from previous rules.

    On a side note – unless there is a waiting list for apartments in your community, I can’t justify any reason for the current management company to require such strict enforcement. I would try to speak with the property manager and explain your case (if you haven’t already done so). Management changes are common practice in the industry and I imagine they should be able to relate to your situation.

    Are you attempting to move out of the two-bedroom unit that was negotiated at a more favorable rate? If so, then management can require you to repay the special that was given to you over the entire lease term. Most times discounted rates are given off the apartment’s established market rate. This discount is extended in good faith that you will meet all of your lease obligations. If you fail to do so, they most likely have the right to request for you to repay the special you received.

    This is an easy situation to fix! All you have to do is provide a copy of the move-out inspection that you completed with the landlord the day you turned your keys in to them.

    Easy huh?

    I have a feeling that you probably didn’t take the time to complete an inspection of the apartment with the landlord or property manager. In that case they are pretty justified with the charges that you have been assessed. Conversely, the property manager must have a copy of an inspection that was completed when you first moved into the unit. That inspection must be signed by all lease holders and an agent from the office. If they do not have an inspection on file from when you moved in, it is impossible for them to determine that you caused the damages in the unit.

    My parents have been renting in a duplex home for about 14 years. They have gone through 4 different landlords since the time of there residency there. They have recently moved out of that place. There is a lot of wear and tear in that home throughout the time of there stay. Most of the problems they had, they have mention to the previous manager and they have manage to do some of the fixes. This last manager has never done any work in the home since he took over the management. My parents even have problems with him when they’ve tried to inform him about problems in the home and not once have he tried to fix the problems. Not only that this landlord has taken over the lease agreement from the previous manager, therefor my parents have never sign a new lease agreement with him. On the lease agreement it states that the rent is $700 a month. This landlord has raised the rent to $800 that was not under the contract and my parents have been paying that amount since his time of management. Is he allowed to raised the rent when it is not under the lease agreement? Well, now he is trying to sue my parents for repairs in the home a month and half later and there are new tenants already residing in that home. He has never inspected the place since he started management and we are aware that the place is not in good condition but a lot of the fixes were from regular wear and tear that the landlord previously and this latest landlord has neglected to maintain. He states in letter of all the repairs and my parents owe him about $2000 and they have 15 days to make the payment or a claim will be filed against my parents and that they have to pay all the court and lawyer fees that goes along with it. Please help me with some or any advice you can give.

    My landlord and I verbally agreed to a 1 year lease. My landlord is the owner of the home I rent and is now going to sell the property. I recently noticed on the written agreement, that the terms are month to month. Once the property is sold and I have a new landlord, is the new landlord bound to the verbal agreement?

    i live in michigan, in my rented duplex and have lived here for 3 years. about 7 months or more ago my landlord sold the property to his dad. our lease with our landlord had expired and our new landlord hasnt made a new lease or month to month contract or anything on paper at all stating how much rent is,late charges or anything. he hasnt even done a walk through of the house before he bought it. my family and i are planning on moving out in 3 months. i guess my question is on my worries on when we move out. there were damages to the duplex when we moved in and neither the landlord or i filled out anything saying what those damages were. since that i have had burn holes in the carpet that were here when we moved in start pulling up and over time it has caused small strips of missing carpet. do we have to pay for that? also the other damages that we cant prove didnt come from us will we have to pay for those? he is also telling us we owe $10. per day if we are late on rent. what are our rights since our lease with our old landlord had been expired for over a year when our new landlord bought this place? also we know nothing about whats going on with our $550. security deposit. what are we legally responsible for in our move?

    With having a “fixed term lease” @ one (1) year.
    The owner/landlord has sold the apartment building
    to the city, and within (6) six months the selling of the property will be final.
    I paid a total of 3500.00 to move in (9) months ago 2250.00 being the deposit. it has been mentioned that
    the city wants everyone out upon taking over the property,Do I have to leave without my 2250.00 deposit? but it is also said that they will pay anyone still living in the units to relocate.
    Does this mean that I would only get what they want to give and not my deposit? and do I have to except there offer? my lease will be up in 3 months and I was going to go to month to month is this allowed? or do I have to move when offered?
    Please help with any advice you can offer.

