Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Which state are you located in? Is it California?
I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
Unfortunately, without a written lease you are month to month tenants. As such, your tenancy may be terminated at any time, after the statutory notice period, for any reason or no reason. In California, after one year or residency, the notice period is 60 days, which is why I suspect you are located CA.
Therefore, your real choices are to negotiate with or convince the landlord to withdraw the termination notice (perhaps a hearing aid might obviate the need for speaking so loudly that it disturbs fellow residents) or to find a new place to live.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not necessarily a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
Are you online with me?
