Can you please share with me what your question is?
So they accepted the past due rent and then gave you a notice to vacate thereafter? You have an actual lease and do not rent month to month, correct?
Thank you. If they accepted the rent, after the agreed upon date and there was nothing past due, then they could not evict you the next day for the violation of the lease. However, you shared that you renewed the lease last October and if it is set to expire at the end of next month, they do not have to renew it if they do not want to and the notice the gave you, could have been in regard to terminating the lease agreement when it expires.
So today is the last day of the lease?
If they accepted the rent and you cured the past due rent, then they could not simply terminate the new lease term that starts tomorrow. If they refused to accepted the rent AFTER the due date, that would have been fine but if they accepted it, they could not act in bad faith and say they are terminating the October lease, when there was no lease violation or legal basis to do so.
Then there would be no basis to evict you since you cured the rent.
While they can demand that you vacate, you do not have to if you do not think they have a legal basis to support the eviction. You would have to be in breach of the lease for that to happen and if there was no breach because you cured it and they accepted the rent, then you would have a defense if they try and evict you. They can not use self help to get you out and would need to proceed through the court if they wanted to and it would be up for the Judge to decide.
