Just to confirm, you are saying there is NO written lease currently in effect?
Are you online with me?
I have made an offer for the premium service (phone call). You will need to accept that if you want to speak by telephone.

Thank you for the additional information. 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.
There is nothing illegal about asking the landlord for additional time. However the landlord is under no legal obligation to give you consent to stay past the 15 days required in the Florida statute. So, if they give 2 months they are going beyond the time legally required.
If you and the landlord can agree to period of time you can stay make sure to get it in writing (that includes the 2 months they have already given).
Without something in writing they can terminate on 15 days, regardless of what you were told.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not 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.
