Julie A. Rice's answer
If you have lease, then you need to read the lease carefully for the terms of your residency to see if this issue is addressed anywhere in the lease. If you do not have a lease and you have been living month to month for a certain payment, then you need to pay that full amount or the landlord can file for an eviction. The landlord should give you written notice in advance of filing for the eviction. In any case, if you can contact the landlord and see if you can't work this out so that you...

Q: Is a lease agreement from a new owner with slightly different terms and conditions legal?

Mr. Robin Mashal's answer
Disclaimer: The materials provided below are informational and should not be relied upon as legal advice.

If you were under a lease with the former landlord, and the lease was unexpired when the new landlord took over, the new landlord is bound by the terms of that lease. Once the former lease expires, however, the lease terms can be negotiated. Be sure to consult your own attorney to protect your legal rights.
