Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
Your cousin is a month to month tenant. As such, the new owner, or your cousin, may terminate the tenancy upon 30 days written notice. If your cousin does not leave after 30 days then the landlord must file for an eviction in the courts. The landlord can not evict your cousin without obtaining an order of possession.
I hope this is helpful. If you have more follow up questions please let me know. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
