Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
While we write back and forth, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we are writing late at night, I may have to go to sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
I need the following answered before I can answer your question. Sorry - it's a little bit of a different process from sitting in an attorney's office.
Can you please tell me whether or not you had a lease and, if so, when it expires?
Do you want me to research this question for you on Westlaw?
I'll look forward to hearing from you,

I searched on Westlaw for you for cases in which tenants are forced to move out of a building because of code violations or condemnation.
Here's a case that came out against you:
Low income tenants of housing brought claim against city seeking damages for a Fifth Amendment taking and relocation benefits under the Housing and Community Development Act after city condemned property. Tenants brought motion for summary judgment. The District Court, Troutman, Senior District Judge, held that: (1) tenants had no reasonable investment backed expectation in continued possession of uninhabitable leasehold, and (2) tenants were not entitled to relocation benefits under the Housing and Community Development Act.Motion denied; case dismissed.
