Help Request- Just received a Estoppel after landlord sold condo I’m living in

So we just signed a lease and after a short time, the landlord sold our condo to someone. It’s been extremely stressful (and expensive) and no one will fix the AC (we live in Florida, it’s constantly 80 degrees and it’s not even that hot outside yet), so after consulting our lease, we decided to move.

Our lease was pretty unclear about whether we had to stay the whole year or if there would be any repercussions. There is a clause referring to “Default/Remedies, part II Chapter 83, entitled Florida Residential Landlord and Tenant Act.” The final page for “Early Termination Fee/Liquidated Damages Addendum” has a box checked stating “I do not agree to liquidated damages or an early termination fee, and I acknowledge that the landlord may seek damages as provided by law.”

I notify the landlord of our intention to leave a week ago. Today I see an email asking to come over to “look at the thermostat” again and that there was something they wanted us to sign tonight stating we’re aware of the sale. So that happens and I’m reading through it and there’s a clause that “The tenant’s obligation to pay rent shall continue through the Term Expiration”

I’m told the buyer is an attorney. I’d love some advice.
