Hollywood, FL asked in Real Estate Law, Elder Law and Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: What are my rights??

Hello, I live in Fl and am a disabled vet, I live with my daughter and her family.

We were just given a 45 day notice to move due to the rental being sold.

My daughter spoke to the landlord and asked for more time, (move out date of March 31) but she was informed that the lease expired after the 1st year, so I have no choice but to move out. Its very hard to find a place to accomodate me and my family in this short amount of time, and money is tight so trying to come up with the first last and security will be impossible. I also am going for surgery in two weeks so I am not going to be in a position to move, literally.

A: If the lease already expired the tenancy became a month to month tenancy. Therefore you or the landlord could terminate on 15 days notice.

It appears that the landlord did that. Based upon your post your only option is to move out or face an eviction action.
