If your lease terminates/expires without you moving out, the landlord would have a right to allow you to remain as a month-to-month tenant OR evict you if you don't move out voluntarily. If the lease expires without any action of the landlord, then you'd be entitled to a 15 day notice to vacate. Here's a good link you can read:

Similarly, your landlord is required to give you a 15 day notice if he plans to increase your rent. Here's a link you can read about that as well:

So, your landlord would have to give you notice at least 15 days from the end of the lease if he intends to raise your rent or if he intends for you not to remain in the property after the lease.
