New Landlord wants a year lease
I just finished my one year lease with my landlord and was looking forward to renting month-to-month. He sold the house and the new landlord wants a new lease. She was a bit ellusive saying it was only to spell out rent, etc. When I asked if it would impose a term, she said no, but added if it did, she would prefer year-to-year and not month-to-month. Sounds a bit sneaky to me. What are my rights, if any, in keeping my month-to-month renting? Can I refuse to sign a lease I don't agree to? If I do refuse, can the landlord evict me? Will I have to sign up for another year if that's what the landlord wants?
