Sorry if I sound stupid but I thought that without a current signed lease covering the last 5 months that one week notice would be acceptable
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

as there was an original lease in place, you are technically a month by month tenant, even though the lease expired.
