Thank you for the additional information. If there is no current lease agreement in place at this time, you would be considered a month to month
tenant. If the landlord wanted you out of the rental property
, he must give at least fifteen days notice in writing prior to the end of any monthly period to terminate the tenancy. If he is looking to just raise the rent, he would need to provide you at least 30 days notice of the demand and it has to be in writing. If you failed to pay, then he could start eviction
proceedings, if you remain after the 30 days and do not pay the increase. Of course, you have a right to make him a counter offer, for an amount less then he is requesting and see if he will accept it. If he proceeds with the eviction and you want to contest it, you can but would need to show that he is trying to retaliate against you in some way, for your previous actions or request that he fix things, which he had a legal right to do.
