I am in the proccess of moving out of state. I am current on rent and am in no violation of the lease. My landlord has told me that I have to have all my stuff out by Saturday July 24,2010. They deposited my check for July's rent. Is this legal?

They cannot force you out before the end of the month. Any legal action they take will not be effective until after you are long gone. If they try to lock you out, they are violating the law and are subject to legal action for damages.
