You most confirm with what the landlord has asked. However, if you do not find a place in 30 days ask for an extension. Make sure you are actively looking for a new place and pay your landlord his/her rent. Just so you know as long as you are paying you rent, judges are sympathetic to people in your situation as long as you can prove you are actively looking.
Best of luck
