That's not equivalent to a lease and hence the LL isn't breaking a lease.
No lease, only an oral agreement around those specific points/amenities.

So the argument would be that the LL broke his oral agreement on a month-to-month tenancy. Good luck proving that.

Up until now the LL validated the oral agreement was correct, but who knows what they will say to the rav. 

I haven't heard back yet what the outcome was.  I gave the tenants my advice about state law, but I don't know if they are going to use it because the LL chose to go to their own rav instead of secular (a non-biased rav would probably be better for the tenants, but I still supported staying out of the secular system).

What holds back the LL from saying just go out from here?
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

Nothing, but he hasn't.

From what iv'e heard, it goes with minhag hamakoem.
Just like i'ts understood you give notice of leaving a month, or in some places more before.
It's not different than renting a 3 bdrm and then the landlord uses that room.
You would pay like it's a 2 bdrm.

The LLs don't accept it.  That is why they are taking the family to the rav.

IMO they (tenants) have a strong argument.

If there is no lease/contract,  why doesn't the tenant just move out?

If I were to place 3 ton concrete 'blocks' along the inside my property, concealed by a fence, and a car smashed into the fence and driver was injured due to the concrete, would I have any increased liability?
(Local zoning ordinances aside)

Wow, you're serious about this.  You never answered my question - what part of town?

A- הלוואי that an NPO would have the money to pay off such crazies, but that's not a feasible option here.

B- Wouldn't that just be inviting more trouble?
