I am a health care provider in a private office. Rent is always on time and we enjoy a good landlord/ tenant relationship over a period of 18 years. The office space next door is vacant and a doctor wants to lease both my space and the vacant space and sign a ten year lease. I have been notified the landlord wants me to vacate as soon as I can. How much time is reasonable for me to ask considering I will need to prepare a new office to accommodate state regulations per the health care I provide as well as shepherding my patients to a new location.
If you currently have a lease in force, then the lease will contain the answer to your question. If not, e.g. your lease expired; the law only requires that your landlord give you 30 days notice. Beyond that, it is only what you may be able to negotiate with the Landlord or delay by lack of cooperation. It is not the landlord's problem that you may need time to find a new space. Perhaps the landlord would be willing to give you more time if you offered to pay a premium rent as a holdover tenant. A landlord does not want to risk losing a new 10 year lease to accommodate your needs, especially if you were not willing to renew your lease on a longer term basis. This is what can happen when leases expire and are allowed to simply remain as a month to month tenancy.

If you do not have a lease signed then this appears to be a month to month tenancy. In a month to month tenancy for commercial space 30 day notice is required.
