Was told that since I gave notice on 8Sep in Iowa that I would have to pay rent until 30Oct. I questioned this since this was more than the 30 day notice which I provided and was told that if he was providing an eviction notice that that was the length of time that I would be provided to get out so that would be the amount of time that I would have to pay since I didn't give notice on the 1st. Is this correct?
I am NOT an IA attorney, but what you describe is a common requirement in many states. Check the IA statute at IA Code § 562A.34

We have not established an attorney-client relationship unless we have a signed representation agreement and you have paid me. I give a 100% effort to get you on the right track with your issue.
