If you had to move very suddenly near the end of the month, would you pay your landlord for the following month?
Let's say that you needed to move suddenly, like only a few days before the end of the month, and you'd given your landlord no notice. You are either not bound by a lease. Would you feel responsible to cover the following month?

You ARE bound by the law. In every state, there is a legal notice period. In a 30 day state, you are legally obligated to pay for the following month. In a 60 day state it's two months. No lease is required. A verbal rental agreement binds you, by law. Florida is the only state I'm aware of that is less than 30 days, at 15.

You HAVE to pay them, you don't get to choose. The law requires you to pay.

If NO lease then you are bound by a month to month lease & you would have to.

You signed a contract agreeing to leave a 30 day notice, so that's what you need to do.

You would be legally required to - one month's notice is a minimum.

Legally you are a month to month tenant and are required to give a months notice, so if you can't give the notice before you leave, you stillneed legally to give the months notice and pay the following months rent

Feeling have absolutely NOTHING to do with a contract and if you have been renting the place, even paid for one month, then you HAVE a contract. You owe last month's rent and you must give proper notice. If you don't give notice, then you will be evicted so that the landlord can legally re-rent the place that you are renting and you will also owe at least for the month following your move out month, probably more. Playing stupid games when landlord & tenant law is so black & white is just plain stupid. You will regret it in the end.Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Landlord & Tenant law experience.

Feeling responsible has nothing to do with it, legally you owe for at least the next month, more potentially depending on local laws.
