    Answered . If you have a rental agreement, you are bound by its terms. If it is a standard agreement, the landlord can give you 45 days notice of termination without any specific reason and a 5 day notice for failure to pay rent. No one will force you to move out until court action is taken by the landlord. However, then you may be liable for the landlord's attorney's fees and court costs.
