I already have a new place, and they have a new tenant for my condo. Is she legally bound to her verbal agreement from last week?

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!

We've been JTWRS co-owners in my parent's home yrs.

We've been JTWRS co-owners in my parent's home for 28 yrs. after helping them purchase the home with our initial investment of $40k. They want to include the home in their trust assuring us a min. inheritance of 100k and dividing the remaining proceeds among my 3 siblings as their inheritance. We don't feel this is fair and are concerned about taxes all the way around. They are concerned about losing the home if one or both need long term care someday. I insist they can't be forced to sell the home as long as we're JTWRS and will survive the applicable look back period. Can they include the home in the trust (with us still as JTWRS) without us signing a quit claim deed turning the property over to the trust?
