I gave my landlord notice on the 3rd of July of my intent to vacate at the end of my lease July 31 this year. It doesn’t specify in my lease that I have to give 30 days notice unless I was under month-to-month status. She is trying to charge me rent for the month of August. Can she do this? Basically she’s saying because I didn’t give her 30 days notice of my intention to vacate that she can charge me for August? How is this possible when my lease is up on the 31st?!

Re: Lease Agreement
If you had a one year lease ending at the end of July and there were no automatic renewal provisions, the landlady can’t charge you rent beyond the end of the lease period if you moved out on time. If there was a clause in the lease that said it would automatically become a month to month lease unless you give notice to vacate 30 days in advance, then the landlady can collect for August.
