A: It is hard to tell from the information that you gave what kind of tenancy you have. Assuming that you have 30 days to move out, and that you gave the landlord a security deposit, the main question may be whether or not you get your security deposit back. Landlords love to find excuses for not giving you back your security deposit. If you left the place clean and without damage, you should be alright. Good Luck.
