A: Your location says Noncock, OH, but the question is posted in New Jersey? If you are in New Jersey the evictions courts are not really working at this time. Cases can be filed, but the sheriff's are not performing lock outs.

A: Yes, you are entitled to a new month to month lease subject to any reasonable new conditions and rent increase. If the landlord is planning to sell to someone who will occupy the premises or retire the premises from the real estate market place, he can refuse to renew.
