My lease is ending June 30th it states that I must receive writing by landlord within 60 days if not going to renew.
I have received an email from the REALTOR not my landlord about not renewing. Is this considered in writing and from my Landlord? I am looking to find a new place actively, but having a hard time finding something as of yet. I was hoping I can extend my lease for another 2-4 weeks in July..
Is the realtor the landlord's agent? if so, this may constitute notice from the landlord. Does the lease address this? You may want to ask the landlord if you can stay on as month to month while you look for a new place. If the landlord doesn't have a ready tenant, they may be willing to consider this as either party can terminate the month to month tenancy with at least 15 days notice before the end of a lease term.

Landlord's agent is likely the same and landlord. It will not void the notice more than likely.
