As my 60 day notice deadline approached, I was still unsure if I'd renew, or rent a house, so I looked at my lease and noticed the provision in p.37 which states "If we require more than 30 days moveout notice, we will give you a written reminder not less than 5 days before your moveout notice deadline. If we fail to give notice, 30 days applies.". Since their notice reqmt to me had passed, i assumed my notice reqmt was reduced to 30 days. So I found a house, inked a lease, and typed up my notice reqmt for the 30 days. When I provided the manager with the 30 days notice, she refused to even acknowledge receipt, and said 60 days applies. The manager told me their notice was sent, but failed to produce any evidence of it. I never received any notice whatsoever. How does this play out?
a lawyer needs to review the entire lease... the notice provisions are important...
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
