Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight. Yes if you have a lease or month to month you still have a right to reasonable notice and fair resolution.It is not reasonable here that you can just up and move.You can hold out for some kind of resolution.He cannot force you out if there is nowhere for you to go at this point.You are entitled to some time and some compromise in all of this. If the property is uninhabitable he should help you make alternate arrangements and pay for you to relocate and give you time to do so. I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again and the best here.
