: I live in NYS. My landlord has split with his wife and lives in the upstairs apartment and
: has given me written notice that we have to move out in 60 days as he is
: giving the house to his wife as part of the divorce settlement. We are in the
: middle of a 15 month lease and do not want to move until we have saved enough
: money to buy home. Do we have any legal ground. If not, what good is a lease
: if the tenant is the only one bound by it?

The new owner (i.e., the former wife) is the new landlord and bound by
an exisiting lease.
