About 2 months ago I got a call from my landlord saying there was going to be an inspection in the place I’ve been living in for almost 3 years. Later that day the landlord told us we had to vacate asap. I called the town and they told me the apartment was illegal . I then spoke to an attorney and he advised me to stop paying rent and to wait for the eviction. It’s been almost 3 months and still no eviction . The landlord doesn’t disclose much information with me . I am still looking for another place I can find affordable for me. What are my rights ? Please help
If the unit has been determined by the town as illegal, then the landlord must pay you 6 months’ rent at least 5 days before you vacate the premises, even if the landlord files an eviction complaint and obtains a warrant for removal.
