My lease is set to expire at the end of next month. I thought I was supposed to give 30 days notice, but this specific apartment requires 60 days notice. I got a phone call last night saying they forgot to send out the reminder letter, but needed to know when i was moving out exactly. Since I didn't give the 60 days notice, they are trying to make me stay until 60 days from yesterday (which would be Oct 22) even though my lease is up at end of the month (Aug 31). I have no problem staying until the end of September seeing as I forgot to give them notice, but staying another month after that seems ridiculous, especially since they are raising my rent to 'month-month' rates.

I re-read my lease and saw the following at the end of it and am wondering how you guys interpret it....

"If we require you to give us more than 30 days written notice to move-out before the end of the Lease Contract term, we will give you a written reminder not less than 5 days nor more than 90 days before your deadline for giving us your written move-out notice. If we fail to provide a reminder notice, 30 days written notice to move out is required"

Since they are requiring more than 30 days notice and didnt send written notification 5 days prior to needing said notification, I should be able to only give 30 days notice, correct?

Of course. If they acknowledged that they forgot to send the letter (are you sure they said that?) then you're off the hook.

I would follow up the phone calls with an email just so the conversation is documented.

Then get them to sign on the extension and terms.

Somebody at the office messed up and didn't do their job properly. Just go in to talk with them in person, calmly and pleasantly, and show them that clause. If you can't do that, just phone and ask to talk to the manager.

Yea they were snippity on the phone with me when we talked last time. So I emailed the lady I had been talking to and copy/pasted that section of the lease and told her I'd be giving 30 days notice instead of 60 days since they didnt send the letter out. She hasnt responded lol
