I own a 2BR-2BA condo in the City of Los Angeles. I live in one BR-BA & rent out the other month-to-month. My tenant's rent is due on the first; his deposit was two rental periods, though the apartment is furnished; & each side agreed to give the other side 30 days's notice; if he gave less than 30 days' notice, he forfeits the deposit.
So my tenant gave me notice in the middle of the month (the 15th) & said that he only wanted to pay two week's worth rent on his last month. We have a written contract but it doesn't address pro-rating rent. He moved in on the first of the month so it wasn't an issue then. But I'd rather he pay a full month's rent, regardless when he moves out, since he'll be there on the first when rent is due, & he gets his entire deposit back.
What's LA & CA law?My tenant did give me 30 days notice--he just gave it on the 15th, in the middle of the month. He wants to move out on the 15th of NEXT month. And on that last month, he only wants to pay half the usual rent. My position is, he's there on the first, full rent is due on the first, and our rental agreement (it's not a lease, it's month-to-month) says nothing about pro-rating rent.
