Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to give 30 days written notice if you no longer have a written lease and you are now a month to month tenant UNLESS your previous lease specified another notice period, because even if that lease is expired and that means you can cancel at any time, the notice period for cancellation in that lease would still apply and if it is more than 30 days you need to comply with that notice period. If there is no notice period in the lease, 30 days written notice is all that is necessary.
