I am in the same situation. My husband and I have rented this place for 5 years. The landlord isn’t renewing our lease because he can get double what we pay. Now I have no idea where we’re going to end up because the prices people are charging is just crazy. Rent control should be a thing.
My Grandparents are in their 80s and being forced to move. They do owe some back rent but have done all repairs including cosmetic repairs. They have the money for the rent and the back rent however she wants to sell her home and no renew the lease after April 30th. They pay 725$ and are now looking at prices well over 1k a month that they cannot afford. What if anything can we do to help them ? They are having difficulty finding somewhere to go and they can’t pack an entire house up in one week and vacate. Thank you in advance for your time ..
