Thank you for using JustAnswer.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Without a written lease that gives you a specific period of time where you're guaranteed a certain rent and the ability to live there, such a lease situation that you would be in is a "month to month" lease. A month to month lease can be terminated by either landlord or tenant with 1 month's written notice specifying that you will need to be out of the premises. It's one month and written, so if he told you verbally and/or less than 1 month from when you need to be out, that's not enough. If you're still there in November, he couldn't "kick you out" but would have to go through the legal process of eviction, and that would require him going to court and showing that he gave one month's written notice prior to filing the eviction action. If he can't show that, then the eviction would be denied until he could. So that's something that could give you additional rights, in that you would be able to require him to give you one month's written notice, and that could give you a little bit more time. But aside from that, being a month to month tenant, you wouldn't have any rights to stay there indefinitely against the will of the owner of the premises.
