The landlord must serve you with a written notice terminating your tenancy at least thirty days before the expiration of your month-to-month tenancy. (Real Property Law 232-a) The notice must be served in the same manner as a court eviction notice. (Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law 735).

It will take several weeks in court before the landlord can obtain an eviction warrant. Even then, the court may give you up to six months additional time if you cannot find another place, although two months is usually the norm with more time after that if you still can't find another place. (Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law 753). You can find the text of all of these laws on the web site at
