A: A landlord has the right to sell the rental dwelling if they wish but they still have to provide at least 24 hours advance notice of their intent to enter to show the dwelling. You do not have to allow any specific showing but are not free to ban all showings. You can require that those that enter be masked and gloved if you wish. Once the property sells, then and only then is the landlord allowed to issue you a 90 day termination of tenancy notice if the buyer certifies that they intend to occupy the dwelling as their primary residence and, of course, you are on a month to month tenancy. Whether you are comfortable affording moving is irrelevant to the landlord's rights. Depending upon where you are, you likely would be entitled to recover relocation assistance payment if it is sold and your tenancy is terminated.
