Good morning. What is the basis for which they are being asked to leave? Is there a lease and the landlord simply wants them to vacate or are they in breach of the lease agreement?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Only one contract 12 years ago . He was upset that after 12 years I had pulled a dirty white carpet up and painted . I put down laminate wood floor at my own expense that can easily be removed . He told me that he had sent me a notice stating any changes had to be approved by him in writing . He also said that I was disturbing my neighbors piece which is not true my neighbors are willing to write a letter saying that I don't . He's only giving me 32 days to move out and he's threatening to keep my deposit with the letter that was not notified .

To simply end a month to month tenancy, the landlord would only be required to provide one-month written notice prior to a periodic rent-paying date (§§ 441.060(4)). Now, if the landlord is proceeding under a lease violation and not receiving permission, then a 10 day written notice to cure, would need to be given.
