Are you merely moving someplace temporarily til the renovation is complete or are you permanently moving? Either way, I would ask the LL if he could help at least with half of your moving expenses as this does inconvenience you. Get everything the LL agrees to do in writing as verbal promises mean squat. And videotape, document document document the apartment you're in now, just in case.

Why the other two posts brought up buying homes instead of renting is beyond me -- that point is not significant to your question and a separate issue altogether.

: I lived in a 2story building with a store downstairs and 2 apartments upstairs in Queens,NY. I rent on a month to month basises for the past 17 years. My landlord is selling the building. It is almost to closing. The new owners said that they want to renovate the apartments. There is a 90% change that we will be ask to move. If this is the case who is responsible for our cost of moving? My present landlord said he will pay the realstate broker for his commission but only if we go to his broker. Two people told me that the landlord has to pay for all cost of moving if we have to move.What is the truth to this. I can't save enough money to move within the next 2 or 3 months.
