Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Pennsylvania

Q: What is the difference between non-renewal of lease letter, and a notice to quit?

Landlord gave me non renewal of lease letter dated for 9/30. Said she want to sell this house. I do not owe any rent, nor violated the lease in any way, but I am only income to my family of 2 adults, and 3 children ages 16,11, and 3. I was handed this letter on 9/10. What are my options, if any? Is the non renewal of lease letter acting as the notice to quit? I'm very confused, and stressed out. I will not be able to leave tomorrow as there is no money, and there are no apartments big enough for my family. If I become a holdover tenant, or whatever it is called when someone stays after end of lease, does my landlord then give me notice to quit? Any help is appreciated.

A: They have to give you a 30 day notice to quit. I suggest you contact legal aid.Ask for their landlord tennant group.
