A. Dear client if You are still continue paying rent to new landlord then you are protected under the tenancy act. If he deny to take rent then deposits into controller office and send him receipt.try to settle down with discussion and renew your rent agreement with new landlord

A. You're protected under the tenancy act as long as you continue to pay the monthly rent to incoming landlord. If your new landlord refuse to collect rent in hand then send it by money order. If refused to accept MO, deposit it with the rent controller.

File a suit for tenancy declaration and get interim injunction order from court restraining the opposite party landlord from forceful eviction. Landlord cannot evict the tenant without the due course of the law. Once you file the civil suit your tenancy is protected and you cannot be evicted. Beside you are protected under the Adverse possession since you have been residing at the said premises for more than 12 years.

In the meantime send the rent by money order to the new landlord if he refuses to accept the money order you can deposit the rent with Rent Controller. If you do not pay rent then you will loose your defense of a tenant. Call customer care of Vidhikarya for allotting a lawyer for filing a suit for tenancy declaration and deposit of rent.

A. Dear Sir,
You may approach civil court and get stay order on both the persons. Your rights are as follows;
===============================
Dear Sir,
Ordinarily, if your landlord sells the rental property where you live, your lease doesn't end (or “terminate”). Rather, the buyer of the property becomes your new landlord and must comply with both the length and terms of the existing lease.
Likewise, you remain bound by the lease and must perform all your obligations and duties under it, such as paying rent, keeping the premises clean, and not destroying or damaging the property.
If you don’t pay the rent or otherwise comply with the lease terms, the new landlord is entitled to the same remedies that the old landlord (the property seller) had against you. This means the new owner can try to collect whatever you owe or could begin eviction proceedings, just as the old landlord could have.
