I requested a couple of months notice in Nov but was given 5 weeks.

Posted by Sarah Orndorff on February 24, 1998 at 20:33:39:

So I have been living in a apartment for two and a half years with a woman
I found in the Voice. Things were mostly fine until she found a boyfriend.
She then proceeded to TELL me the boyfriend was moving in, moved him in and
now I'm out. I asked for more details as to how long the boyfriend was staying
etc etc. Really I knew I should start looking then but didn't as I thought I was
moving in May anyway (I'm a PHD student and my semester ends in May)
(this was in Nov). In late January, she
tells me that I have to move out by the end of Feb (MIDSEMESTER!). She has
given me no good reason (though I suppose it simply has to do with privacy
for her and the boyfriend (I get that).
My question then is: can she legally do this??
I specifically asked for more than a month's notice from her in Nov. I asked
for a couple of months, she said "we can work something out". But she has
not held up her end of the bargain.
Surely I understand that she just may want to fuck on the couch all weekend
long but why am I bearing the brunt of this? I now have to try to find a
two month place near school, where I can still keep up the pace with my
schoolwork while living out of boxes. I already work over 60 hours a
week with school and my parttime jobs. It seems inconceivable what she
is asking me to do.

Can I just ignore her? By the time she gets legal with me, I will be gone.
Any ideas on how to resolve this will be most helpful. I have simply asked
why the hurry, especially when I am leaving anyway in May but she does not
address the issue.
Thanks for any attention you may provide.
