My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
Here is my situation:
I have been renting a house for over 7 years now and about 2 years ago the owner of the property was no longer fit to control thier properties/estate. The state of California took over the property and gave control of to a property managment company. The owners estate is in the court system to determine what will happen with it.
I mostly had verbal agreements with the original owner - our terms were - as long as I took care of the house, yard work and minor repairs, she would not touch the rent unless I moved out. I kept up my end and sent her rent regularly and kept my end of the repairs. ALL WAS GREAT!
Since the property managment took over, they gave us a renewable max lease of 1 year, they did minor repairs and they raise the rent annually. I have talked to them on several occations regarding my original agreements with the owner and they don't care about it unless I had it in writing from the original owner. I just want things back to original and don't want the rent increases.
What can I do to keep my terms as I had with original owner?
What happens when the owners passes? Does the home get sold? Do they keep it and pass the money on to the estate?
Can I buy this property now?
I appreciate any help on this. Thank you
