What is the name of your state? California
I have a simple question...we are nearing the end of a year lease...it ends on September 30, 2007...this is the second year lease we signed with the existing landlord.
Is it required to submit a 30 day notice that we intend to leave? We have not agreed to any further tenancy beyond the end of the lease.
On the California Housing website, [url]http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/moving-out.shtml[/url], I found this:
periodic rental agreement - an oral or written rental agreement that states the length of time between rent payments - for example, a week or a month - but not the total number of weeks or months that the agreement will be in effect.
Tenant's notice to end a periodic tenancy
To end a periodic rental agreement (for example, a month-to-month agreement), you must give your landlord proper written notice before you move.
Technically, a lease can be construed as a periodic tenancy as there is a beginning and an end point, however, it does not seem to apply.
Now of course, our failure to render a notice gives the owner the rights to rent the property on Oct 1, and if we reside there, we would be subject to fees and penalties.
Essentially, we are just wondering if a 30 day notice is actually REQUIRED...there is no stipulation in the lease agreement.
Thank you for your responses in advance...