    This is almost exactly what happened to me less than 3 months ago. My building was purchased by a college who wanted to turn it into a dormitory. However I was under a lease agreement. Many of the other tenants had lived there so long that they had gone on to month-to-month and had no lease. The school on the day of the closing hand delivered those tenants without a lease a letter stating they had 30 days to move, and offering them a deal to relocate sooner, that would include certain moving expenses. My situation however is like yours, I still had 5 months on my lease and a deposit to consider. They have to give you your deposit back, that simple, unless they have a valid reason (i.e. damage to the aptmt, etc) not to, and they have to give you that reason in WRITING. As far as relocating, that would be up to them and what they are willing to offer you. They should tell you if they are wanting to make a deal to pay you to end your lease sooner move out — which should include your deposit. You do not have to move when offered. Your lease protects you against it — unless your old landlord included a clause against new ownership (which is unlikely). Check your lease, it should say something about if the building is sold the lease will transition over with no change or need for anything in writing.

They pay nothing in rent and the current property may go into forclosure if he can’t sell it before that happens. What would the bank do if they take over the place, I’m sure they would’n’t want people living on their land for free. If anyone has any answers please help

    On February 15, 2011, I signed a one-year lease. I agreed to and paid one months’ security deposit at that time. In June 2011, I was laid off and informed my landlord of the situation. I struggled to make ends meet, but I did not violate my lease and only once (November 2011) did I make a barely late payment. In December 2011, the landlord informed me that the property would be sold and asked me to move into a different unit that she owns. When she showed me the apartment, she asked me to move on February 1, 2012, and stated that my security deposit would be carried over if there were no damages, and I would just be responsible for paying the slightly higher rent. Because of my financial situation, I knew it would be the most affordable option and made preparations to move. The landlord then sent me a letter saying I would be responsible for a new two months security deposit due on February 1, 2012. At that point, I had no other viable choice, and agreed to the terms. The landlord thanked me for the excellent condition in which I left her property, and told me that my original security deposit would be credited to my account within 30 days, the amount covering all but $20 of one month’s rent. Unfortunately, due to my financial situation, I could not cover the two months’ security plus first month’s rent on February 1st. She agreed to a payment arrangement of 6 equal payments (in addition to monthly rent) and has issued a notice to vacate upon any missed payment. I have made the first 3 payments as well as a separate payment to cover March’s rent. At this point, she has received more than the equivalent of one month’s rent in addition to all due rent for February and March.
    We renewed the lease – literally hand writing the new address, effective dates and dollar amounts on the old lease – which made sense to me since I am not a new tenant and have been in good standing with the landlord.
    I have recently found that Pennsylvania law allows a landlord to hold only one month security deposit for the 2nd year of a lease, and would like to request that the payment agreement and notice to vacate be destroyed as they were not lawful – requiring 2 months security in the 2nd year of a lease – and have caused undue hardship. I can’t sleep, my relationship is suffering because I am so miserable, and I am going out of my mind trying to find *legal* ways to come up with payments that total nearly double my monthly income.
    How do I ask her to do this?

Your suggestions are very true and real. I have seen similar information at one place, you can also see on oneciti.co.nz.

    My building was sold and it was done very sneaky and dirty. Now me and another tenant are being we gota move because the want to renovate the 1 entrance side. They did not give us no option for anything. I got a 60 day notice they call it, which isnt no good. Its only a piece of paper. Could we get some help?

    If the landlord sells the property before the end of lease then he or she must ensure that the buyer agrees to continue the existing rental agreement.

    What happens if your landlord has a potential buyer, but says (over the phone) that I have to move, or else they won't buy it!!~ 😪😪 can they do this? I'm on a Month to month lease. Been here for 9b years.

    My building was sold right when my lease expires, end of September. Under the old lease, I did not pay a security deposit just a move-in fee. My new landlord wants me to pay a security deposit and sign a new lease. I understand signing a new lease but does she have the right to request a security deposit and I have been here a year?
