I don't understand when exactly do I need to give notice of

I don't understand when exactly do I need to give notice of leaving my apartment. My lease ended August 31st 2016 and I'm still in the unit but I want to move out beginning October.I want to make sure I'm not breaking the lease. To take into consideration:-I did not receive a written notice that I could stay,but the landlord kept accepting my rent payment (always on time by direct deposit)I had to pay for renters insurance directly to the Property Managemetn and never received any document regarding my insurance. I have been told that I need to pay again yearly insurance which I haven't done yet, because I want to move out and because I think the insurance wasn't handled correctly.The lease states the following:Absent some written agreement with Owner granting Renter additional occupancy time, Renter shall vacate the Premises at the expiration of the lease term without further notice or demand from Owner. If Tenant intends to vacate the Premises at the end of the lease, Tenant shall give Owner written notice of that fact at least 30 days before the end of the lease. Tenant shall be liable to pay all rent due through the later of : (a) the end of the lease term, or (b) 30 days from the service on the Owner of Renter's notice, or (c) the date renter vacates the Premises.(d) Expiration/Holdover/Death-NoticeRenter shall vacate the Premises upon expiration of the term of the lease without notice to vacate from Owner being required. Any holdover without Owner's consent shall be deemed a trespass and damages shall accrue at a daily charge equal to twice the pro-rated monthly Lease rent. A holdover with owner's written consent unless otherwise agreed, shall be a month-to-month tenancy subject to all covenants, and conditions of the Lease. A thirty day notice from Renter is required to terminate any such holdover tenancy. Renter's death shall not terminate any remaining rental obligation for the balance of the Lease-term but Owner, at Owner's option, may take possession of the Premises and re-rent them to mitigate any damages.In consideration of this rental, Renter shall obtain and pay for any insurance coverage necessary to protect Renter from any loss or expense due to personal injury or property damage, including but not limited to that caused by any act or omission of any party, including Owner or co-tenants, criminal act, war, riot, insurrection, fire or act of God. The amount of monetary damage caused to Owner by renter's breach of this agreement shall be deemed to be an amount equal to the amount of any loss sustained by renter by any such act or event and shall offset any claim by Renter against Owner. Tenant(s) agree to accept financial responsibility for any damage to the premises from fire or casualty caused by Tenants' negligence. Tenants agree to carry a standard renter's insurance policy.(a) Tenant(s) agree not to make any claims against Owner and will hold Owner harmless therefrom for any loss or damage to any personal property belonging to Tenant(s) or any of their guests or occupants or for any injuries to Tenant(s) or any of their guests or occupants and not to make any repairs at the expenseof Owner. Tenant(s) shall be responsible for obtaining insurance to protect against any such loss or damage.(b) Tenant(s) insurance shall contain a minimum of $300,000 General Liability Insurance.(c) Tenant(s) shall have the Owner and Rohcs Property Management Co. named as Additional Insureds.(d) Any use of Tenant(s) of the Owner's storage or garage / parking facilities shall be at the Tenant(s) risk and Owner shall not be responsible for any loss or damage.

I was in a car accident which left me disabled. I had to leave my job and was on short-term and long-term disability through my job for over 1 year. I also had a personal injury case pending on this accident, my disability insurance company asked me to apply for ssi disability benefits which I did. My case settled my attorney negotiated a reduced payback amount for the disability benefits I received. The insurance company recived a check from my lawyer. I was well enough to go back to work after several surgeries. I am possibly going to receive retro ssi benefits for the period of time that I was not working. My question is since my repayment of my disability was already negotiated and paid, do I get to keep the retro ssi payment

in june I was thrown out of a 2 story window by a man who has a lot of mental issues. I spent many months in hospitals and nursing homes. I am still disabled from that. Afterward when I was discharged I tried to file a police report but the police said there is a report and the paramedics stated the suspect admitted that he held me hostage in his apartment but I allegedly jumped out of the window. I was not conscience. This was a lie. I had to have emergency surgery at the time of the incident. The hospital acknowledged that my safety was in jeopardy. He stole my purse my rent money my cell phone.This same person went to another town where I lived and filed a small claims against me for $3000.00 the judge ruled in favor of him because I cannot drive and was unable to attend the hearing.Where do I stand now at this time?
