Contractual protection for renters in a house that might be sold?

We're interested in renting a small house in CA as our primary residence. We're suspicious that the owners/agents are just trying to wait out the market before selling. Is there any meaningful protection that guarantees a minimum stay in the property that can be put into a rental contract/lease, irrespective of whether the owners receive an offer on the house?

Perpetual Direct Debit?

13 months ago I signed a 12 month contract for martial arts tuition, for payment to be directly debited from my bank account fortnightly. About 6 months ago I moved cities, and hence was no longer able to continue with the lessons. Knowing that I signed a contract for 12 months I figured that I should honour it despite having no way of actually using the service I was paying for. The period of the contract I signed has now lapsed, and yet the money is still coming out of my account... [more inside]

[bait and switch filter] I purchased a washer and dryer last weekend, but have heard back that, due to a mistake on their end, the wrong price was quoted and is now $300 higher. Should we cover their cost and pay more, or argue that they must honor their guaranteed written estimate, which we've already paid? [more inside]

what are the rules regarding hiring foreign contract workers who work at home?

What are the legal/tax issues involved in an US-based company hiring European individuals to do contract work at home (things like translating documents; the person hired would never need to leave their home country). From the standpoint of the US-based business, it is simply a matter of sending a 1099 like any other contract work? Is there anything else to consider?

Guy B does work under Guy A's contract

A contractor I hired set up a number of sub-contracts with individuals- over 500 of them- each of whom received a background check to make sure they were OK to work in a very public program. We discovered that Guy A had a different person (Guy B) fill out all the paperwork to participate. The contract is in Guy B's name, with all his information except the phone number for Guy A. We accepted Guy B into the program, Guy A did the work, and now Guy A wants to be paid. Do we owe him anything? [more inside]
