Also, for a current rent of $1999 and a quote for next year at $2299 what chance is there that I can negotiate $0 increase, $100 increase, $150 increase, etc. [more inside]

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?
