From what you said, your mother is a month-to-month tenant. The landlord has to give her 30-days' written notice to terminate her tenancy.
If your mother doesn't move by the termination date, the landlord would have to go to housing court to evict her. The judge could give her six months to move, after a trial, or you could try to negotiate a longer period with the landlord.
: my mother who is widowed and 84 years old lives in a brownstone in brooklyn that is owned by a friend. there are three rental apartments in the building.
: she has lived in the building for 27 years and has never had a written lease. the building was just sold and she has been told that she must leave within 90 days because the new owner wants the entire building for his family. can she be forced out of her apartment and how do i find out what her rights are?
