In Illinois suburbs (not Chicago), I have a "month-to-month" tenant (no lease), who moved in mid-month. We mutually agreed that her "month" term is the 12th of one month to the 12th of the following month. On 3/22, tenant gave notice (intending it to be a 30-day notice) that she will be moving out. I need to make sure that we both understand correctly what "30 day notice" actually means. My interpretation is that notice must be 30 days in advance of the end of the next full tenancy period (which it is, because next full tenancy period would be 4/12 thru 5/12) , and that she still owes for rent and utility payments thru 5/12. Correct ?
From the information you supplied, I agree that her 3/22 notice will terminate the lease as of 5/12.
Yes, your interpretation is correct.
