Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

The 30/60 day notice requirement is only for month to month leases. Cal. Civ. Code, Section 1946. There is no similar requirement for a lease for a set term. The lease terminates automatically on the last day unless the lease itself requires a particular amount of notice. Many leases do, though, so read through the document to see if they're obligated to tell you in advance that they decided not to renew.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reply WITHOUT RATING so I may address them. My goal is to provide you with excellent customer service. Otherwise, please rate my answer positively so I get credit for assisting you today. Mobile users may have to scroll to the right. Thank you.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
