I have seen similar questions posted, but I want to verify the treatmnet for rental agreements in Los Angeles, CA.
I have been a month-to-month tenant for several years now and live in a rent controlled apartment building. My rent is due the 1st of every month.
My lease is very vague on giving notice. I want to give my 30-day notice on June 15th, so I move out by July 15th. For the month of July - do I need to pay full rent or can I pro-rate it?
An attorney told me that I am stuck paying a full months rent - he said I can give notice anytime the month before but have to pay a full month rent for the last month. For example, give notice June 15th to begin on July 1, so I leave the end of July.
If this is incorrect and I can pro-rate the rent can you please give me some law to quote in my notice I send to my apartment managers? I have had a lot of troubles with my managers to date and envision them trying to get full month rent.
Thanks so much!!!
