I have been renting a room from my landlord for 28 months now in California.
His house has been up for sale for a few months, and he finally got an offer. The potential buyers are able to close in 10 days and would like us out by then.
There is no written contract containing a lease agreement. I do know that since I have been paying rent every single month, for the same amount, and same time of the month, that constitutes an implied contract and thus it is enforceable.
I also know that the implied contract would be a "month-to-month" contract in which the Landlord or I (tenant) would be required to give a 30-day written notice to break the lease agreement.
What i'm trying to figure out is what i'm entitled to? If he wants me out in 10 days instead of 30, what would the landlord have to pay to wipe out those other 20 days?
