Isn't this just lovely?!

Today, I received a call from the landlord, telling me that I have until the end of this month to move out.

Being I've never been late with the rent, and we've never had any problems, I asked her why, she said that her son is coming from Mexico and she wants to install him in this apartment.

Well that's just FUCKING LOVELY! Like, WHO is going to rent ME an apartment without a job?! NO ONE! Not to mention I'll have to rent a truck to move, come up with the deposit and first month's rent for this new place! And I have absolutelly NO way of accomplishing that.

I guess it's true... "When it rains... it pours!"

I'd talk to a lawyer about this....have him give the landlady a call. I don't think she can do that if she has no quarrel or complaint with you.

Good luck...

I'm pretty certain there are landlord and tennant laws that would apply in a situation like this. There must be a free legal service around that would answer some questions for you. I know in most major cities there is a tennents rights group. If there isn't one where you are, call the one in the next closest city that does have one. I'd rather pay for a long distance phone call then for moving. Good luck

If you have a lease you have a chance to fight it. If you do not have a lease then you have a month to month agreement and all the landlord has to give you is one month's notice I believe in Chicago/Illinois. In Chicago I also think you can call that 311 number and get some advice or be pointed in the right direction by them.
