I have a landlord who owns a co-op in Plains NY/Westchester

I have a landlord who owns a co-op in White Plains NY/Westchester County. My rent is late, I also got a 3 day notice to pay or get sued. I signed a 2 year lease in February 2015 which means my lease will be ending this coming February 2017 so I move out. I have been paying my rent on time or even not on time but I've never failed to Pay. I never paid December but I also communicated with my landlord and asked him if I could send both the December and January rent at the same time in January of which he agreed too. I did drop off the rent check at my landlords lawyers office last friday and i had enough funds to cover both months but being a long weekend/MLK weekend, they then deposited it yesterday on tuesday and therws a bill that went through and and took a slight amount of monies so the rent check got declined and i found out after callimg my bank today to see if they had deposuted the rent check. I've also learnt that co-ops can't be rented to non owners. How soon could I get evicted? Please advise. I'd even prefer giving me a call @9146847070 . Thank you very much.

I have a verbal agreement to purchase a house for $300k (the last appraisal). I have put roughly $50k into it over 6 months. It is an investment house owned by my mother that she wants to sell. We agreed on a price and she evicted tenants (turned out to be hoarders. the house condition hasn't warranted the price) contingent too on the sale of my house with a me paying off her $50k mortgage then monthly payments. Our house hasn't sold yet, so the $50k mortgage cant be paid off yet but we still have put up the remaining $50k in materials and labor to get the house habitable again, in good faith. We have the house listed to rent in the mean time. Mom has since been diagnosed with cancer and family is being hostile towards us, because we have nothing in writing. What do we need to do to get, at the very least, our money back and at best ownership of the property?

I have a rental property that flood water came up under the

i have a rental property that flood water came up under the floors in April 2016. The tenant made me aware that there was water in the yard and garage but no mention of the house. On December 12, 2016 my tenant told me the house was making her sick due to mold. I noticed that the floors were warped in several areas while at the house in December 2106. i asked when she noticed the floors warping, she stated in September of 2016. my question is if i'm responsible for the cost to replace the floors? compensate her for living expenses during the repair work? compensate her for rent paid during the renovations?

A close friend of mine is on a month to month rental of a home in a California senior community. Last October, the owner gave her a 120 day notice to move out because they are wanting to sell the property in the Spring. Unfortunately, my friends' sister, who is on the rental agreement, has been put on hospice as of December and given a maximum of 6 months to live. It is going to be very difficult for several reasons for the two of them to move out on February 28th. Does she and her sister have any rights to allow her to stay past February 28th?
