It really Depends on the new landlord and what he or she plans to do....In any case, Legally your new landlord cannot neglect his responsibility to repair and maintain your rental unit as long as you remain there. Still In most parts of California, landlords can end a month-to-month agreement, without reason, by serving a tenant with proper notice.Unless you live in a city that uses rent control. In that case, landlords cannot end most month-to-month tenancies without citing a "just cause" for eviction. Such as nonpayment of rent or unlawful use of the property. Furthermore Tenure in a rental unit affords greater rights then that of a non-rental unit. In this case, Landlords must provide 60 days' written notice to terminate a month-to-month lease agreement granted the tenant has resided in the unit for at least a year or longer than a year. If not, then California law only requires 30 days' notice. This is pretty much the only knowledge that I have pertaining to this issue and I Hope it gives you a little more insight as to what your new landlord can and cannot do. However, I strongly encourage that you consult with an attorney who practices in your state with a focus in Real Estate Law As they are the experts in these kind of matters. Hope this Helps you out a bit.
