Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

do I have to resign another year or do I can I do month to month

.

This depends on you and the landlord entirely... Sec 8 doesn't require a yearly lease to be re-signed, so it is up to the landlord about whether he wants a renewal lease each year and whether you as a tenant want to agree to re-sign one.

.

If neither of you wants to sign a renewal lease, then the tenancy would continue indefinitely as a month to month with either of you being able to terminate it with a written 30 day notice.

.

It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. If you ever need me in the future, you can post a new question with "For Barrister" in the title and the JustAnswer employees will get it to me.

.

If you feel I have answered all your questions, I would very much appreciate a 5 star rating by clicking on the rating scale on your screen as that is the only way I receive credit for my work.

Thanks much

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
