Unless

an

lease,

you

should

notify the new owner in writing that you expect him to honor your current lease. On the other

hand, a tenant can consider the new lease as an offer of a new tenancy and agree to its terms and

conditions by signing the new lease. If signed, the new lease will create a new landlord tenant

relationship. Different rules apply when a property is purchased at a foreclosure sale.

My lease will expire in two months. I want to stay in the same apartment. What should I do?

First, you need to read your lease payingecial attention to paragraphs that discuss

renewal, extension, or expirationof the tenancy. If your le es does not answer your question,

contact your landlord and discussthe matter with him or her. If you and the landlord cannot

reach an agreement on a new lease or an ext ion of your existing lease, you should plan to

move when your lease ends. At the end of the lease term, a landlord can choose not to extend the

existing lease or can offer the tenant a new leaswith different terms, i cluding an increase in

rent.

which rent can be increased. If you remain in your unit after your lease expires, the landlord can

require that you immediately sign anew lease with new terms or vacate. It is best to negotiate

your new lease before your old lease expires.

After my lease expired, the landlord continued to accept my monthly rental payments, what rights do I have?

After expiration of the oldease, if the landlord accepts rent and permits the tenant to

remain, a tenancy-at-will has been created. The rms of the original leae would still apply to

the tenancy except that the landlord can termi eator change the term with a sixty (60) day

notice. The tenant could terminate the lease with a thirty (30) day notice to the landlord.
