If I moved in with my terminally ill father (to care for him) in April 2009, and my father died in July 2009, and I continued living on in his condo, do I have the same agreement as my father with the landlord? This is a condo unit with an HOA: I have notified the landlord in writing of the my father's death, and the landlord addressed me in writing as the "tenant in possession". As of today, I am still renting from the landlord, but I would like to ask him to paint and re-carpet the unit. Do I have the same tenant rights? What does this mean for me?
