On 10/13/2019 at 6:20 AM, Heidi Beauchemin said: There has been no new written rental agreement between current tenants and new property owners/landlord. Are you being sued for rent due after the new landlord bought the property? It sounds as if you had an agreement with the old landlord for rent abatement while the property was for sale if you allowed prospective buyers access. Then the property was sold. So it sounds as if there is no need to show the property to prospective buyers. Therefore, the rent abatement should have ended. Am I understanding the facts correctly?
