    Are you saying that he needs to give you 18 months notice to get out?  If you heard that from your lawyer, you need a different lawyer!


    Oops...perhaps this question is more complicated than I thought. (I used to be a landlord and some tenants are a pain in the butt and think that they can do whatever they want...I thought this might be one of them.)

    The only reason he would need 18 months notification is if there is a lease that stipulates that. If you have retained a lawyer, why not ask him?

    If your landlord sold the property then he has no say in the matter, only the new owner does, but request proof of sale being closed/finalized and if you had a lease hold on to it they must abide by it.

    It depends.  If your lease has already expired, a 30-day written notice may be sufficient for the Landlord to evict you.  However, if you have a longer term lease and free of any cancellation clause therein, you could take him and even the new owner to court.  Hopefully you didn't sign any estoppel certificate prior to their closing of the sale yet.
