A: Hi.

Much, if not the entirety of this matter may have to do with the terms of that agreement. Other than that, existing law may afford tenants some rights and protections against landlords under certain circumstances. An attorney cannot properly answer this question, however, without reading the agreement with your ex and getting more background on your situation.
