You could have asked for a transfer within their corporate holdings prior to the sale. Once the sale is completed, the new owner holds your lease which has been transferred to him. At that point , he and you are bound by the terms of the lease. The prior owner has nothing to do with your lease at that point.
You seem to have several concerns you are giving, but don't really say what the real reason is that you want to move. Is it the repairs that weren't done? Just send a copy of the original letter and request to the new owner so that he could address the problem. Perhaps he wasn't provided with that information at closing. Were these problems that affect habitability such as lack of heat, water, etc? These are serious problems and require immediate attention for which you should call immediately. Were these requests for minor repairs (toilet paper holder fell off, light in hall closet won't work, etc)? These repairs could be put off for a short time and do not affect habitability though they may be inconvenient. Just call and remind them. You must give them the opportunity to take care of the problem.
The manager does have the right to entertain himself in any way he likes on his off time. If the group as a whole was causing a disturbance, you should have called the police and that would have put an end to that.
Just curious - what is really the reason you want to terminate your lease?
