Private Landlord -- Rent Control

Newest and 3rd Landlord of 1.5 years is Ellis-ing me,a 66yr old who's lived in this duplex for 18 years.He recently divulged to me he will be using my unit for his GIRL FRIEND'S studio and is most likely not going to break through wall to make one big home. I believe the law states that a person, not related to landlords immediate family, can not be used to Ellis a tenant from his apartment. So, it's his girlfriend, not his legal wife.Just because they shack up together does not make them husband and wife. Therefore, until they DO marry isn't he technically breaking the law; and thus can NOT,at this time, Ellis me ?
