: We just received a notice terminating our month-to-month tenancy because the landlord wants the apartment for "a cousin, nephew or someone with the same last name."
: What are our rights? Can we expect to stay in this apartment at all???
: TIA,

Not really. As a month-to-month tenant, the owner can terminate the
relationship on appropriate notice. It matters little why unless you
feel there's some retaliation for complaining, then you can claim
retaliatory eviction. Chances are the best you can do is buy some time,
either by negotiation or by being obstinate (and forcing him to take you
to court to get you out). He can't just change the locks at the end of
the month.
