1- Read your lease and see when it expired. If your lease expired; then you should have another written or verbal agreement with your landlord. follow that agreement.
2- What ever you do at this point, it should be in WRITING. 1 copy for you and MAIL a copy to your landlord.
3- if you are on month to month, then it is logical, you NEED to give a 30 day written notice.
Unwavering Commitment to Service
According to "Truth in Renting" published by the Division of Consumer Affairs, written notice must be given 1 month in advance. For example, if your rent is due on the first of January, you must provide the landlord written notice by midnight of December 1st.
Typically on a month to month 30 days notice is sufficient unless you had made other arrangements with your landlord either written and/or verbally. If you have, then that agreement must be followed. Be sure also to follow the 30 day notice provisions in your lease (if it must be written, served by certified mail, etc.)
