our building is in escrow and the new owner wants
to move into the TWO upper unites combining it
into one and wants both tentants to vacate within
30 days. What are our rights?
There are so many relevant factors that it would be difficult to just discuss your situation. I can tell you that if you do not have a lease, you will probably be a month to month tenant (I am assuming that you are residential, month to month rent) and the maximum time you may have is 60 days. It should not matter that your building is "in escrow" as your rights with the landlord are dependant upon that relationship. If you did not receive written notice you may be able to hold out until you do. At that point, depending upon the state, you may get either 30 days from the date of the notice, or one full rental period, e.g. if your lease/relationship begins on the first of the month and you get notice on the 15th of the month, you have a full month in which you must move beginning on the 1st of the following month.
