Ignore DJ's "advice" -- it is wrong and totally irresponsible.
: I hate to bring you bad news but you have 12 days to find a new place to live.
: The landlord can bring a holdover and can charge you a much higher rent,(called use and occupancy) PLUS the landlord could also give you with the eviction notice a 30 day notice that he is raising the rent on October 1st and it will be $1000 a month higher. All perfectly legal.
: Unless you have some overriding reason to want more time to find a place, such as you have arthritis in your knees and MUST live on the 1st floor or in an elevated building....
: A jduge is not going to be sypathetic ......and YES with NO lease if the landlord gives you a 30 day notice with a $1000 a month increase, NO judge is going to void that.
: Sorry 12 days and counting.
