Can the new owner of the rental property I live in kick me out?

The rental property that I'm living in now was sold to a new owner. The new owner wants to kick me out, remodel the unit, and re-rent the unit for a higher price. Is that legal?

Good Morning, Lots of questions on this scenario. Did you have a lease with the prior owner? Was the lease transferred to the new owner? Have you signed a new lease with the new owner? How long have you lived in the property? You need to review your lease and have a nice talk with the new owner. There is a website for renters and their rights. I would educate myself. Yes its very legal

The short answer is yes but are certain legal protections that renters have. Your lease is your first line of protection. Depending on the type of property, its age and local laws you may have additional protections.
