Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Without a lease agreement in place you would be considered a month to month tenant. To end the tenancy the landlord would need to give you at least a 30 day notice. If you pay your rent on the first of the month the landlord would need to give the notice before if they wanted it to terminate at the end of the month. Assuming that is the case here if the landlord just texted you the notice to vacate it would actually give you until the end of July to vacate assuming you paid your rent on the 1st and not the 15th or prior to today.
