rental property change of ownership
I have a lease on a storage unit till 12/16/01. New owners have told me to get my money back from the person I leased it from, and sign a new lease with them for twice the monies. Is my lease still valid till 12/16?

Re: rental property change of ownership
In order to provide competent legal advice an attorney would need to read the lease you state that you have, and perhaps other documents if you have "sublet" the property from someone who originally leased it from the owner. It may require you to pay a relatively modest fee for obtaining this legal advice. As a practical matter, it may be cheaper for you to terminate whatever lease arrangements you have and start over somewhere else. Attorneys may differ on the amount they would charge you, but I would charge an up front retainer fee in the amount of $250.00 to review the necessary documents, interview you and provide you with my legal opinion concerning your legal rights and duties.
