I am a renter and the home I live in is managed by a

I am a renter and the home I live in is managed by a property management company. I am moving out after a full year lease and there are discrepancies in what I say I owe and what they say is owing. I printed off the transactions ledger from their web site so I could look at it in more detail. Have been going back and forth with them about what they say and what I know. Then I go back to their website and pull up the ledger again and they have manipulated to show what they say. I have the first one I printed and I can see where they started the manipulation. Is this legal?

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.
