no lease/last month's rent

Posted by S. Nichols on February 18, 1998 at 20:30:59:

I have been living in my current dwelling for a year and a half (itís one half of my landlordís house). When I moved in, I paid first and last monthís rent and signed NO LEASE whatsoever. We had a verbal agreement that I would stay at least a year, which I did.

The landlord informed me several weeks ago that he and his wife would like to take back my side of the house because they want to live in it, and told me that I had until May to find another place to live. Fair enough. Rent was due on the 15th of this month, so instead of paying it I told him to use my last monthís rent now and I would move. He pitched a fit, saying I needed to give him one monthís notice before using my last monthís rent (Iím assuming he already spent it). So basically, my time is up on the 15th of next month.

My question is this: if I havenít found a place to live by the 15th of next month, what can he legally do to me? I offered to pay him for every day I am here, but he wants me OUT. What are my rights? And can he take me to court for any damages since I didnít pay a security deposit?

I would appreciate a reply before Friday. Thanks
