What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NJ
I have a year lease that expires 10/31. The landlord sent me a letter saying I have to let him know if I'm staying or not by 10/1, but then the letter goes on to say that if he doesn't hear from me by 10/30 I will be considered a holdover tenant and will be subject to various penalties. So does this mean I have to let him know if I'm staying by 10/1 or do I actually have until 10/30? I've been looking for another place to live but have had no luck and need more time.
