A: If your landlord has sold the house, you will have to sign a new lease with the new owners since your original lease agreement is with the previous owner. If the new owners do not wish to keep you in the house they will not sign a new lease agreement with you and you will be forced to leave if you refuse to leave. This will have to be done through an eviction.
