can the landlord kick us out?
- Province - Alberta
- Landlord is trying to sell the unit we are renting. Our lease term was coming to an end at the end of July and we asked landlord whether they wanted us to stay on a month-to-month basis until they sold the unit. Landlord said yes - obviously to collect the rent while trying to sell the unit - and we agreed this by email. All seemed good until yesterday, when landlord said we have to move out at the end of July. Clearly, someone has made an offer and they was to get rid of us. But this does not seem fair, as we had agreed on going month to month, which would give us at least the month of August. Now we have only two weeks to move out.
This morning the landlord posted a move out notice on our door, leaving no room for negotiation.
What do you think are our options? Are they right to kick us out like this?
