as a month to month tenant, the landlord has to give 30 day notice to evict and at LL's discretion, no reason needed. Here's the main question: are you located in New York City or New York State?
In New York City there is the "Owner's Right to Access" law -- (NYC Admin. Code Section 27-2008), which prohibits tenants from refusing to permit owner, owner's agent or employee to enter tenant's rental until for the purpose of:
-- responding to emergencies
-- making repairs or improvements required by law or code, and
-- inspecting rental unit to determine if it complies with applicable laws and codes (usually done once a year by a LL).
: I HAVE A MONTH TO MONTH LEASE. LL IS TRYING TO SELL THE HOUSE. I HAVE BEEN VERY ACCOMIDATING IN ALLOWING MY LL SHOW MY APT. FROM MON-FRI AFTER 7:00PM & SAT & SUN BEFORE 12:00PM. ANY OTHER TIME I AM WORKING. SINCE I WAS UNABLE TO SHOW MY APT THIS PAST SUN BETWEEN 1:00-3:00 MY LL CALLED TO TELL ME TO START LOOKING FOR ANOTHER APT BECAUSE I AM NEVER HOME TO SHOW IT. THEN HE PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THAT HE IS TAKING THE LIBERY TO SHOW THE APT. ONLY WHEN IT IS CONVENIENT FOR HIM WHETHER I AM HOME OR NOT. CAN HE ENTER MY APT. WHENEVER HE WANTS TO? DONT I HAVE A RIGHT TO PRIVACY? I SPOKE TO A LAWYER WHO STATED THAT THE LL CANNOT JUST COME IN WHENEVER HE WANTS & ANOTHER LAWYER SAID I HAVE TO BE ACCOMADATING EVEN DURING WORKING HOURS. I AM REALLY NOT SURE WHAT TO DO. I DO NOT WANT ANYONE IN MY APT WHEN I AM NOT THERE...AND BY THE WAY, I JUST MOVED IN ON 1/1/01 & FOUND OUT THEY WERE TRYING TO SELL ON 1/12/01. MY STUFF IS ALL OVER THE PLACE. HOW CAN I LET STRANGERS IN? HELP ME
