*Note this is a common answer and everyone must seek legal advice from a qualified attorney to resolve their problems.
From what I have read, it seems you are now more confused than ever
Don't worry about your living arrangements. You will still have to move assuming you live in a building with six apartments or less.
*Any Building with six families or more are considered rent controlled/rent stablized.
Being a month to month tenant grants the landlord and/or yourself the right to terminate a tenancy with a 30 day notice. Your landlord choose to inform you with a notice.
May people are afraid of this notice... And if it was in your power to move on the date requested then we would not be discussing this problem now.
Housing Court Judges are aware that people invest in their apartments, and grant a stay of eviction depending on the need of the landlord and the need of the tenant for the apartment, all this is debatable.
Six months is not written in stone and can be a source of hardship if you do not explain your self well to a Judge. So continue paying the rent and wait for a hold over procceding to start and explain to the Judge that you need time to relocate your family.
Some landlords pay you to move, some landlords don't relocate tenants... Request a meeting with your old/new landlord about the situation and discuss a way to make everyone happy.
: 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.
