: What I want to know is how long do I have? I read that the law says that they have to tell me by the end of January if they want me out by March 1st. Is that true? Do I have any legal ground to delay the inevitable eviction? I need time to get my taxes, get a job and save enough to move, but I am pretty worried here. Where I'm living isn't rent-controlled, BTW. It's just a small apartment with furnished lights and heat.
as far as the required notice, you are correct, if they want you out by march 1, they have to give you WRITTEN NOTICE 30 days before that, being that february is a short month, count the days to be sure.
as far as getting evicted, yes, it will probably happen, and it may take sometime. sometimes only a few weeks, sometimes a few months.
you'll want to check your lease agreement (if there is one) regarding 'holdover' rent, it may be substantial and change your mind.
as far as legal grounds to 'stay' the eviction, you may get some time, but don't count on it.
