Q: Can a landlord evict you so he can move in?
A: Look to the terms of your lease agreement. As long as he complies with his legal obligations then it doesn't matter what his subsequent plans for the property are. The landlord is the owner and can do what he wants with the property.
A: When a tenant's lease term expires, the landlord does not have to renew the lease, and can evict the tenant If tenant does not have a written lease, then the tenant has a month to month tenancy, and either landlord or tenant can terminate that tenancy at the end of any month by giving at least 30 days written notice that the monthly term is being terminated. If the tenant does not leave, the landlord can file an eviction. A tenant should avoid having an eviction filed, because it is a permanent court record that can make it difficult for the tenant to rent from a landlord who checks the records.
