I've lived here for six and a half years. My most recent lease ran out at the end of July. Usually there's no problem renewing, but this time they dragged their feet, and last Friday they told me they weren't going to do so. I've been switched to month-to-month, and surely/probably/maybe/who-knows sometime I'll receive a 60-day no-cause eviction notice, as permitted by the law here.
Sharon, the manager, couldn't or wouldn't tell me anything. She did give me the name and number of someone at the management company to call, and I did just now.
And she won't tell me anything either. All she did was say that they had the right to do this, which I don't dispute. So I don't know what's happening.
The only good news is that they have not yet send me a 60-day notice.
I wonder if they're thinking of turning the place into a condo?
I don't need this.

I've read that the rental market is actually pretty busy right now. A lot of people being forced from homes they can't afford to buy any longer are moving into rentals instead.
I might talk to some neighbors but I don't really know any of them very well. There were some I did know but they've moved away. (Over the course of a couple of years; no particular feeling that it was sudden.)
I don't think I believe in the idea of a condo conversion, simply because the market for property sales right now is still in the toilet.
I feel better now. Last weekend was pretty bad, though.

But, with the bed bug issue, maybe they just want to clear out the apartment then idle it for a while to clean up any potential issues. Though that would seem slightly strange, in a few ways.
All told, that sucks, but it happens. I hope "house hunting" goes smoothly, even if it really is a pain in the ass.

I thought that might be the situation, but if it were, wouldn't they go ahead and get rid of me immediately?
I'm not going to look for anything new until I get an eviction notice.

Typically they would have to give you 30-60 days notice before they could evict you anyway, although I'd imagine you know that.
When they converted you to month to month did they raise your rent?

Rent's the same, and when the time comes it'll be 60 days notice.
And we don't have rent control laws here so far as I know.
