: I've been a month to month renter for almost ten years and the landlord
: is renovating my place, and has already scheduled a tenant who he
: expects to move in Feb. 1, he asked me to move out by then but as of
: yet haven't found a place. Does anyone know approximately how long

: knowledge on such subjects would be appreciated. Thanks!
In New York State, landlords have to give 30 days notice for month to month tenants to vacate. There may be some different laws downstate, so you'll have to check. And just a suggestion, if you think you may not get your deposit back, DO NOT PAY JANUARY'S RENT. As far as eviction goes, that's pretty risky. You're better off finding a new place, and using your security deposit for your last month's rent.
