Pacoima, CA asked in Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: I gave a 30 notice mid February making my 30th day the 17th but I moved out the 11th, do I have to pay the 17 day rent?

The 30 day notice says pay the full months rent and the rent will be refunded according to date you vacate. I vacated the 11th but management said I must pay up to the 17th because that is my 30th day. Why should I have to pay extra because of February being a shorter month? Also it says refunds will be based on date vacated not based on your 30th day. They're trying to say I would be refunded the 18th day and onward because I am supposed to pay up to the 17th(30th day of notice which was given mid Feb). Is that correct? regardless if I moved sooner am I supposed to be responsible for the full 17 days? I personally think it's ridiculous. They don't refund me anything During shorter months. Also if that's the case I feel the document should be worded differently.
