Second, you keep asking about your rights hoping to demand to get your way, and it appears that you haven't also considered your landlord's rights. Keep in mind that a landlord has the right to not renew a lease. S/he also has the right to change the terms and/or increase the rent (within certain limits--especially in areas with rent control) via the new lease.
Third, you also mentioned in that post that you had a week-to-week rental. Typically, a tenant with a 1-year lease would be given 30-60 days notice to vacate (if the landlord opted to not renew), and a tenant with a month-to-month lease would be given a 1 month notice to vacate. If s/he opted to not renew your lease, then how much notice did you expect to receive?
Finally, some jurisdictions have mandatory minimums for a notice to vacate, and you might want to hire an attorney to help you to pursue this angle. Yet, keep in mind that if the property is as uninhabitable as you've claimed, then your local government might be the ones ordering your landlord to order you to vacate. If that's the case, then you might be fighting this in vain.
