Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Based upon what you shared above, you would be viewed as a tenant. Even though you were in a relationship, if they want you to leave they can provide you with a notice to do so and at least 30 days to vacate, after which they could proceed through the court and evict you. I am sorry to say but they do not have to give you several months, just one. As such, you need to try and work something out with them, to buy yourself more time and get them to cooperate, so this can be a peaceful separation and they do not have to worry about proceeding through the courts. You can offer to still pay rent and other expenses, to keep the peace but if they wanted to, they could demand you leave in a month and if you refuse evict you and have you out a few weeks thereafter. I know it was not what you were hoping to hear but I have an obligation to be upfront and honest with you.
