I am a 50 year old professional whom had not planned on being uprooted so soon, owner gave no indication of selling the house so soon when I signed lease.Needless to say I don't want to be in limbo I want to move on with my life so I immediately started searching for a new rentalif I can find something just as nice in the same price range I am thinking to break my lease do I have any legal fight w/this issue? what shall I do
