What happens if your former landlord that evicted you in the past buys the current property you live at?

    Pray they have a change of heart leave you along as long as you're paying rent on time minding your business .

    You probably want to move as soon as your lease is up. You don't want to dredge up old problems.

    He becomes your new landlord on the same terms you had with your previous landlord while you have a contract.... so if you are month to month then they give one months notice of any changes, such as notice to leave or an increase of rent

    He honors your original lease until the end of the lease term as required by law. And my crystal ball isn't working so I can't tell you what will happen in the future.

    If you rent and are month to month, the new owner only has to follow state law in giving advance notice if they want you out. If you have a signed lease, the lease must be honored until it expires. Then you can be told to vacate.

    He has to honor your existing lease, but it is very likely that your lease will not be renewed.

    Nothing happens automatically, but they might or might not renew your lease when it ends.

    Nothing probably.

    Your lease remains intact but expect hard feelings and possibly no renewal. And they will probably keep the deposit regardless. (because you owe them from before)

    That landlord must abide by the lease that you currently have. Depending on where you live, he may not be able to kick you out once the notice is up without cause. So don't give him cause. He cannot intermingle any prior debt you may still have with him with your current rent payments. It's unlikely you'll get the benefit of the doubt if you do anything wrong given your history.
