Can a landlord break a lease to sell the property?
At the end of May, my wife and I renewed our 12-month lease for the house we're renting in Philadelphia, PA. Today, our landlord informed me that he feels that, for financial reasons, he needs to sell the house. Our landlord is a nice guy, so I don't want things to get ugly, but, at the same time, I have looked over our lease and there's no clause that says that he can terminate the lease in order to sell the property. Are we legally entitled to stay here through the term of our lease? If we do agree to move out early, what kind of consideration/compensation would be fair to expect?
