I have a lease signed back on August 1st 2009 and it extends month to month until May 30, 2010. The lease clearly states that tenant or landlord may end agreement for any reason without cause by providing the other with a 30 day written notice of termination of lease. The lease does not mention anything about paying the remaining months or even paying one month. What am I obligated to pay if the lease does not state the regulations of what should be paid? I know Georgia law states that the tenant is bound by whatever is in the lease, but my lease just says to give a 30 day notice? Now I plan to send my 30 day notice when I send November rent.
If that is what it truly says, yes. However, it would be highly unusual for a lease to allow the tenant to simply give 30 days’ notice and move out early. Have the entire lease reviewed by a local, qualified attorney.
If you would like to discuss any issues further, please feel free to contact my office. The link to my contact information is below. Thank you.
