: What are our rights, NYState-
: My mother and my sister co-own the 3 family house where my husband,
: son and I are living. (3 apts)
: Mother gave us verbal agreement (no lease) that we can stay in house.
: We are very limited income and do not pay rent, only some
: utilities. Sister pays mortgage on the house, mother pays some taxes.
: Sister is buying out mother's half of house and has verbally told us
: we have to move out so she can rent, needs the money.
: We have nowhere to go, question is, what legal action does sister
: (new owner) have to do to evict us, and can we buy time past July when
: she becomes full owner to save up for a place to go. she will
: not negotiate with us, intends to receive far more rent than we can ever
: pay. what rights do we have as a living family before she acquired home
: in full? How much notice does she have to provide if any before
: taking over the home? Want to know our rights when July comes around.
: appreciate any help
I believe we answered your query some time ago. If your sister buys
the property outright, then she is owner and you are a month-to-month
tenant. She would be able to change the terms or seek your eviction
with notice, usually 30 days. That she is family probably has
no bearing on this.
