My lease is about to expire and I am facing another year- to year renewal, but I'd rather do month to month which will be more flexible for me since I am planning to move to another area. My landlady only interested in 1 year lease. Someone told me that after 1 term I have the right to month to month lease?
Is this true?

only if the landlord accepts rent for another month without a new lease being signed.

Well, you may not have the option. I use to live in one of the Archstone properties here in a Southern California. It is a big property management company. About two months before my year lease was up, they sent me a notice "encouraging" me to renew for another year. I say encourage because my rent would only go up about $80 a month if I signed another year lease; it would have went up about $400 a month had I elected to go month to month. I have found if you rent from individuals, it generally automatically goes month to month. Big leasing companies stick you with another year lease because they benefit from making certain their complexes are full.

Since it sounds like you rent from an individual, I am going to guess she wants you to leave if she insists you sign another year lease, especially if she thinks you want to move anyway. Some landlords like people to leave after a lease is up so they can raise the rent to their satisfaction, especially if you live in a rent contol area.
