: I rent a room in a private home on Long Island, in New York. There is no written lease and the rent is 90$/month.

: In July, I lost my job and fell behind in the rent by 3 weeks. Since then I have paid my weekly rent, but remain behind 3 weeks.

: The landlord has said that he wants me to move out by the end of this week. Since last Wednesday (12/12/01) I have paid him $240. My sister has the cancelled checks to prove I have been paying since July.

: Does he have the right to put me out?

Not a lawyer but if you have no written lease he only has to give you thirty day written notice and you must vacate, regardless if you are current with your rent or not.
