The landlord can sell the home at any time during the lease, however, the new owners would be buying the home subject to the lease. I advise talking to your landlord about what is happening and seeing what sort of protections they are willing to offer you.
from a leak that happened last year August? My lease is set to renew July 1st. I’ve asked them to repair the damage in my kitchen and they’re ignoring my requests. Instead she wants me gone in 30 days and I’ve been a long time renter for 8 years!!
Unless your lease contains a very unusual renewal provision they are absolutely within their rights to decline to renew the lease. Even with the facts you laid out, I would be very surprised if they would be required to renew your lease.
In NC you can talk to the local housing authority, and as long as you have properly notified your landlord of the issues they can step in. And your landlord is walking a fine line if they try and evict you after you reported issues to them.

Unfortunately, since there is no signed contract, the verbal agreement is not enforceable. Try to work out something with the landlord to get a few more days time in exchange for the time and labor expended cleaning up the house.
Told roommate I was moving out in 10 days, because of the hostile living conditions created by himself and one other roommate. I refused to stay there in those 10 days following because of how intimidating, negative, and all around abusive behavior directed towards me. I am sure it was all for the... Read more »

Insurance is a choice unless the land is mortgaged and then it is normally contractually required. As to who may be responsible, this sounds like you do not have a formal lease in place. I highly recommend having the church sign a formal lease and specifying in that lease the parties'...Read more »
He was wanting to purchase the property and at one time I had considered it but have changed my mind it is the only thing I own. He is aggressive and says we had a verbal agreement. Is that a binding agreement I never gave him exact amount or had it appraised.
I would have to speak with you about what the verbal agreement may have been, but if you want to evict go down to the local magistrate's office and file an eviction. Speak to a local lawyer to get a better answer about the verbal agreement and eviction options.
A North Carolina attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for a week. The most straightforward way is to simply ask your attorney. When I file suit, I give clients a copy of the summons and complaint for their records. Depending on the court system involved, it's possible...Read more »
It depends on your lease, but it definitely sounds like your landlord may be violating your right to quiet enjoyment. Go see a local lawyer and have them review the paperwork and give you their opinion of your options.

Landlord offered to repaint the house which we really appreciated but our family would had to stay in a... Read more »
Without reading your lease and the communication prior to the signing of the lease I cant give an opinion on your options. Take all of the related documents to a local lawyer and they can give you your options.
