I tell all my sellers of rentals - please give a heads up to the tenants that the landlord is selling the property. Its the right thing to do.
With that said, depending how the contract was written, you may get to stay in the property with the new owners as your new landlord, you may have 30 days or 60 days depending how long you have been in the property. I would simply call the owners and ask!!!

You can try calling around to the main property managers and see if they would entertain that option. I would suggest Mission Sands, San Diego Sunset, 710Br, SDVR and see what they recommend. Trevor Pike Coldwell Banker PB ~ Chris Love Office ... more

Hi , my stove was not working called the manager said do we have entry
to your apartment i said yes five days had gone by no stove was fixed .
I had to call and inquire she said we had emergency sorry we could not fix it .
said monday someone will be there in the process of them coming out to my apartment it took three
days for the stove to be fixed but then my oven stopped working, I had to call again she said do i have a right of entry i said yes but she never states when their coming into my home what day or time
so they just pop up when they feel like it . But in the process the maintenance man when he had came over for the three days my daughter was visiting for a few days the maintenance man took upon him self to report that some female was coming out of the guest bedroom and was there every time he was there so the manager asked me if someone or a woman was living here by the name Jasimine i have no idea who that person is , I said to the manager i have a right to have family or friends come to my home if they want to spend the night the can do so , she said well if someone else is living there you a violating
your tenant lease agreement they can only stay 5 days i was informed when i moved in they can not stay more then 9 days , I said no one lives here and that was the end of the conversation but they have been finding ways to harass me they also raised my rent two hundred dollars when my boyfriend had moved in when i adding him to the lease they said he cant be on the lease only as a guest because he does not have garnishable income since he is on social security so your rent it going up $200 hundred dollars if he is going to be living here? is that legal in the state of california in san diego.?

This is a good question and some valuable information below.

As a landlord myself I would not agree to extend on a month to month basis after June 30th. The reason is that the summer months are always better to find a renter that may be willing to pay market value while the cooler months are the opposite.

Let me eloborate. I you have a rental agreement expiring in may need 2-4 weeks to clean and find the next renter. This means your next 1 yr lease may end July 30th the following year.....and Aug 31st the next etc etc. Next thing you know you are trying to rent your property in the dead months of NOV / Dec/ Jan/ Feb when demand may be lower and folks want to negotiate on price and it may be more difficult to find a tenant.

The above is just my 2 cents ........ with vacancy rates so low in SD this should not be such a huge problem right now.....but more of a factor as the market returns to normal.

good luck.
