Yes. If you pay rent on a monthly basis, the LL can terminate your lease with 15 days notice, unless your lease says otherwise. It doesn't matter if you work out of your home or how long you've lived there, or anything else. The LL doesn't have to give you a reason to terminate your lease.

I have 3 months left on my lease. My landlord is selling unit to someone I have never met and is saying I have to stay and complete the lease with this stranger. I want to move out before he closes. How can I be forced to stay in a contract with someone I never met?
Your lease transfers to the new owner at closing. You don't have a say in it. If you want to terminate the lease, you'll have to work it out with the new owner. Doing so will likely cost you way more than staying in the place until the lease terminates on its own, then moving to a new place.
So, I know I'm in the wrong too, but I need to see the best way to go about this. I have outside cats and just move where the landlord doesn't want animals, but they are outside cats. For my own reasons, I didn't mention it and just need a week or so for them to get use to their new... Read more »

More than likely, when your Mom died your step-dad inherited the property by operation of law or in a Will. Once that happened, his children become the heirs. Sorry to say, you are out. The fact your mom paid for the land is of no consequence. Had the Step-dad died first, his kids would be out.
