Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site.
Sorry you are dealing with this situation. By law when a lease expires at the end of the term, the tenancy becomes a month-to-month tenancy. What this means is you have to provide notice that you are vacating. That is 28 days notice to vacate the premises. However, the landlord must provide you as the tenant 28 days notice before increasing rent. Both notices must be in writing.
Therefore, if a tenant gives a 28 day notice to vacate, then the current rent rate will remain in affect. You should be able to stay in the residence for at the same rent rate provided you did not receive 28 day notice. The rent would be prorated for the time in September but should be at your current rate.
All my best and encouragement. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which truthfully addresses your question.
