Fact: You don't own the apartment, you rent. As a month to month tenant you can be asked to LEAVE on a MONTH'S NOTICE for ANY REASON. If you want to stay and the landlord is offering you a lease, take it! Otherwise he is absolutly free to ask you to leave and to do with the apartment whatever he wants - including give it to his ex-wife.
: Boston, MA
: We recently began a month to month policy after a year lease. The landlord's wife said she was moving in in September due to her and her husbands separation. She said if we don't sign a lease by then, she is moving in and kicking us out. My first question is is this legal? Does this depend on which party was named on the lease contract? My second question is I noticed the comment on raised rent. We currently pay for gas and electric. Can they unjustifiably raise the rent?
