Hi Guys,

I am considering moving out of my apartment. Reason is that landlord is not providing good service. My lease is going to end on 31st August.

I just want to know do I need to give 30 days notice (1st august) even though lease is going to end?

I would. It won't cost you anything and it may prevent problems.

Check your lease. Even if the lease is supposed to end on the 31st it may state that you must still give 30 days or face a penalty of some sort (such as paying the next months rent even if you have moved out). I would do it just as common courtesy if nothing else.

Just move out right away. I gave them more than 30 days notice and they still kept my security.

yes i still would give 30 days notice, just so the landlord knows you wont be renewing and give ample time to find another tenant--it's only fair

Do it in writing, via email, if you can. That way you have proof.

Email is not proof. You need a return recipt letter.

Yes, you do, and do so in writing! I was burned by this once. I spent 6 months in Houston, and rented an apartment in a big complex with a 6 month lease. When it was time for me to move out, I found it wasn't enough to just not renew the lease, I was supposed to have formally told them I wasn't renewing. I had to pay an extra month rent!

Like some said... check your lease... some leases have auto-renewing built into them if you don't provide, in writing, notification that you plan to terminate the lease.
