LL didn't renew lease--help me Ed!

Posted by Amanda on August 24, 2000 at 16:20:04:

I live in a 1BR floor-thru in Brooklyn, it is a 4 unit brownstone. I have been living in the apt 2 years, my lease recently ran out and the landlord refused to renew it because he is trying to sell the building. I can continue living there but I am concerned about the security deposit (one month rent and the last month's rent--stated in those terms on the lease) -- the landlord isn't evil but I don't necessarily trust him with $1500 without having the security of a lease. After all it is a business relationship not a friendship.

My questions are:
How much notice does he legally have to give me to vacate premises if I don't have a lease?
Can I still get the security deposit back even if I don't have a lease but the apartment is in appropriate condition?
