I've been in CA in a rent controlled apartment for over 6 years. When I moved in I paid 1st (1000.00), LAST (1000.00), DEPOSIT (500.00) and a fe pro-rated days for early-move-in.
Since then, we have gotten a new landlord (one guy for the first 5.5 and another for the last year)...the new guy had us sign a new lease but I still have a copy of what I originally paid.
I'm planning on giving notice to vacate this coming Oct. 1 but it will most likely be a few days over 30 days OR as much as 60 (i'll know this BEFORE I give notice). How do I deal with paying rent? Also, the rent has increased by $50/month since my deposit. So should I state in the letter that I am not paying the last month's rent because it was done so upon move-in but I WILL pay the $50 difference PLUS the pro-rated days for the overlap into the next month, etc? AND just pay it all up front?
