If you are on a month-to-month rental agreement, the landlord can give you a notice to quit, just like you can give one to the landlord. The only exceptions would be if there is an issue regarding the habitability of your rental unit which you brought to the landlord's attention, or if the landlord is retaliating against you for a complaint to a governmental agency.

Your landlord cannot evict you for that reason if you have a written lease. If you have no written lease, then either party can terminate tenancy with 30 days notice. How does your landlord know that you know about other tenants' living habits? Additionally, you are not your landlord's paid watchdog.

If you have a lease, this is not sufficient grounds. If you are month to month, termination can be with or without cause as long as 15 days advance notice is given.

    Not at all. If you have a lease, you have the right to stay until the lease is up. If you don't have a lease, then you are a month-to-month tenant, and the LL can terminate your tenancy by giving you a 30 day written notice. He can do that for any reason or no reason.
