**A: what do you want to do? If you want to stay, your only recourse is to write back confirming that you have a 1 year lease and therefore you will remain as tenants. If you do not want to stay, then reply accordlingly, accept the lease termination and prepare to move out in 30 days.
The contract about him selling the property to you is unenforceable since it was not in writing.

There is a 3rd alternative:

You have a valid lease, you can hold the new owner to it, and the new owner gets your security deposit transferred at the closing. Remind both of them about that!

You could stay untill they offer you money to move, that is very legal, so ask for ALL of your security back plus some $$ for moving expenses and you will start looking as soon as you see at least half of the cash in your hands. Or you could use your security for next months rent and then the next month pay no rent in lieu of moving expense, so you will have to move by Oct 31st. Any of this has to be in writing, of course.

So You have plenty of options, it's the landlord that is a hurtin'.

PA Most leases don't allow you to use the Sec. Dep. as rent unless the landlord decides.
