Can property managers threaten to keep my deposit?
Generally, when a landlord sells the rental premises, the obligations under the lease stay in effect. The lease often specifies when the landlord has a right of entry. When the lease doesn't specify the landlord's right of entry, it is typically upon reasonable notice, but does not require the tenant to vacate unless there are safety issues due to repairs. However, since the landlord is not obligated to let you out of your lease early, it is possible the security deposit could be applied to rent due under the lease terms.
