Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Thank you for the additional information.
As the offer to renew was made and accepted, and you were already in possession of the premises, you are a month to month tenant and the landlord's attempt to terminate is defective.
By law, you are entitled to 15 days notice prior to the end of the next rental period. So, your tenancy goes to the end of February. You still have to pay rent, though, so, return the rent check to the landlord.
