Q: Expired lease, no renewal
Our lease has been up since May 31, 2020. It says they will no longer automatically renew leases They never contacted us if we wanted to stay or not. But they have continued to cash our checks no problem . With the proper 30 days notice can we move out since we never signed a renewal?
A: Talk to the landlord to confirm that they agree, and when the lease will terminate when you give notice.
A: You became a hold over tenant on a month to month basis. You can give your 30 day notice and move out. However, the thirty (30) days cannot run into the next month or term. So giving your thirty (30) day notice on 12/08/2020, would run into 01/2021 so your move out date would be 02/01/2021.
