A: The legally required standard for notice to terminate the rental agreement, if there is no lease, is one period of occupancy or payment period. If you were month to month, this means you need to give one month's notice you will not be renewing the lease. If you are going week to week, that means that you only need to give a week's notice. The answer here will depend on whether or not you are month to month or week to week, as paying weekly is not the same as having a week to week lease.

That said, regardless of the answer, it would be prudent of you to give your landlord more than one week's notice that you are moving out. 30 days is considered standard.
