I have lived in my apartment almost 3 months. At 5:30am last week someone started banging on my apartment door - and continued for over 3 hours. It turns out that my landlord was divorced and the wife now owns the property. There is also an agent involved (she actually leased the unit from the ex-husband so in theory she should be getting the rent) and all the parties are fighting over who gets my rent. The police are now involved but since I don't speak nor understand Chinese, I'm not sure exactly what is going on with that. I was informed yesterday that the wife (who now owns the property) wants me to move out. However, she is not willing to reimburse me for any of the expenses I put into the apartment (replaced/repaired some of the plumbing, hired someone to clean up the bug-infested kitchen, dry cleaning of blankets left behind that were filthy and stunk, etc.). She is also not willing to pay my agent fee although I will obviously have to pay one for a new apartment. What rights do I have? Can she just break the lease? And, if so, how much notice is she required to give me? Thanks in advance for any assistance or direction anyone can offer.
