My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Pennsylvania (City of Philadelphia)
My lease agreement states that I must notify the landlord of intent to renew or relocate within 60 days of the end of the lease. I informed my landlord that I wanted to renew 70 days before the end of the lease. I never heard anything back from my landlord (although my rent checks continued to be cashed). A week before the lease was up, I called and e-mailed to ask whether he also was interested in renewing. I called and e-mailed again 2 days before, 1 day before, and the day of.
My lease has now been up for 4 days and there still hasn't been any response. There is nothing in the text of the lease about reverting to a month-to-month. I have never had any problems with this landlord before, but I am afraid of being evicted, even though I gave proper notice per the terms of the lease.
I have put aside the money for this month's rent in a savings account by itself, so I can show that I am able to pay the rent and intend to pay the rent. What else do I need to do to protect myself?
