Does a fixed lease move out date supersede any 30 day notice given to the landlord?

Asked about 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

Lease is 6 months. Gave 30 day notice that we were vacating. Spoke to our property management supervisor and verbally told them that our last day will in fact be the final day of our lease not 30 days from the date they receive the 30 day notice. We payed the prorated cost yet they moved our stuff out 30 days from the receipt of notice. Since they moved our belongings out we should be entitled a refund of the difference in the prorated rent.

    Answered . You were wrongfully evicted!!! You can sue the jerks for not only the difference in the prorated rent, but for any damage to your belongings, the cost of immediately moving and storing your belongings, and your emotional distress for being made temporally homeless.

    Answered . Christopher, who by the way is a hell of a tenant attorney, makes his living suing idiot landlords who failed remedial landlord school. You should give him a call. Anytime a landlord puts their tenant out without the assistance of the Local Sheriff's Department, they have violated the law. It truly is that simple.

    A proper response would require a thorough investigation into the history and background of this relationship.... more
