Booth renter/me been there 9 years have my own room . Salon owner doing all kinds of adjustments to salon wich in tails moving me completely out of my Room wich I've completely got decked out because I'm a Nail tech to a cubby hole where is right by the main walk way everybody walks through! The main walk way! Like omg! She called me the night before and I proceeded to tell her how I felt about this situation! I'm not even sure she has that RIGHT to do that. To just tell me where I'm gonna go being self employed. But never saying that I wouldn't. The next day while clients there she wanted to go outside talk at the end of MY word day I declined nicely. So she sat a envelope on my station. I proceeded to clean up then she still decided to provoke more comes over gets in my face tells me I got to Go! Well as you know things got little loud. I did this all right in beginning by declining to talk it was during business. She knew exactly what she was doing! Also the typed up paper she gave me only measure out to be 29 days not 30! This wrong all the way around what are my rights? Do I have squatters rights? Can she just Boot me out ?
If you have a written lease agreement, that should answer some of your questions, but generally, if you're a month-to-month commercial tenant, your landlord can give you a 30 day written termination notice to end your tenancy. It doesn't sound like your landlord did that correctly, and so won't be able to evict you. You should probably talk with your own attorney to discuss your goals, leverage, strategy, and what to do if she attempts to evict you or forcibly remove you. But long term, your landlord doesn't need to let you stay and if you don't think that you can patch things up, then you should probably start looking for a new place.

I agree with Mr. Mauger - if you are on a month to month rental agreement, all she has to give you is 30 day's advanced written notice assuming you do not have a written lease that specifies something different. If you do, the terms of the lease presumably govern. Again depending upon the terms of your rental agreement, she may or may not have been able to move you to a different space but it sounds like that is behind you now. IF you can prove you only got 29 days written notice instead of 30, you likely can beat an eviction proceeding in court but she will presumably just give you a new, actual 30 day notice and evict you then, plus your time remaining there is likely to be a bit frosty. All in all, this is something that really is begging to be negotiated and resolved, most likely along the lines of you agree to get out but with a bit more time. Unless you have a written lease that specifies it, unlike residential landlord-tenant law, there is no provision for the loser paying the winner's attorney's fees if it goes to court. Thus even if you win because of the 29 days, it may still cost you something to do so. All in all, negotiating an agreement is likely to be your best option, perhaps with the help of your attorney who can "explain" things to the landlord without the same emotions coming into play and with a bit of clout behind him/her. So contact a landlord-tenant attorney for a in-depth review. Most of us in the Portland Metro area routinely practice in Columbia County as well. Good luck.

Every case is very "fact-specific" and persons wishing legal advice on a specific matter should contact me or another attorney for an appointment to review their particular circumstances and to create a lawyer-client relationship.
It may also be that what you have is a "license," not a lease. I suggest you have an attorney review the document.
