Q: We had a 12 month lease which ended in 2019, but I'm still living in the rental. Never signed a new one.

A: Yes except that the ‘term’ of the lease is now month to month and the rent can change with a month’s notice in the proper (written) form. The other terms (pets, utilities etc.) remain as in the written lease.

A: The terms of a one year lease continue to control the relationship between landlord and tenant upon the expiration of the lease and the tenants remain in the property. This is called a month to month tenancy. Your "new" tenancy expires at the end of each month.
