I live in an apartment in a 2 family home in queens NYC. I am currently out of work and things have been very tight to say the least. Today I just
received some very disturbing news. The owner of the house has decided to put it on the market. I am a member of a laborers union and trying to get
myself on a crew I have been willing to accept any work I could get instead of getting a perminant job all I did was manage to put a monkey wrench
in my unemployment benefits. I already borrowed what I had in my annuity fund to get my family this far without being homeless.
Now with her selling the house I am at a lost for what I am going to be able to do. Without any source of income I am barely scraping by now. Selling
my possessions and anything else I could just to keep a roof over head and food on the table.
There is no way I can afford rent,security, and possibly real estate fees. I can barely cover rent from month to month and I am behind on every other
bill I have.
I am in no way looking for a free ride or to screw over my landlord . I have been here 5 years and they have always been fair and understanding to me
and my family.
I guess my real question is can they just put me and my family in the street if they sell. I feel very awful but I have been thinking about with
holding my rent so I can put together enough money to move. I have no family members I can turn to so its me against the world as stands and I am
mortified thinking of what will happen if I am evicted before I find a place for my family.
Thanks for any advice or info
