I have been at the same location for 30 years. I have a employee that rents a travel trailer from my landlord on the same property. They are having issues with maintenance and rent and going through a battle in court. He called me in his office and basically told me he wanted her off the property and if I didn't find a way to make sure she was not working at my establishment that it would effect my business. He has kept his word and it has upset my customers and caused me lose business. Therefore I have decided to move from a place where I spent half my life at and was always a good and moral tenant.
I am not leaving because he has won! I am leaving because of what I care about the most. My Customers and Employees!
You will doubtless be surprised to read this, but your Lease from 30 years ago still governs the manner in which you exit. That Lease, old and moldy though it may be, has continued all these years in a month-to-month capacity and if it doesn't provide otherwise and if you are paying rental monthly, then yes you will need to furnish 30 days advance notice of lease termination. See TPC 91.001(b): http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PR/htm/PR.91.htm.

I agree with Stuart. Please read the reference statutory law. Despite the advancement of time, the dated lease still controls. If the term has expired, which it undoubtedly has, then you are on a month to month basis and therefore must provide 30 days written notice.
