This is embarrassing and I realize I should have done things differently. I live in a shared home and pay rent to the lease holder. He doesn't want me to live here anymore and has given me a few days to move out. Between work and finding a new place, this is not enough time. He said if I sign additional terms and pay more money I can stay one more month. He said if I don't give him a key to my room he will kick me out immediately.
I have an agreement by email for the cost of rent and damage deposit etc. however it says nothing about ending the arrangement.
What rights do I have? I know if I did have a RTB tenancy agreement the landlord would have to go to court and hire a bailiff to kick someone out. What's the minimum amount of notice to vacate, I can't believe it's just one day? I'm afraid the lease holder, who lives in the same house as me, will
- change the locks while I'm out
- remove my belongings and put them outside
- remove my belongings and keep them for himself
- try to physically remove me from the house
If any of these happen should I call the police just to make a report? Should I tell the leaseholder it's illegal to kick me out without notice?
