You moved in? Then you are on a month to month agreement. You dont have to sign anything.
What city is this house in?

If you are renting from the mother you should have dealt with the mother because you can never be sure whether your roommate is going to forget to tell her or even lie about it.

I also took a quick glance look at CA rental rights and it does state you must give thirty days written notice, even with a verbal agreement to rent, so in theory you do owe her and she may have a case if she takes you to small claims court.

Call the Inglewood housing authority (310) 412-5221 and tell them your story.
They will tell you if there are any laws/regulations in the city of inglewood and how they effect your situation.

I also have witnesses that I have told her 30 days notice

I cant tell you how many times I have been to court where my opponent had "witnesses" to a verbal agreement. The judges dont care when it comes to rentals; they hate it when people say things were "verbal". Dont tick off the judge.

Ok thank you. I was trying to look for the 30 day notice on ca law on no verbal or no written agreement but I didnt see anything on it unless you had a written agreement.

Here's what CA law says:

Quote:
In an oral rental agreement, you and the landlord agree orally (not in writing) that you will rent the rental unit. In addition, you agree to pay a specified rent for a specified period of time —for example, a week or a month. This kind of rental agreement is legally binding on both you and the landlord, even though it is not in writing.
Quote:
To end a periodic rental agreement (for example, a month-to-month agreement), you must give your landlord proper written notice before you move. You must give the landlord the same amount of notice as there are days between rent payments. This means that if you pay rent monthly, you must give the landlord written notice at least 30 days before you move.
I would think that your rental agreement is your verbal agreement and that you would be on a month-to-month basis.
