Asked by mfoolad7, Brooklyn, NY • Tue Apr 9, 2013
Just sold my house to an investor buyer who allowed my tenant to stay in the property. She is moving out at the end of this month, and because of this, once she got her deposit back from the property management company I was using, she refused to turn over a new deposit to the buyer. He is now saying that if there is any damage to the house after she leaves, I will owe him the deposit amount. How is this possible?! In the selling contract there was no addendum about a tenant, etc. And if the tenant refuses to pay him a deposit, how can the former owner be held responsible for that? He purchased the home as is...according to him, I am responsible for the condition of the house indefinitely after the close of escrow? I am moving out of state in three weeks and trying to put this behind me. Help!
