Thank you for the additional information. I am so 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, there is no legal obligation for the manager or landlord to renew a sec. 8 lease when it expires. All that is legally required is that the landlord give 60 days written notice of nonrenewal, which they have apparently done.
While you may want to find a new apartment to move to where you can get a fixed term lease, you can also see if there is some way to motivate the landlord to enter into a new lease.
Sometimes it is just a matter of offering a nominal increase in the rent payment.
Also, if you believe you are being discriminated against due to race, religion, age, etc., you can file a complaint with HUD and the State Attorney General's Office.
Otherwise, I am afraid, your legal options are limited.
I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not wan to you spinning your wheels on this.
