111842f the lease runs with the land not with the owner. Upon purchase the new owner and you are still held to the terms of the lease. That is why when someone purchases investment property they send the seller an estopel letter. This stops them from making a lease after the offer comes in at very favorable rates and terms to a tenant that the new owner would have to honor.
