I rent a house out in Fremont CA. The rental contract ends

I rent a house out in Fremont CA. The rental contract ends June 30th. I have given notice for not extending the contract several times from 6 months out. Now the tenant wants another 30 days. What should I do to make sure he moves after 30 days. Can I increase the rent to closer to market rate for this 30 days extension, more as a discouragement to stay beyond?

My husband and I have rented a house in Chandler, AZ 5

My husband and I have rented a house in Chandler, AZ for almost 5 years. In May, we got an email from the property management company, which stated that the owner plans to sell the house after our lease ends on July 31. They also asked us if we would be interested in ending the lease a month early. I emailed them back, acknowledged that the owner would sell the house, and said I would let them know when we found a new place before I could answer if we were interested in ending the lease a month early.We just got approved for another rental on Monday, June 20. When I asked the property management company if the offer to leave the lease one month early was still available, they said no, because we haven't turned in a 30-days' notice, so we will be required to pay full month's rent for July, even if we've moved out before July 1.Here are my questions:1. Were we served notice properly?2. If we were served notice properly, are we still required to give 30 days' notice and pay the full rent for July?3. If we weren't served notice properly, what are our options?Thank you!
