Q: We have a new owner. Our rent was paid till Aug 1st 2021. The new owner has not sent mailed us a new lease.

New owner calls every day , mostly at non-business hours ( from 9am threw 5pm)

He told my Husband he is going to double our rent from $750 to $1475 plus we will have to pay our own water. I think he wants to split water 3 ways between the 3 units in building. Then owner left message yesterday saying he is giving us 30 days to vacate?!
