This would depend on the arrangement you have with the landlord, so review your lease agreement. The norm is usually 30 days.

30 days notice would be required on a month to month. Landlord's always love it when you give them even more notice but obviously you are only going to do that once you have secured your next place.

If you are on a month to month lease; it seems to me that your lease expired and you are going monthly rental now until further notice. So, here's my advise:
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.
Good Luck!

The answer is in your lease document - read it carefully. Generally the laws in NJ favor the tenant. You should have been given a Truth in Renting brochure from you agent. The most important place to look is your lease - and keep your little brochure at the ready as well as a guide.

I agree with Lynn and Marilyn. You should check the original lease that you signed. Any provisions in that will probably override and standard procedure.

Month to month means that with 30 days notice either the tenant or landlord can end the lease. You do not have to give 60 days notice. You might think it would be nice, but if you do and the landlord is annoyed, he can then give you 30 days notice and you'd have to go.

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.)

Good luck,

You definitely need to check the Terms of the original Lease -- if for some reason you're not able to give the necessary number of days notice, you may be subject to a penalty of some sort (e.g., one month's rent). If and when you give notice, I'd suggest that you do so in writing and keep a copy so that you can document when notice was given.

Terms of any agreement is governed by the executed lease . Confer to documents signed

What does your lease say? You need to read it. It will give you the only answer.

Nonth to Month seems to imply that you are renting a month at a time, I would imagine that at least a 30 day notice is needed, but if you have a deposit on this rental, then you need to ask your landlord about how much notice will be needed, this will save your deposit from any kind of breech in agreement

The usual answer is no, unless you and the landlord made some other arrangement. Just let your landlord know a month before. That way the rental can go back on the market.

Hope that helped!
