A: Unfortunately, if you are not on the lease, then you do not have any rights under the law to remain in the property. Moreover, you are not entitled to any formal notice to vacate. Either the landlord, or the individuals on the lease, or both, may file an ejectment suit against you to remove you from the premises.
