Yes. Your lease requires written notice of intent to vacate on or before the 15th of month in which you plan to vacate. (For instance, if you plan to move out by June 30th, you will need to give notice by June 15th.) All leases are month-to-month, so the last day of your lease is the last day of the month. There is no discount for moving out before the last day of the month, however, please plan your move out carefully because holding over after the 1st renews the obligation to pay rent for a month and may result in us relocating your items if the unit has already been re-rented. If you choose not to give notice, you may be charged additional rent and/or late fees.
Within four (4) weeks of the last day of your lease. To ensure that you receive your deposit back, please give notice of when you plan to move out, make sure the property manager has your current address on file, clean and remove all items from your unit and remove your lock.
