I entered a month to month rental lease agreement on December 1, 2017 thru December 1, 2019. I presented to my landlord 30 days notification to terminate the lease on May 1st, 2018 due to unfairness of utility distribution among tenants. What are the consequences of breaking the month to month Lease agreement? What should I owe the Landlord?
The precise answer to your two questions will depend upon the specific terms of the month to month lease document which you signed. Generally speaking, a month to month tenant can terminate the tenancy by serving a written 30 day notice with no financial consequences.
