Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, the building belongs to the landlord. This means that if the landlord provides a proper 30 day eviction notice the tenant cannot fight to stay in the premises if there is no lease in writing guaranteeing them to stay for a longer time. So, if you do not have a lease and it is a month to month tenancy, you cannot fight eviction and win. If you have a written lease that has more time on it remaining, you can fight to enforce your written lease as written and make them allow you to remain until the lease expires or buy you out for the remaining months on the lease.
