A: I assume you have a lease?

If so, you can stay until you are evicted. There is MUCH more to this than just that though, for example, to whom do you pay rent, etc.

I'd urge you to consult with a landlord-tenant lawyer in your area to figure out how to best 'land on your feet' because under most circumstances, you ARE going to get evicted/the lease will end and not be renewed at some point, and it makes sense to prepare for that before the time comes!
