Unhappy No lease apartment in Glendale, CA

My mother and I had a lease at this current apartment in Glendale, CA. When I got married, my husband moved in with us and he was never added to the lease. My mother passed away a couple of years ago, but prior to that, our lease ended and we were living here month to month. No new lease signed. Now my husband and I want to move out by March 31st and we were told that we still needed to give a 30 day notice. Since today is the 11th of March, they told us that we still need to pay up to April 11th. Is this true? Even without a lease?

The management is aware that the reason we are leaving is because the upstairs neighbors who moved in about 6 months ago, that we have constantly complained about being excessively noisy and loud, who also has a child that is always running and stomping around, has been driving us crazy! They let the little girl bounce a ball at times and it never occurs to them to stop her. I seriously feel as if I am living with a war zone above my head. The noise can go until 11:00 pm to after midnight even during the week!

Whenever the apartment manager goes up there to tell them that we are complaining, the man will stomp louder and even go to the balcony and yell down and scream at us. They can care less about common courtesy or the fact that they have neighbors below them.

So, after knowing all this, does anyone know if we still have to pay and give a 30 day notice. Some say it is the law but may differ in Glendale, CA. Please help!

You can move anytime... the caveat it you remain on the hook for 30 days from the date of notice.

If someone is ready to move in... you might get a break.

I had a tenant move on short notice... place was left move in condition... as luck would have it... I had a new tenant in and paying rent 7 days later... I did refund 21 days of the 30 day notice because of this.

As long as the unit is habitable... which is defined by law most places, you remain on the hook.

A local lawyer could give specifics... good luck.

Yes, everywhere I lived always required the x day of notice.

Also if you want to get back and annoy your neighbor, i would suggest:
If you have balconies and they keep their windows open, start burning incense or smoking outside
If you have a hifi/subwoofer, aim it to a common wall (preferably non that are adjacent to your other neighbors) and turn it up. The bass will travel up the wall

Arent they holding a 1 months "Security deposit"? If you dont pay, they might just take the remaining balance out of the deposit.

That is not how it works.
Security deposits are paid in case of any damage to the unit.
Most rental agreements state it is not to be used as rent.
Deposits are returned usually within 21 days of vacating.
