Q: the property has not been sold as of yet due to covid -19. However I have been told by a property rental agent that

A: If you are not comfortable with the situation, give notice, and move. 30 days is pretty standard. Tell LL to take last month out of the security deposit. Ask for a Pre-move out inspection by LL to go over what repairs he believes are needed. BTW- you are absolutely entitled to have the LL give you WRITTEN notice of your right to a pre move out inspection, if he doesn't, he may not be able to charge you for cleaning apartment. I discussed the other concerns in response to the first time you asked this question.
