Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to providing you with the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Even though you have given verbal notice on the recording that you were terminating the lease, if the landlord is requesting to meet with you, then you need to meet with him and you also need to follow up that meeting with a written letter to the landlord summarizing what took place in the meeting and confirming what was discussed. This protect you as well, because it prevents the landlord from later denying what took place or from trying to change what was said.
The landlord is entitled to know what your plans are for vacating once you told them you would be vacating upon the end of the lease, that is if you actually know what your plans are other than that you will not be renewing his lease. IF you do not know what your plans are other than you will not be renewing, then you can tell him that and tell him you will be out on the last day of the lease term.
