I'm on a Texas Apartment Association standard lease with addendums based upon the property's procedures. In the base TAA lease, it states that following the terms of the original rental lease, if the lease is not renewed then it automatically converts into a substantially higher cost month-to-month agreement yet requiring 60 days notice when they collect rent monthly. Is this practice legal? My reasoning for waiting until the last moment was knowing whether I'd get laid off and have to relocate. I know my issues aren't their issues but I'd like to get out in a month and not get saddled with two months of abusive costs.
