We have been told to vacate our rental within 30 days. We were notified shortly after an ongoing plumbing issue was addressed.

It depends in large part on the terms of your lease agreement. If your lease is up and the lease only requires your landlord to now give 30 days notice to vacate, it may be within the property owner's rights to ask you to leave in accordance with the terms of the lease.

I moved out of my apartment on 5/31 (the end of the lease) and now they are sending me a bill for $2,700 because apparently I was required to give 60 day notice to move out. Is there anything a I can do to dispute this?
