San Bernardino, CA asked in Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: Is a landlord still required to provide 30 days notice if notice is given at the end of a year lease?

I moved into a rental property on 11/1/2017 with a year lease. On 9/27/2018 I received a letter from the property management company verifying my lease was being extended and my rent was being raised. On 10/3/2018 I received an email notifying me to move out by 10/31/2018 - giving me less than 30 days notice. Upon requesting the company to extend my notice to 30 days I was told that the owner was not required to provide 30 days given the lease was to expire. Do I have a case against the property management company or owner for failing to provide 30 days notice?

A: No, because you actually had I year's notice, right? He did not need to give you additional notice. If you wish to stay, you will have to pay his revised rent. You might try contacting him with a counter offer -- spit the difference between his new rent and your current. If you want to add an additional persuader, enclose a check for the new rent figure. Can't hurt!
