Q: Our landlord gave us a 90 day no cause termination of tenancy, can she make us leave if we don't have a place to go?
She sent us a certified letter, and we are trying to figure out a place to go. But it hasn't happened yet. What happens when she shows up on the day we are supposed to be out wanting us out. And our 5 kids
A: Whether that is lawful depends upon the reason given in the no cause notice. They can only be given for permitted reasons and only 2 of those reasons are allowed during the pandemic. Plus if she only sent the notice by certified mail, it is unenforceable. Additionally, if she has issued the notice impermissibly, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages. That said, it is not your landlord's problem if you have no where to move to. Consider reviewing it all with a local landlord-tenant attorney to learn your rights.
