Your landlord has a kind heart, he is offering to help you find a new apartment and pay your first month's rent ? Unheard of.

Needless to say, take him up on his offer. You have already been given 30 days notice. If you stay beyond this you will be evicted. You will not be responsible for the new owner's mortgage, they will simply evict you. Again, take the landlord up on his offer and leave now, you won't find anything better.


: I live in New York City. My landlord put the building up for sale and on the first day of showing it, someone bought it. They informed me on July 9,2000 the same day. They informed me that I would have to move by September 30 and the landlord also sent me a certified letter and 30 day notice. My landlord offered to assist me in finding a new apartment and to pay my first months rent for the new place. They are also returning my security deposit with interest. I have no lease. I have lived here 8 years and have a wife and two children. If I can't find an apartment, can the new owners hold me responsible for their mortgage since they cannot move in with me here or can I be evicted by my present landlord who served me with the 30 day notice? Our credit is bad which made it difficult to find a place so far. Speedy reply please.
