there is good reason not, to under applicable law, not less than 90 days from the expiration date. This date is very soon, so I asked the 'Landlord' for the new lease.

You can continue to live in the apartment month-to-month, however, the landlord may eventually move for eviction for your failure to sign a new lease. Or you can negotiate with your landlord for that provision.
While there is a moratorium on evictions, it sounds like there is domestic violence potentially at play. You may be able to obtain a temporary restraining order which would require his removal at least temporarily.

I sounds like your rights are being violated. If it is an illegal apartment, you may be able to get 6 months of rent to move. You need to talk with a land lord tenant attorney that handles tenant side matters to go over all of the facts of the situation and your options.
My landlord is taking me to court for nonpayment of rent which I’m prepared to pay yet she is including $600 of late fees from some previous months. The paperwork for eviction says they must be listed in the lease agreement as “additional rent”, which it’s not. Just listed as “late fee”.
