I've been living @ the same apartment for 13 yrs. The property has been sold & there is a new landlord, that has sent me a 30-Day Notice To Quit. Do I have to move?

You have given us very few details regarding the status of your apartment. Have you been renting the same apartment for the past 13 years and the previous landlord sold the apartment without informing you? Did they show the apartment to the new buyers? Nobody buys a property without seeing it first. Another explanation could be that your apartment has been sold by the bank. Have you defaulted on your mortgage? Then, this could be the most plausible explanation for the 30-day notice. In this case, yes, you have to move.

We have property, our home, for 11 years, our property is in the county, but we Re at He end of a cul de sac, where we were permitt d to put our driveway across the right of way of the city. The Road thru this area is a subdivision being constructed during the time of our attaching to the cup de sac. There has only one house ben built I. This development In 11 years....we were informed by the property owner that we are encroaching about 2 1/2 feet of pavement on his property and some greenery down the driveway is also,in his propoerty. We want to move the 2 1/2 feet of concrete and the plants off his property to eliminate our encroachment. THe City is telling us now that we will have to move our driveway off the right of way bear use the property owner does not want two driveways near the lot adjoining our property....there is. 15' right of way on each of our properties, Dos the city have the legal right to tell us to move our driveway?

There's no simple answer to your question, Sue. 
We recommend you talk to a real estate agent or real estate lawyer so he/she can help you figure out zoning loopholes and try to fight for your interests in this matter. Good luck!
