Rental dispute with ex boyfriend

My boyfriend is trying to kick me out of a house that I got for us when my aunt moved out of it almost 2 years ago. He had nothing . no job no money nothing I paid for everything. Now hes got a couple jobs and has money, and thinksi should leave with my 16 year old daughter. Because I told him I was leaving I'm having issues finding another place to rent that I can afford for me and my child and hes said I gotta be out by end of AIG. This year. That's less then a month. Can he do this legally? No right?

I'm very sorry to hear about this dispute. In order to give you proper advice, I would need you to answer some questions for me. For instance, who owns the home? Are you and your ex-partner common law? Is there a tenancy agreement at play here?

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss further. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182. 

Yours very truly,

Ordinarily, landlords must provide written notice if they want you to leave, and there are limited circumstances where it is an option to evict. I cannot provide specific advice about your situation without a consultation, but as a general rule landlords cannot arbitrarily throw tenants out, even where the lease is month-to-month.
