Tenants complain about a warning to vacate the property to rent it at a higher price

I found out later that this agent had offered the property to another tenant who was willing to pay approximately 20,000 more per year to rent it, but my landlord was unable to evict me because we had already agreed to renew the lease and he was required to give me one year's notice. After we renewed the lease and signed the contract, I received an eviction notice in my email two weeks later.
