It's actually my dads.

We were renting an apartment, and he decided to move the family to a cheaper one.
Our lease ends on August 24th, and the lease says we need to give a 30-day notice.

Does that mean we would give notice on July 24th or Today (July 1st)?

Again, the lease ONLY says to give a 30-day notice.

I my state the 30 days means at least one day before the day of the month the rent is due so it covers the full 30 days...in your case,July 23rd.
However, some accept any 30 day period so you have to check with the lease, the LL or your state law.

Notices are (usually) based on the payment cycle.

But rather than stand on ceremony or officialness there is no reason you can't or shouldn't
inform the LL of your intention to leave the SECOND that you know you'll be going
(and have the new place to go to all lined up).

Communication... it's a GoodThing.

The lease ends on the 24th (or 23rd can't recall exactly) so it depends on the rent payment cycle. If you pay rent on July 1st that covers you from the 1st to the 31st, then likely you will pay rent until the last day of August.

That said, I would talk to the LL and let him know you are moving. The lease is until the 23/24 so you are covered from any eviction proceedings as long as the rent is current. I say this as if the LL is annoyed you are moving, it still won't effect the tenancy.

If you have a good relationship with the LL, just ask him when he would want the notice. Or, you could also (again if you are paying the rent until the end of August)issue a 60 day notice today that would take effect September 1st.

If you are ready to give your notice...then give your notice, doesn't matter if you a few days early...it does matter if you are a few days late. Just get it over with.

Exactly. When it says 30 day notice, that is the minimum required. There will be no problems if you give them 32, 35, 40 or any amount more. In fact, the landlord will almost certainly be appreciative since it gives them more time to plan for you moving and get a new tenant lined up.
