My landlord sold the house i'm in and I want to move before my lease is up. I told my landlord that I was not going to stay in the house I'm renting from him once he sold the property before he sold the property. Wanted to know my rights as tenant in Lincoln Nebraska concerning this matter. I found out he sold the property yesterday which is great news for both of us. But he is angry because i don't want to stay.

The first thing to do is read your lease. If the new buyer is planning to rent it out and not move in, and your lease has a clause that it can be transferred to a new owner then you are obligated to fulfill the term of the lease. If a sale is not addressed by the lease, then it would be subject to local or state laws and could end up in court.

There is nothing that says lease is automatically transferred to new owner

Well first of all...with very few exceptions...the rental agreement transfers to the new owners. This is pretty simple contract law and (generally speaking) even a clause in the contract stating to the contrary is not enforceable unless it is written in favor of the tenant(s). This is pretty standard across the country and I'm unaware of any provision in Nebraska law that is to the contrary. With that said, you are still obligated to the new owner so unless he releases you from the contract, your only recourse would be to break the lease and deal with the potential fallout.

When you say "he" is angry about you not staying, are you referring to the new owner or the old owner? I don't understand why the old owner would care...he sold the house, after all. Can you tell us what contact you have had with the new owner and if you've spoken at all about wanting to leave the home?
