of course she misled me!!!!! she had the house up for sale at the same time she rented the apt. to me! & when i found out thru another tenant the they were trying to sell the house, my ll's husband denied it to me, until one day i got a phone call then a termination notice.
i am not concerned about moving, my whole point is that she did not disclose that she had the house up for sale to me or the realty that found me the apt. then my ll told me to buy rugs (because of the downstairs tenant), i had to buy a fridge....and to top it all off, I WAS concerned when she handed me a month to month lease and asked her why and then she told me that she always gave them (to the 3 other tenants in the house who have lived there for 3, 7 & 8 years) AND i did check with those tenants to make sure! so basically, she definately misled me and did not want me to know that she had the house up for sale...or else why would i rent it?

: I don't understand why you thnk she rented to you under false pretenses. What did she pretend? Did you ask her if the building was for sale? The sale of a building does not autonatically mean that the tenants must move; that is subject to negotiation between buyer and seller. And new owners must still honor the terms of a fixed term lease.

: You signed a rental agreement that was a month to month agreement which allows the tenancy to be teminated on thirty days notice regardless of the reason. If you were concerned about moving, you should have asked for and gotten a fixed term lease.

: I understand that this is incredibly inconvenient and costly for you, but unless this landlord misled you in some way, she has delivered what you paid for - a month to month tenancy with all the risks that attend to that status.
