Review your lease and speak with an attorney. No one can answer your questions without all of the facts - lease terms, late payments, lease violations etc etc.

Technically you and your landlord must give you notice to vacate between the 1st and the 15th of the month for the end of the month. If he gives you notice after the 15th then it would be for the end of the next month. You may want to get your lease renewed in writing if you are concerned about your landlord.

15 days, not sure if it has to coincide with the date you pay your rent payment so if they gave you notice to move yesterday then you may have to be out no later than15 days from yesterday. I would hope your landlord would be more considerate and give you more notice than 15 days--especially since you've been a great tenant for 3 years!

All the best,

When your lease expired and you didn't sign a new lease, you became a tenant on a month-to-month tenancy. Either party may terminate the month-to-month tenancy by giving 15 days notice to the other party. In other words, if your rent is due on the 1st, notice would need to be served on you by the 15th of the month, instructing you to be out by the first of the next month. If your rent is due on the first of he month and notice wasn't served on you by the fifteenth of the previous month, you couldn't legally be asked to leave until the first of the following month.
