We are currently in a month to month situation. Our lease expired in January and our landlord never sent a renewal, so we have just continued to pay every month as usual. We've found a new apartment and if we are approved we're going to take it. So my question is this: How to end a month to month lease? What am I required to do/responsible for? I know in NYC it's 30 days notice, so is it possible to have that 30 days notice end mid-month? Our rent is due on the first every month -- so I guess what I'm wondering is if the 30 days ends in the middle of the next month, will the rent be prorated or I am responsible for an entire month (beyond the 30 days)? Example: If I give 30 days notice today for move out mid-September and rent is due September 1, do I pay ALL of September, or only the part of the month I am in the unit?

Hope this makes sense. I think I know the answer but am looking for any feedback/experiences. Since it's just month to month with no valid lease I can't seem to figure out a clear answer.

I did this for a while. If your rent is due on the 1st and you give your notice on the 15th I think you would just have to pay the 2 weeks for of rent. Or you could just avoid and head aches by making your move in on the first.

Taken from NYC Rent Guidelines Board

A month-to-month tenancy outside New York City may be terminated by either party by giving at least one month’s notice before the expiration of the tenancy. For example, if the landlord wants the tenant to move out by November 1 and the rent is due on the first of each month, the landlord must give notice by September 30. In New York City, 30 days’ notice is required, rather than one month.
