IN most jurisdictions and for a residential lease, you are correct you must be given at least 30 days notice. That would mean if the landlord told you on July 5th you had to leave, you would have until August 30th to vacate. Now you should send him a letter advising him that he must provide to you a full 30 days notice. "Dear Mr. Landlord, I have received your demand to vacate. As you know the law provides me with a full 30 days to vacate the premises". Please be advised that any attempt to forcibly evict me will result in the assertion of my rights to the fullest extent of the law, including a court preceding and the payment of all of my legal expenses. This note is sent without prejudice to any rights in this matter. I herein reserve all of my rights at law and equity." Sincerely ***** ***** Villafane. Now aside from this you may have to go to court to preserve your rights and have the eviction stayed. This would be the safest course and it would be wise to have the landlord explain to a judge why he is trying to kick out a disabled person with virtually no warning. Hope this helps you. Best, Sean
