that my mother willed to the trust. New wife wants share. Does she get share of full estate, or just share of his half? This was not an a/b trust, and he was able to revoke, modify, etc...what happened to my mother's half??
Or perhaps they want to terminate the lease in order to make repairs that would be impossible with someone living in the place. In any event, it doesn't matter why the LL gave you the notice. He did. Now you must leave.
The property containing my unit and 7 others in 4 duplex buildings has been sold.

No. You have to wait until he is physically gone. Arguably, removing these items would be considered self-help, and that is forbidden by statute. (Maybe you can remove the TV, but not the bed or the dresser)
I signed a lease to move in on the 13th(its now the 19th). The landlord refuses to let me move in because he is in the hospital, and wants to be there when I move in. I'm now homeless because I signed a lease for a place I can't move in.
