If the landlord serves a 60 day notice to terminate, the tenant owes rent covering the 60 day period (as well as any rent owed covering the period prior to service of the 60 day notice). If the tenant accepts rent to cover rent for the period after the 60 day period, the acceptance of rent creates a new month-to-month tenancy, which voids the 60 day notice.
