I have no lease my landlord gave me a thirty day notice to leave and is going to double my rent if im not out can she do that i have two small kids?
It's not necessarily 30 days. If rent is due on the first and the notice comes thereafter, the notice won't terminate the lease until the subsequent full month. For example, notice on Feb. 10 means you must be out by the end of March rather than March 11.See question

Good luck.See question

My advise is to pay a local attorney to review your lease and provide a consultation. Unless you want to spend thousands litigating on the mold issue and pay for testing and an expert witness, you might not want to sue.See question
