My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Pennsylvania.
My landlord recently put the house I currently rent up for sale. He never sent any written notification of this decision, nor has he called about it. I learned of it from my downstairs neighbor when I saw the advertisement on the front of the house.
I understand that, were the house to sell, the new owners are obligated to let me continue living here through the duration of my current lease, but I would rather not stay. The fact that he hasn't informed me of this leads me to believe that I will also not be notified in the event that someone will be coming to view my apartment. I've had other issues with him in the brief time I've lived here - birds nesting in my top floor ceiling (took him 3 months to put decon in to get rid of them), my water-heater breaking my first week in (took him 2 weeks to get a new one) etc.
I have the opportunity to move into another house with a friend and have one month to do so. My lease isn't up until the end of February. I'm wondering what my rights are and what to expect when I notify my landlord that I will be moving out in a month's time. Should I just move out and not notify him and let him evict me when I don't offer November's rent?
