A: It depends on the language of your lease agreement with your landlord.

Although MTM fees aren’t common in Texas, this would be a typical situation where such a fee would apply since you are holding over beyond the end of your lease term.

A: I'm assuming the MTM fee means month-to-month fee.

No matter when you get notice to vacate the place you rent, you have to pay for the time you occupy a rental place. Don't get caught up in legal names. Giving someone over 30 days notice to vacate is lawful in most instances.

I hope this answers your question.

Good Luck!
