Legal remedy as land lord asks to vacate without giving any reason

The landlord has suddenly sent a mail giving a month's notice, to vacate the flat. But he has given no reason at all. We have asked him over email, but he has not replied. Landlord works in Qatar, and he has not given his Qatar phone number. The landlady (who stays nearby) is also not picking up the call. We have always maintained a cordial relationship with them, we paid the rents and bills on time, any letters of theirs if it comes we inform them. In short: we have no idea. This is causing undue stress for us everyday, as we are not in a position to move right now. Can you kindly please help and advise on this? Thanks.

Need to b worry about. If landlord chooses to evict you, he had to approach the case to prove Atleast one of the ground to terminate the tenancy and in that event u will get opportunity to disprove landlords case. At this stage just forget the notice as it does confer any right to recover possession from u.

Read your rent agreement first if there is clause for termination of agreement then that clause need to check .. you can mail to owner and ask why he wanted to terminate the contract if he doesn't have proper reason he can not vacate you as such
