: I would appreciate any advice you could offer.
There is no official buying of "extra time." A landlord gives you a notice
of termination. If you fail to move, he can't just change the locks. Instead
he must go through the courts to get an order of eviction, and that process
can take some time. You can also negotiate with the owner to give you
extra time to find a new place.
