Good morning. I am sorry to hear about what you are going through and know how tough it can be. Since there is no lease in place, you would be considered a month to month tenant. When that is the case, landlord or tenant can end/terminate the lease with at least one months notice. Based upon what you shared above, if the landlord advised that you needed to vacate by the end of next month ( i.e. September), then they would have provided you with at least a months notice and as long as it is in writing, to evidence it, would be deemed proper. I understand how hard it can be with your child and their disability but in a situation like this, there is no a defense or legal basis to stay, if the landlord wants you to vacate. Unless you can show that the landlord is discriminating against you and your son because of the disability, you would need to leave, at the end of next month or else they can evict you.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
