: I just moved in to a two family house with no lease been there for six months. Now out of the blue my landlord tells me that I have to stop smoking or I will have to look for another place. He did not give me a time limit to be out by just said "smoking has to stop or you might want to look for another place to live".
: Nothing was ever said about smoking and I have nothing in writting so where do i stand.
The landlord can evict you for any reason or no reason as long as the reason is not one of the forbidden discriminatory ones (race, gender, etc). Search this forum for 'month to month' tenant or 'no lease' or '30 day notice' for more information about what the NYS laws require landlords to do to evict you. Hint: 'get out' is insufficient.
