Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Unfortunately, since your lease is currently month to month, it can be terminated with only a month's notice. This means that if the landlord is planning to do substantial work that will take several months, it may be cheaper for the landlord to terminate your residency rather than offer relocation costs. If you don't believe that will happen because, as you stated, she is a good landlord, then you will certainly be entitled to rent deferment for the term that your apartment is not habitable. This means that she will not be able to charge you rent for the time you don't have access to the apartment. However, she will not have to provide you with compensation for another home during the time of the repairs. Do you have renters' insurance? If so, I would recommend that you call them and ask if they provide any relocation coverage for repairs.
