Do you have your original lease you signed?
It should state under "Renewal of Lease" your terms agreed to upon signing. It's typically that the landlord must offer you a renewal of the lease (normally 60 days before the lease expires) unless there is good cause not to and within so many days (typically 30) after the tenant receives the landlord's renewal the tenant will notify the landlord if they accept it. If not, it is considered rejected and the tenant must vacate the premises at the end of the term.
What was the original lease you signed? Did it state month to month after the first term? Did it say it would automatically renew year to year? Look at the terms of your original lease and that should help clarify the issues you are dealing with.
Also, have you told the landlord/property manager about the bug issue? If you haven't done so already, you should put it in writing and notify them immediately.
