Based on the reply I received, I need to add more details. There is no clause in the 2-year lease that says the lease is voided if the property is sold. The new owners are buying the house as an investment with full understanding and agreement as part of the purchase that there is a current tenant... Read more »

I have given her thirty days and then sent a notice of failure to return deposit when I hadn’t heard anything. Before I... Read more »
Your contract is with the former owner. You could sue in General Sessions Court for Breach, Conversion, or in certain Counties, violation of Statute. It may not be worth it, but you probably know what Bank he uses to execute a levy.

The land was sold 2 weeks ago and I have had trouble with the new owner every day. He gave me 12 hrs notice that his people were going to throw away anything they wanted on... Read more »
Not sure of your question. But generally Judgments are enforceable for 10 years. Debtors do not go to jail for nonpayment, but can be held in contempt for refusal to disclose employment, cash, land, etc. when asked in discovery.
I allowed a showing yesterday of the house I am renting. I am moving in January when my lease is up and I want to help out the owners. The listing agent has not disclosed in the listing that the home is currently rented so 75% of the showings so far are for people expecting to move in. Yesterday,... Read more »
Talk to your landlord and ask them to deal with the agent. It sounds like the agent considers you a bother. That you want to have privacy and enjoyment of your home is not unreasonable, you are paying rent and are entitled to it. Its possible that your lease covers this situation and that may...Read more »

A written Lease might allow other charges like attorney fees also. The Landlord might have you served prior...Read more »
The terms of the lease would control the issue. Typically landlords run a background check and verify income before renting to someone. But once you're in a lease, unless the terms state differently, they can't then just decide unilaterally to terminate the agreement.
First, I am not a TN lawyer. However, I agree with the previous answer. Usually, an appeal alone does not stop the trial court's judgment nor an enforcement of that judgment. A motion to stay the judgment must be filed, generally requiring a bond. But check your appellate rules as to when a...Read more »
