can a landlord evict me,just because i don't get along with my neighbor.?

He can give you a 30 day notice to vacate and then evict you on the grounds of failure to vacate. So yes, if he wants to give you a 30 day notice because the neighbors are complaining he must certainly can.

Just a small town girl
No, your landlord can't evict you just because you and your neighbour don't get along. However, if they have proof that you are disrupting your neighbour living their enough to make it very incredibly impossible to live there, he may have a case. But I highly doubt he could.

he can but it wont be cheap or immediate Eviction Notice Your landlord must give you a written Eviction Notice, sometimes called a "Notice To Quit." If you do not have a lease, the Notice will tell you that you have either 7 days or 30 days to move out. (An oral eviction notice is generally not legal). Keep your eviction notice. The Eviction Notice is not the same thing as a court order. Your landlord cannot legally evict you until he gets a court order allowing the eviction. (If you live in a rooming house, these rules may not apply to you. Read more.) If your landlord tries to evict you without getting a court judgment, call the police. Call Pine Tree Legal if the police won't help. Your landlord cannot legally change the locks, shut off your utilities or try to keep you out of your home. Court Papers At the end of the time period given in your Eviction Notice (usually 7 days or 30 days), your landlord can serve you with court eviction papers. These are called a "Summons and Complaint". A Deputy Sheriff usually serves them on you. Call Pine Tree Legal right away if you get these court eviction papers. Eviction by Court Judgment The court papers will tell you the date of your eviction hearing. If you want to fight the eviction, you must go to court. In court you may ask your landlord questions, bring your own witnesses and exhibits (photos, for example), and explain your side of the story. Your landlord can go to court to try to evict you even if you think your landlord is wrong. You can be evicted even if it is winter or you have children or you have nowhere to go. It is up to the court, not your landlord or Pine Tree Legal, to decide if you can be evicted. If you go to court and lose, you have the right to appeal. If you lose and do not appeal, after seven days you will be served with a "Writ of Possession". This is the eviction order of the court. You then have 48 hours to move out.

A landlord is under no obligation to renew you lease and can ask you to move once your lease expires. I am sorry this happening to you. I also have awful neighbors.

Tell him that it is a wrongful eviction an you will be speaking to your lawyer if he does so

He can't evict you, but he can decide not to renew your lease when it comes up.

Felonious Monkey
Your landlord cannot violate your lease agreement. If the lease gives your landlord the unconditional right to evict you with 30 days notice - then he can evict you. Otherwise you can't be evicted unless you violate the lease.

No, and if your statement is true you have a legal case to sue. Seek an attorney for a free consultation and if you can get his statement recorded it would be even better.
