The landlord can provide a tenant with a notice of eviction and there needs to be grounds.

But even if there are grounds the landlord cannot actually force the tenant to get out unless there is an order.

But to answer more specifically in terms of what notice may be required I really need to know some of the basic facts first.

How much notice do they need to give. I was under the assumption it was 30 days
It always depends on the grounds.

So what is the reason for the eviction. For example, non-payment of rent is a different ground than the landlord wanting to live in the place him/herself.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
They wish to move back in. We had a verbal agreement and paid 2000 for one month starting on the 3rd of August and now they want us out on the first
They cannot do that.

The can evict you if they want to move back in.

But they most assuredly cannot have you move out by the first of September.

If a tenant is on a month-to-month tenancy then the tenant is entitled to three clear months notice if the landlord wants to move into the premises.
