Q: I am renting a home and the landlord want to sell. What rights do I have during this pandemic?
I’ve been living in for 2 1/2 years with my 14 year old daughter. Last month I reported to the landlord of the leaks in the bathroom. As a retaliation he wants to sell the home. I am currently on Noha who pays my rent.
A: While prohibited for a while during the pandemic, currently landlord's are allowed to give a tenant a 90 day written notice terminating their tenancy if they sell the dwelling to a buyer who intends to occupy it as their primary residence. They cannot issue the notice until they have accepted a buyer's offer and provide the tenant with a copy of the sale paperwork.
