Your landlord has common sense. He wants the apartment back and is willing to negotiate with you to keep everything on good terms.
You have a terrific opportuniy to collect a $10G windfall. Use common sense. Take the money and put it into a condo of your own, and you'll never have to deal with renting again.
What will happen if you don't take the landlord's offer ? Yes, you will have to leave. What the others have said is true, there are ways you can try and delay the inevitable. But keep in mind that YOU would be footing the bill for any legal expenses and investigation expenses, and in all likelihood, he would prevail in the end -- after all, he does own the building. You might even wind up having to pay his legal costs.
That fact that he actully suggests you talk to a tenant lawyer shows you he knows what he's doing and has his legal ducks lined up. And yes, he's entitled to take more than one aparment for family if he wants.
You have an opportunity in front of you. Use common sense.
