Mr. Ely i have paided more then I want to say
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
Thank you.
I am sorry for asking all this information, but it was needed to understand your situation.
It SOUNDS like the owner simply let you live there without paying, OR, you are living there by invitation of someone who is a tenant, but that tenant did not have the right to ask you to also live with them.
IF YOU WERE LIVING THERE AT OWNER'S INVITATION
If so, someone in your situation is known as "tenant at sufferance." If so, then the landlord can ask you to LEAVE by giving you a notice. If you have lived there a year or longer, the notice has to be for 60 days. Otherwise, it can be shorter. And I am afraid that there is nothing one can do to stay longer, because the landlord can EVICT any tenant at sufferance after proper notice.
IF YOU WERE LIVING THERE AT TENANT'S INVITATION
If so, then someone in your situation is an "unauthorized occupant." As such, the tenant or the landlord can ask you to leave.
I am afraid that there is little one can do to prolong the stay, aside from stretching out the eviction process - see here.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I want to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Gentle Reminder: Use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please rate when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of the top three faces/stars and then SUBMIT, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars or failing to submit the rating does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith.

Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
Yes. It sounds like someone invited you to live with them. Is this not what happened?
OR, are you PAYING someone to live there, meaning you are a proper TENANT, and if so, WHEN does the written lease run out or is it a VERBAL lease?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hello,
Okay. So someone filled your name into a lease for a property. I understand.
Now you are being evicted, correct? Based on this lease.
What is the formal reason for the notice to leave - nonpayment? End of lease? Or, something else?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.
I am using the term "eviction" to mean in general BOTH (a) the landlord sending a notice to quit, AND, (b) the actual eviction process.
What you have received is is a NOTICE TO QUIT, which is saying: "You are a tenant, but I, the landlord, am asking you to leave and if you do not, I will file an eviction."
If there is a lease with your name on it, then perhaps you did not pay rent? Or otherwise breach the lease. If you never signed that lease, then you are a "tenant at sufferance," and the landlord still has the right to ask you to leave, regardless.
The best way to PROLONG this is to fight the eviction. First, to write back a response to the notice, and then file a REPLY to any eviction. Then, to appeal any eviction judgment. This can prolong the eviction PROCESS by about a month, giving you time to find other accommodations.
I wish I had better news here.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am a different contributor, as your previous contributor had to leave.
I have read through the above and from what you wrote and it is very confusing. I understand you are upset and I know you are very familiar with your situation, but you need to be able to clearly tell us your situation.
So you had a lease, when does it expire?
Your rent was paid up to date?
You never received a written notice to evict?
You have never been sued for eviction?
Are you still in the property?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
