"A landlord can end a periodic tenancy(for example, a month-to-month tenancy) by giving the tenant proper advance written notice. Your landlord must give you 60 daysâ€™ advance written notice that the tenancy will end if you and every other tenant or resident have lived in the rental unit for a year or more. However, the landlord can give you 30 daysâ€™ advance written notice in either of the following situations:
* Any tenant or resident has lived in the rental unit less than one year; or
* The landlord has contracted to sell the rental unit to another person who intends to occupy it for at least a year after the tenancy ends. In addition, all of the following must be true in order for the selling landlord to give you a 30-day notice
The landlord must have opened escrow with a licensed escrow agent or real estate broker, and
The landlord must have given you the 30-day notice no later than 120 days after opening the escrow, and
The landlord must not previously have given you a 30-day or 60-day notice, and
The rental unit must be one that can be sold separately from any other dwelling unit."
