Help -

We (husband, self, 86 yr.old mother, 3 adult children) have been residing in a two-family, absentee landlord, home in Staten Island, NY.. Our rent has been paid on time for the past 7 years, with normal minor delays, we have improved the landlord's property and never sued him for damages to the apartment (expensive wall-paper covering; microwave, etc) when we had major leaks from the upstairs tenant's apartment. There are frequent leaks in the basement from cracks in the foundation, etc. etc.. He placed the house on the market approximately 1-1/2 years ago. It was recently sold and we were just handed a typed letter delivered by the painter telling us we were to vacate the premises by November 1st. The date on the letter was October 1st although we just received this letter today (October 12th). As we are not financially set and a move is in all honesty a serious hardship, We would like to find out what our recourse is? Also, in the letter there was a CC to his attorney and the NYC Marshall.
