When a property with a tenant is sold, the new owner must disclose to the tenants the new owner's name and address where to pay rent within 15 days of the sale. Failure to do so precludes the owner from evicting for nonpayment of rent until the owner makes the disclosure. This new law comes from Assembly Bill 1953.
