The lease is month-to-month, with rent due on the first of the month. The landlord provided a 30-day notice to vacate on the 13th of the month. Is this legal? Can the notice be given at any time, or does it have to be 30 days from the start of the next rent cycle, since it was the middle of the month when we were contacted about this notice?
Even if your landlord files for bankruptcy protection and surrenders the property, you have the right to stay for the remainder of any valid lease agreement. In your case though, since it was a month to month agreement, that only gives you another thirty days.
As far as issuing the notice in the middle of the month, it really depends on the written terms of your lease agreement.
